Windows 8 on a Samsung Core i5 Tablet

At the BUILD Conference today, Microsoft showed a much more comprehensive preview of the upcoming Windows 8 OS along with some tablet prototypes, including this 11.6″ Core i5 Slate from Samsung.

Microsoft also showed three other tablets running on various chipset — an Intel Atom processor, a TI OMAP4430 and the quad-core NVIDIA Tegra 3 Kal El chipset.

    I’ve installed all my usual work apps and essential toos. it works great and I havent encountered any issues. The install was 15 minutes flat! If I dont see any issues in the next 2 weeks, I’m loading it on my x61 tablet. I’ll let you know how it turns out but if someboady has already done so, share naman ng tips!

    Just installed it.. It put all my current programs to Windows.old folder. Gonna reinstall nanaman. Anyways, it looks good, all your programs are now called apps. Smooth switching modes. I still need to explore since I’ll use this lappy for presentation.. >.<
