The Gigabyte S1082 is great for somebody who is looking for something like Viewpad 97i but with windows 8 pre-loaded. Also, if you want to be one of the first to own a tablet running Windows 8 and want more functionality than the Microsoft Surface RT and ATIV Tab, then there are not many choices out there.
