    No matter what others say, I’m really looking forward to this. The ability to use Windows on such a portable device is great. I previously owned an Hp TX2500z Vista, convertible, tablet pc and the use of the touch screen for taking notes during class with OneNote and Photoshop for my art was amazing. The biggest reason I want a W7 tablet is for media. Windows 7, being a real OS, can play every file type and container I own, including MKV (with subtitles) ,AVI, OGG, FLV, MP4, MOV and  the list goes on.

    I was completely let down by the video playback experience on the Acer Iconia a500 and Toshiba Thrive. I returned both to Best Buy because neither of them could play AVI, forget MKV or FLV, files out the box or with Mplayer, QQplayer or Act one…the playback was slow and choppy in every player I got from the market and Gallery gave me a message saying it couldn’t play it at all. Amazingly, the same files that would play on these tablets could play on my EVO 4G. I’m not going to convert every one of my videos to play on a media consumption device that I paid over $500 for because it can’t consume my media as is. Android and IOS tabs aren’t for me and what i want to do, so I’ll stick with real tablets…

    W7 as an OS instead of W8 is better for me since I don’t have to worry about program compatibility. After increasing the font/icon size in W7 to 125% and using Chrome, it’s the most touch friendly system around. This is just my opinion though…
