    Surface Pro is tempting, but it will be a lot more expensive, will be 50 percent heavier, and will have shorter battery life. Of course it will be more powerful, but for casual annotation I don't really need that. I'm still hoping that the TPT2 will come out in the US in the coming three weeks. MS Store still lists 'estimated ship date' as 12/31/2012, so that doesn't look too great. What a stock tease.

    And a fan - don't forget the fan. At this point, I will either give into temptation and get a Clover Trail Atom, or possibly, just possibly, be able to hold out for the arrival of Haswell...

    No, no, no, no, everyone must hold out for it, they must, it is going to be "awesome". I know it will runs a slower processor, but I think the additional features make up for it.

    Weight, stylus, battery power, and of course, it is a "Thinkpad".

    Come on, don't jump ship, the supplies are on the way, we will survive.

    In truth, though, I don't understand why Samsung can push the 500T with few problems, but Lenovo can't release the TPT2. All this talk about power management doesn't make any sense if Samsung already has a product to market that's managing power fine.

    The only thing that makes me think Lenovo's not just screwing the pooch, and probably getting screwed themselves, is that nobody wants to miss the holiday selling season. There's got to be something pretty wrong to push the release date out to December.
    Well Lenovo have lots of other computer to sell for the Holiday season. It could simply be they want to clear stock of the old Windows 7 devices before releasing the TPT2

    That may be so, but none of the other models interest me. I'm torn between the TPT2, the HP Envy X2 or the Samsung 500T. The latter may be plasticky and cheap-looking, but at least I can buy it NOW...

    If we are gonna go there, I am actually torn between a AR-15 (M4 Variant) for the Zombie Apocalypse and the TPT2 for fun. Not sure which is more imporant.

    I was just thinking, too, I am about to get a convertible Dell Tablet (Latitude XT3) from my Govt. Job, for work/home use. I plan to dual boot it, Win 7 / Win 8 and use Win 8 for personal use. (I am the computer assistant and make the PC/Notebook Images). I might pass on the TPT2,





    Naaaaa, I am gonna get it.

So I might have to tolerate its lame keyboard....Well, I use keyboards so rarely that it would probably be ok.
