    I was just on my way to say exactly the same thing. Assuming this is an evolutionary product rather than a revolutionary one, a hardware alt-ctrl-del button would make perfect sense.

    What it really needs, though, is at least stylus input. There's plenty of stuff I'm sure you can do with just finger prods, but windows really benefits from the additional accuracy of a stylus or pen.

    That said, how clumsy must the user be to miss clicks on a 9" slate? I rarely miss on my 3.2" HTC Magic...

    Apparently it does come with a stylus, and the poster will show video of it at some point.

    In terms of the CAD key, I think it's just sensible. As well as being handy for enterprise users who need to log on, what happens if it decides to lock up a bit and you can't pull up the soft keyboard? Hit the CAD button and you can shut that pesky process down. Easy.
