Windows "Asus has a trio of Windows 8 tablets on deck for the holidays, but the pricing is so high - $599 to $1299 for a hybrid - that it's going to be nearly impossible to compete in the marketplace. We were leaked Asus' holiday roadmap and the slide below tells the tale." If this is for real, Windows 8 is screwed in the tablet space. Nobody is going to buy a Windows tablet at prices higher than the iPad.

Full office, skydrive, SharePoint etc.

I think I remember reading that the full Microsoft Office suite will be ported to Windows 8 RT. As for everything else, will it really be available? I didn't even think there was a version of Outlook available for Windows RT, but maybe I'm just confusing that with no Metro version...

Please forgive me if I'm wrong. I haven't really been following the development of Windows 8.

Yes, if Microsoft can get Windows 8 RT versions of all of their big business software applications working well then it has the potential to be quite usful in businesses.
