    Yeah, I wasn't really expecting too much in the way of Windows stuff at CES as a lot of major vendors are starting to back away from that sort of thing (the past few years CES has been more about televisions than anything else), but I really would've thought that at least Samsung would have a few more models of Ativ devices or something.

    Sure wish that had subtitles, because it really is a good review of features. I got lost in the hand motions, but it sure looks to me like it has a power input and separate mini/micro USB out. The Asus "Aircast" looks like a great hookup for those big monitor sessions. Asus is going to have a big hit on its hands with this one.

    Nope, it only has one input, a single Micro USB at the top.

    It looks exactly like the manual says.

    I hope that is not the reason. It would be nice if this one could charge while using USB (without extraordinary measures). Does the Miix 8 charge while using usb?

    Is charging and data transfer at the same time really that much of an issue for an 8" Bay Trail tablet?

    It hasn't been for me so far =) Still I'd prefer to have the option to dock it and use it like a desktop. It isn't a big deal for me though.

    I think for those that want to make the 8" tablet their one and only computer it is a big issue, and for a lot of use cases I think these 8" Bay Trails are fully capable of that role if not for a couple nit picks like this one.

    You are getting dangerously close to 3K posts =P
