was just looking at win 8 tablets and laptops. Win8 looks like a real miss. one thing I noted on the tablets.. the Surface actually has very good performance.. excellent in fact, but the other tablets and most of the laptops had HORRIBLE latency times. Most are underpowered to run Win8. That is going to equate to alot of #$%$ off consumers who buy them.
Really you need a intel i7 chip to run it right.
That said, I don't see it impacting Apple. Consumers will likely do what they did with Vista.. buy the Win8 product, wipe the hard drive and reinstall Win7 or XP, or dual boot.
