    #@$% you Red Baron!!!!!! We don't have a chance...

    As for your Bay Trail 8" question - to me it is a fatal flaw (combining the power and data port in one) because you have to choose between the two - there are tons of posts about the problem on the Dell Venue 8 Pro forum with trying to jerry-rig an adapter so you can plug in to a dock (or even a USB flash drive) while powering the device. There's a great, and FRUSTRATING, demo of the Bay Trail quality where a dock manufacturer demos a DV8P driving TWO monitors while transferring data on a USB port - BUT - it is only running from the battery. DRATS!

    PS - liking that Surface Pro 2 again...:D :thumbsup:

    Sigh....the only thing preventing me from getting a $599 surface pro is the battery life........

    Just want to highlight that the Lenovo Miix2 seemed to be the only 8in tablet that don't have this flaw of charging & using data at the same time without the need to rig the usb port.
