Default Windows 8 Tablets to be made of Sugar and Spice or Something Nice

<div class='os_post_top_link'><a href='http://news.cnet.com/8301-13924_3-57413493-64/intels-windows-8-tablet-checklist-goes-public/' target='_blank'>http://news.cnet.com/8301-13924_3-5...st-goes-public/</a><br /><br /></div><p><em>"Intel is offering more specifics on the features of future Windows 8 tablet at a conference in Beijing. It's a laudable goal, but can Intel make it happen this year? Underneath the glass will be beat an Atom Z2760 "Clover Trail" chip: dual-core capable with "burst mode" (for quick bursts of performance when needed) and Hyperthreading -- the latter allows a dual-core chip to behave in quad-core-like fashion in some cases."</em></p><p><img src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/lpt/auto/1334344331.usr20447.jpg" style="border: 1px solid #d2d2bb;" /></p><p>If you are like me, you often sit under a tree on a great sunny day thinking, "I wonder what sort of specifications Windows 8 tablets will have!"&nbsp; Well, wait no longer, because Intel has published its specs on what things should be like.&nbsp; Some of the requirements are interesting, though I do wonder how many of them will make it into reality, and how many will find themselves quickly changed, like what happened to Ultrabooks.&nbsp; Of course, all these are on paper, and the real sauce will be what the actual experience will be like using a Windows 8 tablet.&nbsp; For that, I remain skeptical.</p>
