I won't buy a tablet until the size is equal to A4 paper size. And ofc, the tablet then has to be able to show all types of pdf files flawlessly.

I think apple being at the top has run its course and now apple will just blend into the background, its about time, really, there are tablets out there that are just as good or close to.

I will not be getting one.

I won't; I don't support how employees are treated by Foxconn. Sad to see how some people treat other just to get as much money as possible. Apple wins enough....

I will leave the rest of the talk to this page below.

I'd just not get an ARM version of Windows 8 tablet if I were you. I'd just get a Windows 7 tablet instead because I don't like having a desktop as an application and I'd always want to have a Windows 7 Start menu instead of Windows 8 Start screen. Metro is a "nice to have" rather a "must have for tablets" and for me, Windows 8 is too Metro-centric.

The bottom line is this: It's who I am and I don't want Microsoft controlling my mobile/desktop experience and I don't care for a wall gardened application store. To each their own, though.

As for iPad, it's not for me, so what's left for me to choose is an Android tablet or a tablet running Windows 7.

What would be cool, however, if I could dual-boot between Windows 7 and KDE, but then I'll need a large SSD just so I won't have to worry about running out of disk spae. Check this out:

HTPC: AMD Athlon X2 4050e CPU with 780G ATX motherboard running Windows 8 DP (4GB) and Ubuntu; Server: AMD AII X2 240e CPU with 880G-based ATX motherboard running Ubuntu Server 10.04 LTS (8GB)

2 pairs of Insignia NS-B2111s (front/rear), Pioneer SP-C21 Center Speaker, and 12" Velodyne Sub

Just ordered HP Pavilion dv7-6165us from QVC. Will have it by next Friday.

It will be interesting to see what the final Windows 8 tables are like.

I'm also curious to see what they'll come up with but hopefully the pc version won't be too "tablety"... or at least that it can be disabled. I really don't like all those widgets on my screen

When prices drop, I'll probably be getting one. Kids use the iPad 1 I have now though and it's more than enough. To be honest, I find my Galaxy Nexus a little more convenient, but still like the iPad for what it is.
