I have an iPad but it is restrictive in many ways and I'm also not a great fan of iTunes.
At last we have a built in USB port and with the Pro version having USB3 it will allow me to continue to work on my huge music collection. I will no longer need the flimsy USB add on to plug into my iPad.
It looks as if it has a decent keyboard which sounds better than my bluetooth one I have for my iPad. Yes I would buy one but not until I see how Win 8 works which I really haven't tried as yet apart from a few hours with a Nokia phone.
