I'm a little disappointed that this will be an OEM-only product. I guess that's because of the different drivers needed to support devices? It also probably means that we won't be seeing any non-metro ARM apps.

 

also this will mean that some folks will have to decide if they can afford 2 devices ....

what if someone has a real *NEED* to use some non metro apps but also wants to have a tablet / slate device ???  how many folks might just say "not now, i can't afford that much right now" ??

in some cases i can see folks buying an ARM slate with Windows 8 on it as a "second device" and that's ok at least ....
