    1GB is more than enough for tablet usage, if you want a powerbook, buy one.

    The first V8P 3000 looks pretty much the same as last model, the M cored one on the other hand doesn't look that amazing for the steep price they are asking.

    I'll end with the Android tablet: pfffft.

    What exactly is the selling point on this * new * pro 8? Longer battery time?

    Yeah I'm not sure how they figure their pricing. I'd rather get HP's Stream 8 that has basically identical specs but a free 200MB of cellular data every month and it's $50 cheaper. I guess the Dell tablet nets you the ability to use a stylus, but you have to pay extra for it and from what I hear, they're pretty terrible.

    So the new 7000 series is basically the same as last year's model, and the year before THAT's model..except for the high res screen..except it costs twice as much. Meanwhile, LG has the same thing for $200 or less.

    Running Windows 8.1 it is? Not being a smart-alec, just don't personally know and always hear 2gb is the minimum you should have.

    I'd been running W8.1 on a netbook with 1gb of ram, and it's enough. It runs faster than 7.
