As soon as I saw Windows RT, the word "Flop" immediately entered my mind, left its children in my brain and pleasantly left - letting me know before-hand that this device is, quite firmly, going to flop.
Good Game RT.
You don't buy a device running Windows that can't run Windows programs - that's what it's known for and once you take away that core value it becomes almost worthless.
This is all coming from the owner of a crudload of PC's, Mac's, tablets, phones and one Surface RT.
I've seen the Dell and Lenovo tablets and I'm heavily considering getting a Dell, but at this point I'm leaning more toward selling my iPad 2 and getting a first generation Surface Pro.This is a tablet running full Windows 8.1, not RT. There are 4 vendors who is going to release $300-$400 8" tablets running full Windows 8.1 using Intel Bay Trail Atom:
All of them will include full version of Office, microSD, microUSB and IPS panel. Some of them will include microHDMI.
Asus has a slightly larger model at 10" plus keyboard dock, selling slightly higher than the competition.
