    I like it, but before I get too excited, they need to leak the PRICE. This thing needs to be $300, tops.

    • CX1

      249 tops inc/ keyboard

        I really doubt keyboard.. no other tablet includes a keyboard especially for that price.

        Maybe even have a $50 note in the box… /s

    notice windows key in now like ipad… vertical position… is this going to be for all W8 tabs going forward or just on 8″?

    • 8″

      probably only 8″ and maybe not even in 8″.
      Windows was created to use horizontally and that makes sense since everyone I know who has a tablet (Windows, Android or iOS) uses it horizontally…

    Acer! Do it! This is great!
    Now all that needs to happen is: the W8 and WP stores combine to make one.

    Mmm… I would really like a 4:3 version

    I don’t think MS would allow a Windows-tablet without a Windows-logo/button.

    Edit:
    Oh, nevermind! I was looking at the camera. :D

      The button is on the right of the tablet.

    A netbook in tablet’s skin.. Intel needs to really get their low power processors together..

  • vmxr

    unleash this little beast to the market

  • Bugbog

    Now, sell that at £250, and my money is yours!

  • alukard

    I want it today. That said it should be rightly priced, 300 or less.

    W8? So this is a tablet for a small subset of the 4% of the users brave enough to use this OS
