I had a good play with the TouchPad and liked it, (that said, it hasn't had the best of reviews).  Sad to see it fail so early, maybe the hardware will rise again as a Win8 device?

the "$64,000 question" is this:  is the thing slow due to a hardware problem or a software problem?

if it's the hardware / firmware then i'd not want to see them try to run windows on it... might just make windows look bad.
