    Still the main issue with Intel tablets is the fact they need cooling assistance from a fan which normally ends up adding to the thickness and weight of the device. This is always a bad thing as more thickness does allow beefier components but its still a league behind light weight slim line tablets which many consumers current want.
     
  4. I'm sure you missed the part about this being an, "Intel Clover Trail SoC". A.K.A. No fan. This is not an i3, i5 or an i7 mobile processor, it's an SoC! Come now, it's OK to admit that you were wrong :)
     
  5. Do you have a source for that claim. The last time I saw an Intel based tablet it did not have any active cooling.

    Im hoping to get myself at least an i3 tablet. reason is none of atom-based PC I've used before offer reasonable amount of speed for what I am doing. on the other hand, an i3 ultrabook easily fulfills most of my criteria and it's probably a little hotter (therefore thicker). since it's an i3, I believe the price won't be as high as i5 or i7.
