    Go MS go!

    Doubt I would get one, but you never know..... Shame they could not have been innovative and come out with a WinMo device first, and had an app store ready .... instead of playing catch up....

    I'm forming a random group of hooligans to kick the living crap out of netbook users at Starbucks. Is that hard core enough?

    Windows 7 boots in less than 30 seconds on a solid state disk. You can probably flash it rom and make it instant on like the iPad. The Ipad takes well over a minute if you do a full boot up.

    MS is capable of making a great tablet. They have many of the pieces already in place. Their handwriting recognition and searchable ink stuff is really great. They just need to commit real resources into making the experience touch and pend friendly. There are already some great tablets out there, but they are in the $2000-3000 price range.

    I'm guessing we are a year away from seeing the real deal from MS. In the meantime, I'll enjoy my iPad and see where things are when the time comes to replace it. :)

    The instant on is what I like about the iPad, if I could get that with a Windows machine that would run Windows programs and be able to use usb and memory cards etc I would certainly take a look. But to me even 30 seconds is to long.

    Only one thing to say use by date in computers is 12 weeks. That means a new model will replace an old model.
    By the time we see a win 7 solution is in fact most likely 4 generations old
    One wonders what Apple has will have in 12 months just a point ok not am argument.
