Not much difference between those Clover Trail tablet ain't it? It hard to differentiate when you are already maxing the RAM, USB port, resolution and drive speed (eMMC). Hopefully Bay Trail with give the light weight long battery life Windows tablet a jump start. I'm afraid now that I'm expecting so much from it that when it comes out, I might be disappointed.

I am confused why anyone would be interested in this model? Lenovo's IdeaTab Lynx, is a bigger version with windows 8 as well, same specs, but you can find it for 350 on amazon...

It's an under-specced and under-powered thing all the way around. A toy even at half the price.

64GB is not enough, especially when the full Win8 is installed on the machine. It will hardly leave any space for local data, and it's going to be worse after the user starts installing applications.

You are right. Sometimes I think the vendors are crazy when it comes to price their products. That's the advantage Apple has over the others, they can price their products the way they see fit and not influenced by any partners. Microsoft probably should give up on working together and start pricing their devices more appropriately and set a leading example.

Not a bad device but why would anyone want this given the alternatives? I can use a much cheaper android tablet and remote into a Windows machine if I need Windows-specific functionality and I'm no genius.

For those of you who have a W8 tablet (non-RT) and wish there is a better way to navigate the legacy applications in the desktop using touch screen, you might be interested in this TouchMousePointer free software:

I wish Microsoft has included this as part of the OS feature.
