Are there any fanless tablets iPad-like which run on Windows? It has to have a USB port.

Preferably screen size of 7".

I already have an iPad. I have a specific reason and would like the screen to be between 5" & 7".

If you mean an iTouch the screen is too small & no USB. 7" is just about right.

Actually that was a joke about the current iPad. Sorry it wasnt obvious lol. Ive seen alot of interesting tablets come down the news feed but nothing seems to have become a hit yet.

It has to run on Windows. I think a lot of these devices are Android based. All the Android pdf readers I have looked at don't meet my requirements. The tablet I want is for reading pdf files and i will use a cordless mouse for scrolling. I am using now a Samsung Q1 UMPC which is good for reading but it's falling apart. I wrote an app to freeze the mouse pointer on the screen (it moves with I use the mouse's wheel). I put up a rig which is a very small table, sits on top of me while I am laying. The Q1 is stuck on its edge holding the Q1 facing me and all I have to do it is flip the page with the mouse wheel. I am not even holding the Q1. Call it the lazy man's reader.

The latest ViewPad by Viewsonic is running with Windows 7, the CPU is Intel processor code name Oak Trail. Fanless and safe power too.
