Well... with those features I don't think is going to be very fast. It's probably gonna fall within the scores of the samsung with the Atom also.
For 200 more I can get a tablet PC with an i5, at least 64GB, usb 3.0 port. Besides the optional dock.... thanks but no thanks.

Having played with one myself, there is no question that the processor lacks some performance against the "Core I" processors, however its certainly very usable and a lot better than the old Atom chips. Definitely competent enough for an exec who wants email and internet access, or someone who is not a heavy user. Also, In my opinion, the Elitepad having DOUBLE the battery life as a "Core I" makes it very attractive.

What about support for external screens using the docking station. Will that support 2560x1440?

I've been using the wifi 64GB model which i purchased for 600 bucks. It's surprisingly fast for an atom and super responsive.

It's also super super thin, much thinner than a surface pro or any o the competing tablets. Super light. This things really is a great tablet. I see no reason to buy anything else in its price range, given that it's a full win 8 pro PC. The expansion jackets are GENIUS too. The whole thing is serviceable with a replaceable battery and screen too.

[citation][nom]boiler1990[/nom]Yeah, $1200 is a high asking price for this thing. It's almost no different than the Asus VivoTab Smart, which only costs $500.[/citation]

Wow never heard of the $1200 price tag, I think you're confused, see my above comment about the one I purchased discounted at $600 bucks it retails for $700 and thats the 64GB model. They also have a cheaper 32GB model.
