    Damn, no pen support. It would be my next purchase if it did. Looks like I’ll hold out for surface 2.

      When Microsoft invented the Tablet-P.C. back in 2001 they have always envisioned it to be stylus-orientated, look at the software on Windows XP Tablet-P.C. Edition (and later Windows Vista, Windows 7 and Windows 8) it includes a plethora of extra pen-centric apps, clearly most hardware makers haven’t got the note, yet (–_–)

    Looks awesome, can’t wait to use Windows 8.1 (Blue), now I’m having regret buying my notebook/laptop the moment Windows 8 came out, they made superior hardware later, although this regret is easily outweighed by the awesomeness of the O.S. and Cloud-integration of it, I love Windows 8, Microsoft and worship/adore Steve Ballmer for my presently outdated P.C. anyway, hardware is obsolete after 3 months in the tech world, I’m glad Microsoft is now issueing yearly releases of Windows, this will make them more competitive in both the software and hardware (as each next release has higher minimum requirements) markets.
