    Yeah - I agree that a keyboard able to fold would have been very nice. However, I can live with the detachable keyboard, it will be like using my old HP TC1100 again. The Lenovo sleeve which holds both the tablet and keyboard looks fantastic.

    My problem is where to place the order. The shipping date of MS online store is so late. I am wondering if ordering from Lenovo may be cheaper and faster.

    Also, I don't think the MS store version comes with the pen. The Lenovo rep mentioned that it should be available by the end of the month. My order is scheduled to be filled next week but I will believe it when the device arrives. I have ordered the 64gb model with the 3g/4g mobile connection.

    Thanks for clarification. The 35% off goes for two of them or just one ?

    On the top of that, the keyboard connector is not magnetic but mechanic and that is a weak link for me; the keyboard does not have extra battery. I had so bad experience with TPT1 and in specific with TPT1 folio keyboard bad design (keyboard not holding tablet firm so tablet screen would rub constantly on the keyboard keeping the tablet away from sleep modus and constantly draining the battery).
    Sorry Lenovo but the competition has better technology and even more important to me, far better service.

    First, I have always had superior service from Lenovo.

    Second, I do not believe there is a magnetic keyboard that has a battery, so you will have to choose one or the other.

    The MS Store pre-order estimated ship date slipped to 12/28/2012. Also, the HP Envy estimated ship date is now pushed to January!

    Me thinks there may be an issue with the Clover Trail architecture. This is a repeat of the delays experienced when the Z670 OakTrail was released. Intel may be over-aggressively predicting launch shipments. This seems to be a pattern with not only the Atom launches of the last few years but also the 2nd generation "i" chips as well!

    I was thinking of buying a TPT2 or Envy X2 for Son #2 for the holidays and it looks like that will have to develop into a rain check.

    Maybe the topseller models will be available sooner?

    If the delays continue, many Atom sales will turn into Core i5 sales

    Not as far as I know. My order has just been pushed back to December - looks like Lenovo doesn't have these ready yet.
