  1. Awesome. I have a Thinkpad 8 and it’s a beast already. Cherry Trail + digitizer will be very, very nice. The only sort off drawback will be the very high resolution, which is kinda useless on an 8″ screen and drain more battery. 1920×1200 on an 8″ device is optimal IMO. Hope they launch a 9″ or 10″ also. I’d surely get one, once the Surface line is VERY expensive to my budget.
