Why Intel?

Are you sure that Intel CPU is the perfect choice for tablets? As the exact CPU type is not disclosed yet, and as one can judge indirectly, this appears to be one of the Atom 2x00 series - quite battery-hungry as compared to ARMs. Coupled with a relatively small battrery (4300 mAh vs the nearest competitors' 6000 thru 7500 mAh), this will bind the user to a power socket pretty soon. (Especially after the battery degrades in a few monts of usage - and it is not replaceable!) Modern ARM CPUs do have sufficient power not only for tablets but even for netbooks.
