    1280x 800 = 16x10

    The tablet looks really good, definitely like the keyboard and being able to dock it. It has the Atom 3775 so it's an 'upgrade' from the current 8" tablets out there (except Lenovo's). Screen looks nice and crisp as well.

    Glad to see an Active stylus as well. Considering Dell finally(!) figured out the Synaptics stylus (only took 3 revisions..) and is shipping one that works, it should be good to go.

    It doesn't have a silo, the headphone port sort of looks like one.

    Might have to sell of the DV8P and get this.

    So they ditch the touchpad for a larger keyboard (comparing with current T100). Wonder if dock/keyboard will also include additional storage.

    The main disadvantage is the lack of micro HDMI like T100 Chi or Toshiba Satellite Click Mini have both of them.
    Windows tablet without HDMI is deal breaker.

    RE: Silo... it looks like it could be a pen clip silo. As in the pen's clip slides into it. There was another new tablet that did that. I think it's a Toshiba.

    You know there is a T100 Chi coming, too, right?
    At 8.9 inches, if the pen is any good, I can definitely see the sense in ditching a touchpad.

    fwiw, I'm good with 16:9, and I like the fact that a movie fills the screen better. But I don't really know all of the reasons for desiring the iPad/Surface Pro ratio. Maybe if someone sat down next to me and showed me what I'm missing with a 16:9, I would get it.
    To be fair, I use my T100 as a true laptop/tablet hybrid. Maybe if I used a device more as a true tablet I would get it.
    *edit*
    I also don't use a stylus. It seems to me that is a factor in wanting a 3:2 (or 4:3?) aspect ratio? maybe a wider screen works better as a note pad in portrait mode?
