I love tablets, and I love how more brands are moving away from Nvidia's Tegra processor and slapping Intel in there. I hate Surface RT, and find it pointless. If you can't install exe files on the device, you're better off getting an Android or iOS device. The only downside to this tablet for me is the fact that it has an 8 inch screen. I hate 7 and 8 inch screens. You might as well get a Samsung Note. If you're getting a tablet, get a tablet. 10 inch screen is a must in my opinion. Anything less than that is a Phablet.

@biohazrdfeardoes it matter what you want to call it? I own both the 10 inch and 7 inch nexus, and find myself using the 7 inch far more often simply because it fits in the backpockets of my jeans and jacket pockets. It's the most convenient thing to reach for if I wanted any light browsing/content consumption. for anything serious i'd rather use my PC or watch a movie on that nice big TV. the 10 inch sees less and less usage everyday. Personally, I see 10 inch tablets as a device for non-professionals who choose not to get an ultrabook.

Its not what I want to call it. Its what it is. A Phablet. 7 and 8 inch devices are simply not large enough for me, and I would rather look at a phone screen than that. Oh, and does it matter what you see a 10 inch tablet as? Apparently not since you say it doesn't matter what I call it. Personally I'm about to sell my Toshiba Thrive and get a Surface Pro. Oh, and I do own a laptop as well. Just sayin'.

I will kind of disagree about 7" and 8" tablets - I have both a Samsung Galaxy and a Dell Venue 8 Pro, and they are both amazing for the tasks that they do. The Venue 8 Pro is practically a full PC in the size of a tablet. I love the take anywhere size of the Galaxy Tab that fits in my pocket and has (somewhat limited) 4G access that makes it even better.

I guess this is so low res because Windoze 8 still sucks at scaling. Meanwhile Samsung has released a 2560 x 1600 8.4" tablet which will do me very nicely.
