I really like Windows 8 and like the idea of the surface or slate computing when there's a keyboard dock included, can't understand just having a tablet once they're a bit more voice activated them maybe, but I've tried them and feel they still need more input than just a screen, so that makes the Samsung XE500 ATIV Smart PC (with Keyboard Dock) a great option and now it's on sale from GoGadgets that's fantastic:
