    I guess we should all thank Fujitsu for sticking with full voltage Wacom equipped convertibles when all others are abandoning the form factor...

    I vaguely recall that an Italian blogger mentioned that an X240t was forthcoming, somewhere on this forum, so maybe not all is lost.

    I hope that is true, and I also hope that it's not another 1366x768 LCD unit. Come the f on... What is this sh*t... etc...

    It's MS's fault for dictating 16:9 format for the UI Snap feature to work. The manuafacturers are rushing to contain that which is terrible. HP is breaking from that pack with the 16:10 Elitepad 900 (still not higher powered like you are looking for but a breakout nonetheless) and catching manure for not 'having a high enough resolution to make Window 8 work....whah.'

    I don't buy a TabletPC to be a portable movie player; I buy my mobile device to work. So with that I also despise Window 8 and yes, it is no longer "Windows" as MS is delivering us DOS 6.x like performance once again with non-multitasking full screen 'apps' so to me it is Window 8. On a 10" tablet it may make some sesne but I cannot wait to see the calculator displayed on one of my son's 27" high resolution monitors attached to his quad-core gaming desktop with dual video cards...
    regards,

    *New* ThinkPad i7 Helix (on order) - phenomenal cosmic power

    Dell Venue 8 Pro - my ultra mobile device (I cannot believe where I can stick this thing)

    Really? Is that why we were stuck at 1280x800 for last 8 years?

    Come on dude. Snap has nothing to do with anything. It's the ODMs being short sighted.

    Putting a 1080p screen on a 10" (or even 12") device is nonsense! People gotta step out of this bubble for a mere 5 seconds and realize that it makes the UI a hassle to be touched with a finger (even by people with small hands!). The result of this is that it makes the Pen an absolute necessity in Desktop-based programs. And when we remember that many new Tablet PCs are shipping without Pens, the demand for 1080p screens become ever more amusing. 1080p also makes text much harder to read if you use the tablet on laptop mode on your lap!

    What? Why not just upscale your dpi? High res isn't for a bigger workspace, it's for a clean nice res.

    Why not make an OS that really is made for a tablet, instead of half-*ssing it and keeping the desktop on tablets?

    AMEN! Seriously, the ODM are off the mark in both directions by wide margin. It's either 1366x768 on 12.5" or 1920x1080 on 10.1~11.6". WTF you morons!!!

    Someone get me $1M venture capital and I'll build us the perfect art tablet. F these marketing driven idiots that we are stuck with...

    We finally got that and all the app devs are doing the lowest common denominator dance on Modern UI side. We won't get any apps that uses decent CPU power as baseline in Modern UI for long LONG time. They will all aim for Tegra 3 as baseline, which means crappy weak powered apps like Sketchbook Express and its irk...

    No offense, but art work on a tablet represents what percentage of total sales?!
