    Yeah, I've seen the Yoga. I'm not sure about the whole exposed keyboard in tablet mode thing. Looks interesting, though.

    Yeah something like that might be pretty sweet with Windows 8.

    I voted yes, but I'm kind of interested in a convertible laptop/tablet. I'll be interested to see what kind of form factors they introduce. In particular, I'd like it to be as thin as possible, so perhaps a convertible ultrabook. Basically, I'd still like to have a real keyboard.
    I would look out for what Fujitsu offers. They have been producing convertibles even in the face of everyone else going gaga over ios and android tables and have only been let down by Windows 7's poor touch performance and Intel's power hungry chips. If they can produce a thinner convertible with Intel's low power Atom's or whatever-Trail is their latest and greatest, and add Windows 8 with a Wacom digitiser that will be the one to look out for.

    My dad has one and it's an awesome piece of hardware. Running Windows 8, it'll be simply fantastic. :)

    Bought an Acer Iconia Tab W500 and put the consumer preview on it. Only had it four days but it runs really smoothly. Still learning my way around but so far really liking it.

    And yes an ARM Nokia W8 and low power x86 tablet will enter my house too. After Tab10.1 and ipad W8 is really how a tablet should be.

    What are you the grammar police I don't get :30 seconds to edit... lol
    I think people readers are getting more tuned in to grammar and spelling mistakes on the site, because more and more obvious mistakes are showing up in articles. Either authors/editors need more sleep, or they are leaving that job to the readers. Either way, your reputation is starting to slide. Not good.

    Running it on an AMD C60 netbook and quite responsive. Trackpad/mouse isn't as good an experience as touch, but not bad either. One big potential problem for Windows 8 is the jarring switch between Metro and desktop. I wish type-searching for an application in desktop mode did not toss you to Metro mode. Also touch searching should not require the user to know what kind of app (Program vs. Control Panel).

    Relatively minor annoyances aside, I like the OS, and I will be getting an x64 tablet when available. I'd have that Samsung now, but I expect a few hardware improvements and features for Windows 8 final.

    I'm 90% sure that I will get a WOA tablet. It will depend on the following:

    1. Will the WOA tablet have LTE thru Verizon?
    2. Will there be a 7" or 7.7" WOA tablet?
    3. Will it have my core required apps. I'm in the process of identifying them.
    4. Will Samsung be making be making the 7" or 7.7" WOA tablet?

    I'm hoping for something a bit larger than a tablet - like a laptop with touch screen.

    I'll want one but after paying $99 for a Touchpad I may have sticker shock. What are the chances of porting Windows 8 to the Touchpad?

    I'd be interested in Win 8 on my Touchpad too!

    "Into". Also, no need for a comma before "because" or "or".

    Just saying. ;)

    I would love a Nokia tablet. Only thing is, the Nokia ones will be running ARM, so limited Windows functionality. Maybe it won't be a big deal with a tablet. Been trying to think it over recently. WOA just kind of scares me.

    After using win8 for awhile on a laptop, yes. Under $1000, reasonably high res display, minimum 128gb, decent selection of ports. Can't wait.

    Are you kidding me? If Nokia turns out a 10 inch tablet with the same build form as the Lumia 900. I'm buy more than just one.I'm really liking the Nokia design for windows phone having a 710 and a HD7 if it was not for the screen size the 710 walks all over the HD7 So Nokia is on the right track if they do that for a win8 tablet I'm in both feet.

    I just have to decide between a WOA device and an x86 device.
