    • TPT2: the keyboard-dock has a trackpoint; the whole unit has business-class toughness; also a business-class customer service that operates from the U.S.; the Stylus seems to have an eraser (can anyone confirm?).
    Full disclosure: I was eyeing both but got the 500T because it's the only one available now.

    Here are my notes after researching both:

    TPT2 is same price with Ativ 500T. The Samsung has $50 off sale at Staples on launch date while we all know Lenovo never sells at actual msrp.

    TPT2's price doesn't include a pen.

    TPT2 is 10 inch, small screen.

    TPT2's keyboard is Bluetooth based, kind like a dock, with the tablet just sitting on it, looks like a carryover from TPT1 design. This is too old school- need to detach tablet before folding flat for storage. Also BT keyboards are just $20 on amazon if I want one.

    500T has the more modern transformer style keyboard. One can just close lid an go.

    If you guys are curious about the actual SKUs that will be available, you can see it here in the Lenovo Solutions Center.

    Sort by processor, select Intel Atom Z2760 and it will show the the MSRP and features of all the different SKUs. Fully loaded (Pen, 3G, NFC) is $1479.00 MSRP.

    I prefer 10 inch because its means more PPI, and more PPI means sharper dipslay.

    About keyboard, I prefer a not foldable keyboard with ThinkPad quality rather than cheap made foldable keyboard.

    This means you have to know your needs and then decide.

    From the unboxing video, yes, there is sim card slot next to microSD, but I;m afraid at this moment none of samsung;s new win8 tablet has a 3g/4g connectivity. I'm wondering is it still worth buying the old model xe700t-h01us?

    I don't care about the accessories (pens, BT keyboard) too much. I only care the design and quality of the tablet itself. It seems TPT2 is more solid than samsung's. Ativ 500T feels like more 'plastic' than TPTP2.

    Does anyone know whether the ATOM clover trail is capable of playing 1080P video?

    It is capable. But Im not sure about the file type. I mean its hard to tell whether it runs a 1080p MKV video , but it will run AVI/MP4.
