    WRT the tablet, with the base specs of 2GB of RAM and 64GB of memory going for $599, this doesn't seem like the greatest value. You can get nearly identical specs for $200 less with the HP Omni 10, for example. Yeah, it's a slightly faster CPU and you get the active digitizer, but that's not worth a $200 premium for me.

    Of course, I'm speaking from the point of view of a consumer. Perhaps it's different from a business point of view.

    64GB of (presumably eMMC) storage, not memory.** Reply

    600$ makes it the cheapest Wacom full sized tablet with 64GB of storage, that I can think of anyway. Business, students and possibly some artists too would find this a solid option from where I'm sitting. Reply

    You can pick up Surface Pro refurb for quite a bit less, but I guess that is cheating. Reply

    Is the digitizer Wacom? I haven't seen anywhere that specified.

    But I suppose you're right, it would seem to be the cheapest 10" Windows tab around with an active digitizer, barring refurb Surface Pros.

    If you find a picture of the stylus you'll see that it is Wacom Reply

    With the way prices are dropping, I don't see how I can possibly not get a Windows 8 tablet in the next year. Being able to run desktop software on a sub-$1K tablet makes this very attractive. Reply

    Hmm, I wonder if Ubuntu would work well on this tablet. Reply

    Probably not. Reply

    That resolution means 16:10 and that alone is a major reason to consider buying this. I already own a T100 and it is great and Bay Trail is far better then I expected.

    My remaining question is will the drivers for pulling data in sleep be available for 64bit windows by the time this sells? If not it is a major knock against it.

    What about 16:10 makes you not want this tablet. Reply

    It's a lot nicer than 16:9 on a tablet, and on a desktop display as well. I think most Android tablets were 16:10 originally, dunno now, most of the original WinRT tablets were 16:9 and it was immediately noticeable and off putting. This is an x86 Win tablet tho, gotta wonder how well it scales at that res ands size on the desktop. Reply

    I said 16:10 was a major reason I DO want the tablet. The possible lack of connected standby is the potential killer. Reply

    Hi,

    $599 with pen? I don't think so. The base configuration is going for $599 but it doesn't have the digitizer(Its Wacom).

    That's a good price if its true.
