I wouldn't pay $100 for it. There is no way to load regular desktop apps on Win8 RT. I have no desire to be required to go through the Windows store for all my software.

More info here.

Yeah, this is their iPad competitor. It can't run regular desktop apps because it doesn't have nearly as much functionality, particularly backwards compatibility.

What you want is the Surface Pro. It's also what I want. Full laptop guts, i5 processor, desktop OS with a tablet UI, full customability... questions remain on price, resolution, battery life and heat. I can't say I'll buy it, but it's getting closer to something I will.
