    Hi guys,
    I yearn for that very promising little pen supporting tablet and really think I'm gonna get one - unless it's gonna be too costly, cause, let's face it, it's got no Surface Pro Click-Keyboard.
    But where is it? Lenovo site says coming November, and there is a new sneak peek video, at the end of which the Lenovo guy says it there would be an event "next week" at the MoMa. Lenovo.de, as usual, barely even recognizes Windows 8. So, my fellow Windows fans from the Big Aplle, do you know anything about that event? Or at least prices for Tablet, Keyboard and Dock?
    Cheers,
    Andreas

    I've heard it's anywhere from $629 to $699 for the tablet. I think the cheapest price was for 1GB of RAM, 32GB SSD, and no stylus. The $699 I see at the Microsoft Store for preorder supposedly includes 2GB of RAM, a 64GB SSD, and a stylus.

    The keyboard is $120.

    Or you can get the tablet and keyboard together for $799

    I don't know how much the dock costs or about any events. I'm not liking the silence from all the OEMs. A lot of them said they would launch on the 26th, and that date has past and we've heard nothing from them. It's like they're not interested in selling these things.

    Thanks! I've heard rumours about issues with Atom drivers. Who knows. That talk wpcentral had with the Lenovo presenter was good for a lot of fun, though. German tech-blogs (sorry, I don't remember which) git from it that the tablet with keyboard and dock and everything would sell for 799 and include - yes, include, not just "be able to run" Office, PhotoShop and Quicken :D.

    Well, at least that's a somewhat reliable date. Thanks a lot! Maybe we'll hear something this week.
