    Alright, I've searched the website and I haven't found one even close so here it goes.

    I'm looking for a slate tablet PC with (preferably) a detachable keyboard that can run mildly large games, and maybe has vertex shader 2.0 and pixel shader 2.0. And it would also be cool if it had Windows Vista.

    I'm in the USA (I'm not able to buy from another country) and I don't care about the price.

    Does anything besides the TX2500 fit the specs description?

    The tx2500 is strong enough to run semi-modern games, it has PS 2.0 and comes preloaded with Vista.

    However, it's a convertible and not a slate.

    Oh and if you're thinking of playing RTS titles... the pen does nothing but hinder the experience.

    Slate Tablet PCs are NOT for games. The only tablets that are really capable of running modern games efficiently, are the HP TX2500 and the Gateway C-142X. Now if you could leave the gaming to a desktop computer, then I would recommend checking out Motion Computing's LE1700. It runs Windows Vista natively, and you can purchase a detachable keyboard as an accessory.

    I will never understand why people want to play games on a tablet.

    I would play games in slate mode provided i had like a matias half keyboard so i could move. It would be super easy to get head shots in call of duty 4. all in all it would suck though.

    And not like my 2710p is capable of playing much anyways.

    Not really.. unless they are standing still, but in that case it would be super easy to get headshots using a mouse too.

    Alright. It's not of high importance that I get a slate. Just preferable. :)

    And I think I've made my decision.
