How do you like it?

I have always been curious about these. How do the people that own it like them? How is the build quality? Does OS X work well as a touchable interface?

So there is already an Apple tablet that no one knows about J/K. I am actually surprised i was just reading about it and other then OSX it looks interesting.

You should give OS X a shot. It's a really good OS. I'm running it and Windows 7 natively with Boot Camp on my MBP but even though I run Windows 90% of the time, I still love OS X.

I've used it my ex had an old G3 and i think Ubuntu beats it hands down in customization and UI. Nothing will ever top Compiz Fuzion and i don't have or want to throw the money at anything Apple. Its not that Apple is a bad company it has its function, I'm just not a fan.

To each his own, I suppose.

I agree, its a great OS, just not for everyone. In my tooling around with it, it just reminds me of Ubuntu and what Ubuntu can do. I wouldn't one day mind owning an OSX computer when i can afford one, but for now windows and Ubuntu for me.

Oh gotcha so technically the fabled tablet already exists. The only problem i have seen with tablets is overheating. The hospital i work in had hp tablets and those dropped like flies from overheating.

No this is a legitimate OS X thing. They buy MacBooks from Apple and then just reconstruct the hardware. I think the warranty is through Axiotron but the OS X is fully licensed and legal.
