Instead of a low power PC with full windows functionality, we're being offered $400 - $600 4G internet browsing devices that will require either a monthly subscription or the purchase of many apps to get reasonable functionality.

I want something I can slap W7 onto.
That is exactly what I want as well. Not only that but if a good one came along that was Win7 then I could probably sell at least 5 or 6 right away here at work. There are a few profs already that have the traditional tablets and they work good but are just too big.
