    Wacom support means it should be a good tablet for artists

    now if this just had 4GB of ram it would be perfect....

    Even a bad wacom stylus is better than those on the dell venue pro (which I was considering until I heard about this) so this has a plus before it even starts lol

    great value and judging by the codenames this is the lowest model, so the others should be even better, these are full windows right? not RT?

    2GB of ram is kinda limiting though

    More would be nice, but you aren't likely to be running anything big on a 8" slate, so I would say it's adequate, especially if the storage is fast enough to andle paging smoothly. Using a company issue netbook with a slow hard drive and 2GB. Works well enough for more than I would use a 8" device for.

    God, why won't someone make something of the same overall quality as the new ipad mini that runs Windows 8.1!?

    That's a different size, pricier and vastly more powerful. A quality Atom powered 8" tablet should be possible at £319-659 (iPad Mini price range), the stretch in the budget is a Windows licence, Apple are probably paying a little less for the SoC manufacture also, it's in-house design and less complex than an Atom.

    A Windows tablet would be far more flexible so I'd happily pay a premium over comparable spec Android or iOS... just waiting for the right one, 8-9" 1440*900 or better, GPS, LTE, stylus, 64GB with SD slot, lightweight keyboard dock. Perfect replacement for my aging Dell netbook/mini.

    Can't see samsung being very happy about the name!
    They already have a Note 8, which obviously comes with a stylus too.

    I know they'd not be the easiest to mix up but still strikes me as odd.
