    First time I've ever been interested by a tablet.

    So not only do you decide on how big the storage you want, you get to choose the chipset too?

    Yeah..... good luck with that MS!

    LetsGo can almost taste the sweet smell of death in the air.

    Can video games be a force for good? My latest article says yes!

    If windows 8 is compatible with all the other windows programs then it would be my "tablet" of choice as it has bit torrent, loads of decent games, office etc.

    Sounds like you think it's basically a good iPad? :s

    It's a stupid comment.

    This does indeed look rather sexy.

    Speak the truth hussy!

    Yup, kudos to MS they managed to pull it out of the bag and fire my shiny instinct. Very nicely done!

    Windows 8 Pro (Intel / Fully fledged) will be, Windows 8 RT (ARM based - Metro-ised Windows) probably won't.

    I was honestly surprised to wake up and see that the entire tech world was not laughing their collective arse off at Microsoft. Long way to go yet, but it'll be interesting to see how this does. If it's really successful, would we see Microsoft building more and more of their own hardware?

    So I can have Visual Studio etc running on this thing? In super slick "laptop mode"?

    The Pro version yes. Which'll cost as much as an Ultrabook. RT will be limited to applications that support 'Metro' mode (and compiled for ARM presumably). The latter priced nearer the iPads of this world. Int truth, I suspect this is where it'll all fall apart - pricing.

    It's a balancing act for MS, they really can't afford to piss off their OEMs who will also be manufacturing tablets based around Windows 8. Having said that, having a flagship product for the new OS is definitely a wise move - set's expectations for consumers and hopefully keeps the OEMs shooting high.

    I was being a bit silly but I honestly think this is a bit dopey. Pro version weighs almosy 1kg and doesn't seem to have a dedicated gpu. As I've said elsewhere there are ultrabooks coming out with ivy bridge and nvidia gpus in the 1.5kg bracket. at this point with the price of both being the same why would you go for one of these over an ultrabook?

    I'm also yet to be convinced about windows 8 having good appstore compared to ios, I'm not hugely impressed with the android appstore store after switching to android on my phone

    Looks nice, but was hoping the design would be more like the tablets in the Avengers.

    That's what it will all come down to though - price. If this is significantly cheaper than the ultrabooks and competitive with the iPad then it will do very well indeed.

    As for the Apps, all much of a muchness if you ask me. Most are available on all platforms (albeit eventually), iOS just has better games.

    Yeah, only interested in the Pro version, but if it costs as much as an ultrabook then it'll be out of my range.

    That cover with the magnetic clips looks...smart

    Give yourself 5 or gig, you're worth it.

    Microsoft already said these will be ultrabook prices.

    Finally! They may well have taken their sweet time, but this actually looks okay. A tablet with a full OS that does not look like Fisher Price made for 'special kids', and some decent IO...and they are building it... well I wonder where they got that idea from. The smart cover keyboard will either be absolute genius or like typing on a ZX81. Oh, and Steam on a tablet, with a USB for that 360 controller - woot!

    And I take it they won't be available until Windows 8/RT is released, which is when? October?

    On the Metro apps front...shouldn't these explode into being after the release of Windows 8?

    It's going to be the number 1 OS in the world so devs would develop for it as a no brainer wouldn't they?

    Come and get it cumslingers!
