Asus Tablet 810 breaks cover: 11.6-inch Windows 8 tablet on Intel Atom

Taipei’s Computex expo now brings us the Asus Tablet 810 - a Windows 8 tablet looking like the Asus Transformer series, but with a 11.6-inch screen and an Intel Atom processor under the hood. The Atom chip is basically the biggest difference between the newly announced Asus Tablet 810, and Tablet 600 which features ARM silicon.
And for those of you waiting for those Windows 8 tablets, they’re finally here, so get ready to break the piggy bank. Windows 8 with an unspecified Intel Medfield chip sounds like a great combination, and the 2GB of RAM included make the deal sweeter. There’s also an 8-megapixel rear camera, all fitting in a very thin, 0.34-inch (8.7mm) body.
The display on the Asus Tablet 810 is an 11.6-inch Super IPS+ one with a resolution of 1366x768 pixels. The tablet comes with a dock with a hidden hinge design, a feature that hides the actual hinge when the dock is open. A Wacom dual-digitizer allows you to paint on the glass with both the pen and your fingers.

i wanna know the price. hope microsoft has learned that you cant price a tablet at 1500 and expect the masses to buy it. if they want to take the tablet market from apple they need to price it right.

So... let me get this straight. This thing will be able to run Minecraft, and is basically a full-blown Windows laptop with "desktop mode" and everything. And it'll be able to download regular programs as well as apps from the Windows Marketplace? Considering getting this over the tf700t. The sad thing is, it won't be able to run PS CS5 or Premiere CS5 without 4 GB of RAM. Maybe it'll be able to be upgraded somehow.

RT is the ARM version. basically its "mobile only" with no desktop mode. Its pretty much the way WP7 is already. Windows 8 is the full desktop version that runs on intel x86 chips like a normal PC. If you want full functionality and desktop compatibility then u do not want RT. However you will probably be paying a pretty penny for the full version as the specs bump is pretty substantial.
