    Lets see it with some programs set to load at start up and then try opening a browser window straight away to see if there is a performance hit. It sure looks impressive though and I can’t wait for this beauty to arrive.

      even if there’s a performance hit with apps set to start up (which people shouldn’t have anyway) we’re most likely looking at a sub 20 second.

        Why shouldn’t you have programs loading at start-up? I usually run background operations and it saves me time going to each icon and loading them manually

    the other day or a few months ago a couple patents popped up for Microsoft about fastboot. was this patented by Microsoft or it’s open for others to use?

    Unacceptable! I want my tablet to sense that I’m going to turn it on and to turn it’s self on before I do.

      Not possible.  MS doesn’t have enough apps in their marketplace like Apple. 
      There’s an app for that sort of stuff so you might want to get an iPad.

          LOL, dude I was being sarcastic.  I was making fun of Apple’s “there’s an app for that”.  I guess I should have been more obvious about my sarcasm :)

          Oh, and it’s “You’re ignorant” so….
