    I was looking at this but I think I need something with a touch more power - so the Surface Pro. If this thing could handle XCOM, I'd buy it. :)

    Still no Windows 8 Pro version available. Next year, with no date specified.

    Kinda stupid for a tablet promoted as a "business-ready" device to only come with Windows 8 Home!

    I've been looking at the LTPT2 for quite some time as well. Glad to see that it is finally going to ship.
    Hopefully it will launch in Europe shortly after the US launch.

    Let us know what you think of it, will you?

    i just ordered one !
    64 GB wifi and digitizer pen unit.

    didnt buy too many accessories though. i think compatible accessories will be cheaper at amazon. Hdmi-Hdmi mini cable is available for 1/3rd the price at amazon. same for folio cases.

    A question - I have a thinkpad tablet (the first one) dock, will that be compatible with the thinkpad tablet 2 ???

    PuckCowboy -- have you gotten a ship date yet? Curiousisty is killing me! I did end up deciding to get one -- origianlly had a ship date of 1/9/13 but now pushed back to 1/13/13 :( -- although the accessories are shipping earlier with the sleeve shipped the 3rd and the keyboard is scheduled for the 9th...

    Sorry for the delayed response. I actually cancelled my order. MY TV in my room went out, so I put those funds towards a new Sony 3D HDTV which I love. Ive put my tablet purchase on hold since I'm still trying to decide what I might need it for. I use my laptop still for everything which I prefer. I mainly wanted it for an eReader for books, but decided to just get a new nice lighted eInk reader for $100 which are better for dedicated reading anyways. I think I will wait for Gen 2 Tablets before getting on board.

    Not to be rude but that is not true at all, the atom is an entirely different architecture that is not even 64 bit yet. If the atom was the same processor as the i3 then how does it get twice the battery life? And if you were look in in terms of benchmarks, last years i3 still greatly outperforms the current ten atom, so please explain to me how that works. Btw, I'm an electrical engineering major that has already taken many computer architecture classes and i sell computers as a side job while I'm in school, so i would know.

    Posting from my Thinkpad tablet 2! It arrived late last night and I spend the rest of the evening getting it set up and updated on my slow home WiFi.
    Brief initial impressions:
    Build quality is good. The keyboard build is decent, but a bit plasticy.
    Don't expect too much from the Atom processor... but so far it has handled windows 8 apps smoothly.
    I had a few crashes and issues before installing any updates, but it is much better now. I still had a strange glitch this morning, though, with apps not wanting to load.
    I think in the long run this will be a great device for me, though. I only installed one "legacy" app - Aptana, my IDE of choice. It works very well, if a bit slow to initially start.

    I'll try to post more later.

    yeah, the more I use it at work the more I like it. Its kinda ugly, not ugly as much as bland, but then what thinkpad isn't. Good news is, they are timeless classics and 10 years from now they will still look good. Really like the weight and build quality, but now dockable battery-extending keyboard was the dealbreaker for me :(
