Retrospectively, the hype was definitely justified. An in house tablet built from the ground up by Microsoft is huge,


I agree

Since forever, the big knock on Windows it it was a resource hog. Will Windows 8, RT, and Pro address this effectively?

I'm loving that touch keypad. If I understand correct, it folds all the way back around and stow out of the way?

There are two - Touch Cover and Type Cover. Type Cover is just 3mm, and both employ a magnetic attachment interface.

They both look incredible.

Doesn't show for sure if it flips all the way around. For me, if it can't stow that way, I'm gonna lose it.

It does, they showed it yesterday. When you flip it around, the keyboard deactivates.

This will be the Zune of tablets.




It will be a good product, just much too late.

This could be the first true gaming tablet. Developers are already saying that it has xbox360 controller support, and they are going to use it.
