crazy to see that some of the test make it comparable to the i3-330.. but it uses 1/3 the amount of power.. This would be a great tablet for people that want to just watch movies, do internet browsing and all while having the option to do some real work on full MS office

its nice it has AMD Z-01 which i think has HD 6250.

but the design is not that nice, and the Price is crazy. at least now someone can install Windows Dev Preview on it! which would make it better

I dare say that with the right hardware, Win8 tablets with the free Pre-Dev could start selling well by the end of the year! I have been running the Developer Preview since day one as my main OS, and I use my computer constantly to do a LOT of different things. Over the last 15 days It has crashed exactly 7 times, mostly from trying to launch Skype that still does not work.
