I was wondering if anyone here knew much about the windows tables that are in the works. The only tablet I have seen up close is the Asus EEE slate. I was hoping that more news would be one the way for other tablets such as the one that Lenovo is working on. I really liked the Asus slate but it sold so fast when the price came down. Let me know what you know.

It looks like all the interesting Windows tablet products will be released at the same time as Windows 8. The current product offerings just aren't very interesting.

for field work like to move from laptops to tablets but since most of the utilities we use are for Windows OS (some still DOS), unable. Hope Windows 8 will allow the move.

^^Going with x86 tablets should allow you to continue to use the software you need. Using DOS box to support the DOS apps. If you ever want to look to see how DOS box can be configured have a look at gog.com they have classic DOS games bundled in DOS Box. The game Ultima 4 is free. A friend of mine and I actually had a multiplayer game of MOO2 going with virtual modems over ip addresses. Pretty slick!

1) Windows 8 is optimized for 16:9 display (1366x768, etc). Most win7 tablet have a 1280x800. Certain feature will not work with 1280x800.
2) Windows 8 is optimized for touch screen that supports 5 simultaneous touches. Win7 tablet might support just 2 simultaneous touches.

Good point! I think Metro requires a minimum of 1366x768.
