Great selection, very very exciting. I was really hoping the RTs would be priced lower. I thought that there was an Acer RT tablet (or similar introductory-cost brand) that comes in at $399.99 without a dock?
Going to skip RT and go with Pro, not sure which one though. I like the form factor of the Dell XPS and the Asus Taichi (one with two touchscreens); the swivel one is neat but a tad bulky.

Going with the Pro here...
I like the Vaio Duo 11 and the Dell XPS Duo 12 form factor experimentation, but I like the Taichi best. Waiting for the 13 inch version, and I wish that at least comes with a 8 GB ram.
And I'm very impressed with the variety and build qualities of ASUS devices of late. They seem to have one for every one, and then some more.

I would pick between MS, Samsung, Asus or HP :)

considering the ivy bridge ones at $800-$900. anything higher, no. lower - no. I'd rather consider the Nexus 10 or a phablet.

Does anyone know when the Samsung Ativ Smart PC Pro comes out? Been waiting to get this and their is no info at all. I've heard from one place it will be available on the Oct. 26th but their is no advertising nor pre-ordering? actually I found that amazon has pre-order, but seems fishy do to no info even from Samsung themselves.

"Samsung's Windows 8 product line is available for pre-order now atwww.Samsung.com and will be available in stores October 26, 2012." that's from the press release...

I don't see the pre-order on their page, they just try to send you to other stores like best buy, that is a store close to me and their webpage has nothing for the Ativ Pro.

Dozens of choices... no customer was left behind! Very tough call!

No customer left behind, Except the budget minded ones.
I would love to be able to get one of these for my wife who is in nursing school but $500+ (not including a keyboard) is not an affortable option in this economy for me.

Thanks! I like your statement "...is not an affortable option in this economy for me." Operative words "for me". Because we know there are people who can afford this easily and may think the price is very reasonable for the product.
That said, like you I would have liked it if the prices were a bit less, but I've been saving up since April to ensure I could afford one of these devices upon release for a holiday purchase.

How's this for a form factor idea?
Transparent OLED/LCD screen with black and transparent liquid crystal panels on either side.
When the lid is up, back LC panel is opaque, front is transparent, when you close it, the image flips, back LC panel goes clear and the front LC panel goes opaque.
And of course touch on both sides.

A lot of good ones, not a lot of good prices. Microsoft Surface all the way!

A lot of good choices. I was hoping to see an offering from Fujitsu. I have a high-end LifeBook and absolutely love it and would happily part with my money for another Fujitsu product.

I cant decide between the $500 Surface RT, $500 Dell RT, or the Acer or ASUS $500 Windows 8 tablets.
14. vvelez5 posted on 25 Oct 2012, 14:48 0 0
I'm going with the Acer or Asus Windows 8 tablets. I just can't give up my legacy programs yet. I want the Surface so bad though.

My thing is, I'm not sold on the Intel Atom processors. Seems like with Haswell around the corner, which is supposed to be really efficient and have better integrated graphics. As for the RT tablets, I like the keyboard dock for the Dell but I like the Nvidia Tegra 3 better than the Dell's Snapdragon S4.

So many choices!!
It seems like the Ivy Bridge WIndows 8 Pro Tablet/PC is the way to go,
I'm thinking I might go with the Acer W700 Ivy Bridge at $800 or go crazy with Sony VAIO Tap 20" at $880.

good if PA can group which devices come with a simcard slot.... i mean windows ( 8 ) is now also a mobile OS, but surprisingly these hybrid devices dont come with one ?

wow folks the selection is mind blowing I dig the Lenovo 650 dollar win 8 ThinkPad tablet 2 or it's 600 dollar Lenovo win 8 Lynx. Lenovo formally bought IBM's
Laptop and PC business These people have been known to make damn good business laptops so I trust they will work well especially the Windows 8 ThinkPad Tablet 2
