    Is there one with a decent battery life?

    I honestly would prefer a tablet that ran windows, has at least a 10 hour battery, decent screen, able to dual boot an android operating system, and can dock with a keyboard... If the Transformer could run Windows, I would be a happy camper... I cant find anything like this. Was looking at the viewsonic one, but its battery life is only 4 hours...

    There is the Tegatech Tablet but I do not know if its out yet here in the states but it comes with Android 2.1. Which is a bummer if true.

    Supposedly, Viewsonic is making a dual boot in their Viewpad 10Pro tablet. Looks promising, more info here.

    Both Azpen and Gigabyte are said to offer dual boot tablets by years end. Curious myself to see what Gigabyte does. I use their products in my pcs. A friend of mine that works for Gigabyte pointed me to this article a while back and I am left to wonder if that is what Gigabyte will be using.

    But a dual boot tablet with a keyboard dock hmmm that might be by years end or later.

    Thinkpad x220t - It's a convertible ultraportable notebook/tablet which runs Windows 7. Its capacitive multitouch and has a wacom pressure sensitive digitizer pen. With the 6 cell battery I get roughly 7-8 hours of battery. There is an additional slice battery you can add to get about 12-14 hours.

    It's heavier than an Android tablet and much more expensive. But I'm happy with it for those times I need more computing power than my NI Adam.

    I like that one, its just 3x more than I wanted to spend... Plus I want the screen to detach... am I asking too much?

    The screen detaches just fine if you drop it far enough!

    But I think we're at least a year away before we see a good screen, long battery life, commodity tablet that can run Windows. I was actually really surprised with how well Windows 7 tablet support works - but of course it needs lots of CPU to do its thing.

    I purchased my wife a netbook and it has a 10 hour battery life while running windows starter 7. The only downside was that windows starter was so stripped down it was ridiculous. They took out windows shortcuts and left functionality, so you had to use backdoor routes to modify things like your desktop.

    Have a look here. They actually have tablets (if you can say that) with i7 processors.

    Note: my company was looking to buy some of these for our drivers. I work in the transportation industry.
