Everyone seems to be looking for the right device, and the right device just doesn't seem to be out there. Don't get me wrong, there's a few really nice devices and I bet they are perfect for some people, but all-in-all the current offerings underwhelm. I just posted a blog entry about my own search and what I've found. http://digitaltapestry.net/blog/looking-for-a-windows-8-device
I think the three top devices right now are this one if you're a gamer, the Transformer Book if you're not interested in pen input and the Surface if you need the pen input. None are really what I want.
