Yeah, I saw that Engadget rumor spread to several online news outlets tonight. I may be starting to collect tablets like Robert collects handsets. But at $199, I would buy a Surface without a second thought.

 

While I am enjoying the Nexus 7 even more than I expected, I would like to have in the arsenal a landscape oriented tablet, too. And I just do not think that the TouchPad running CM9 is going to cut it anymore, as I have not turned it on since I first powered up the Nexus 7 a month ago.

If you are applying for a "Peel Grant' date='" I would read that contract very carefully.

Doesn't sound very a"peel"ing.

You cannot beat this deal. I will grant you the peel AND the banana. Right now.

As we say in New Mexico, "Holy Frijoles!!!"

 

Or more like Frijoles del Negro.

Nope, no alteration. You said "Goya." I mildly disapprove of all of you typing away on apps on your handsets. So, I poke fun at your many typos and auto correct errors.

 

:P

Swype is to blame. I knew there was something I didn't like about it.

What would the Windows 8 version cost that could run legacy apps? Any idea?

 

In the case of Windows 8 tablet, it will only run ARM based apps. Legacy apps like what you find on a regular PC won't run natively. And depending on who wants to take the time, maybe there will eventually be an emulator to do so.

There are 2 versions planned. One will be a pro version, and will run legacy apps.

I guess I fell out of the loop. Thanks for the clarification!

 

Here is a link to a little more info http://m.engadget.com/2012/06/18/microsoft-surface-tablets-the-differences-between-rt-and-window/?icid=eng_microsoft+surface_art

 

As far as pricing, the pro was supposed to be in the same price range as ultra books, so $600-800

Running Win 8 RTM right now, and have no problem with older software on my desktop. Especially with ham radio equipment software. Kind of nice having a MS Technet professional account.

Jealous! I'll be lucky if my college will allow me access to DreamSpark Premium this year.
