Just thought I'd let people know that I just had a play with one of these new Lenovo tablets running Windows 8 (http://www.lenovo.com/products/us/tablet/thinkpad/thinkpad-tablet-2/) and they are very good (our supplier had one that they were sending back out of the country today so was lucky to get a peek). I really dislike Windows 8 on the desktop / laptop but tablets are what it is made for and it worked really well.

I can see so many uses for this thing in our corporate environment and I reckon these things are going to tank laptop sales when they come out. It was running the full version of Windows Pro, 2 gigs of RAM, 64 gig hd, wifi and 3g. Could tell it was a pre-production model as the case was a bit creaky and build quality wasnt fantastic but that should be fixed when they come out.

If anyone is interested I have some photos I can put up. Overall, very impressed.

I have also seen it and played with it, and it was very nice.  I've seen a couple other offerings but this was by far the best.  We may look at it for an enterprise device also.
