Fingers crossed – I just bought a Windows 8 upgradeable tablet

So I took the plunge. I jumped right in.

I wanted to inform you of a red hot deal that I myself just took advantage of at the Microsoft store.

Microsoft are selling the EXOPC Windows 7 Slate at the Microsoft Store at a …wait for it…300 dollar discount!

It’s down from $699 to $399.

I just bought one myself and will be upgrading it to Windows 8 when the Windows 8 Beta comes out in February.

This model has:

  • An multi-touch display
  • 2 GB of RAM allows for smooth multitasking
  • 1.3-megapixel webcam
  • Wireless 802.11b/g/n connectivity
  • A Mini-HDMI port which will let you project high-def content onto your big-screen TV
  • An energy-efficient Intel Atom Pineview processor designed for longer battery life
  • 1080P video resolution

More importantly for me, it has the 1366 x 768 resolution that the Samsung Slates have.

You can get it here

Those were the ones that Microsoft gave out at the BUILD conference.

Those tablets are between $1000 to $1500!

I have an Ipad 2 but I am getting this because it’s a cheap way to try out Windows 8 this February.

I’ll be using it to review the features of Windows 8 Beta on the site in February.

I’m told the price is going to go back up very soon so I would buy it as soon as you can.
