You have NO idea! When I was working on the temp job with the Inclusive Technology stuff????

They have and "iPad" that is DESK SIZE !!!!! :o

So okay.... its aimed at teachers who have three other handicapped students at the other sides and she can slide games or lessons over to them to work on or.... OR its a DESK SIZED GAME TABLET and all touch controlled for instant interaction!!!!! :o :o :o Lets face it.... Apple think this is only for corporations or schools to purchase... the price is in the very high end....... but you know how gamers will spend anything to have the best technology right? :dance:

I thought the announcement was going to be for the xbox 720, but others called it, an MS tablet.

The specs on it are pretty impressive. 128gb tablet? that runs a full desktop OS? with an intel I5 chip? with usb 3.0 and mini display ports?

though, how can you say "priced like comparable tablets" when there aren't any with those specs? and no IR? surprising considering every damn tablet has them now.

It's Windows 8, so it is not running a full desktop OS. :D
What do you mean, IR? Like in infra red? Last time I saw an IR interface on a computer was a long time ago.

the newer tablets have them so they can be used as universal remotes. the vizio, samsung galaxy 2 and sony tablets have them.

Some are born great, some achieve greatness and some have greatness thrust upon them.

Let me know what is like when you get used to it, what bothered me was there were no specs with it.
