>> "The most staggering news? A hint that Windows 7 will be the operating system, and that an Intel Core i5 processor will be powering it."
Second most staggering news? It will weigh 25lbs and the battery life will be measured in minutes.
What part of "Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn" don't you understand?
You think a screen 2 inches bigger adds 23.4 lbs more than an iPad? I think it'll still be manageable if done right. I'll have to partially agree with the battery life comment though. I don't know how you keep a 12 inch screen running with a full blown OS and an i5 processor without slamming your battery...we shall see, I'm hoping for the best.

No. I think the battery will weigh 23.4lbs. ;)
Those specs are released already - the battery life is (at least targeted to be) 10 hours and the device should be very lightweight. If that's the case, I don't believe they'll actually hit the $599 price-tag some people have thought this would go for, but it likely indicates they're not cutting corners - possibly even an OLED screen?
Physical proof of the Roswell crash is now on display in the Smithsonian! And a Win7 Pad is here, lightweight and under 4Bills:P
Oh wait, Thats Monica's Pad...and its under one Bill and nothing happened, and thats the truth!
>> Those specs are released already
Can you link that for us? Every site I've seen says the detailed specs won't be out until Jan 4th. I know that they're *aiming* for 10hr battery life (battery type: unknown, weight: unknown), but I'll be surprised if that doesn't require a battery 3x bigger than other pads, or if it's in sleep mode for 5 of those hours.
I for one certainly wouldn't run out to buy one without seeing what the HH testing shows first, given the performance of every other Intel-powered tablet.
