We need more ram everywhere, not just tablets.
Having just taken my third acer 18.4 inch machine in a row (with no faults except the ubiquitous windows seven irq problem causing high cpu from an invisible process,) this one is a monster. Twin 640GB drives, and at 16GB ram, windows 7 just loads all the files you ever need. It's a Core i7, quad core, and is effectively a server.
As a result, after you've opened everything once, it's just all in ram. It opens all of, Photoshop, SQL management studio, VS2010, excel, word, outlook, notepad, ie8, all at once, in under a second.
I don't deny the first time you start it up it takes a minute to get them all open, but I never start it up any more, I just sleep it.
There are only two things I could improve it on.
Firstly, more ram, enough to cache c:\windows, c:\programfiles, c:\users and whole of the current disc in the blu ray player (which it would read and cache on insertion.) I know i7 only goes to 24GByte, but I'd pay for 64 if it could.
Secondly I'd only consider going desktop again, if someone like highpoint, made a similar card to their brand new hybrid card thingy, whereby you could use ram (up to say half a terabyte,) as a buffer instead of the ssd and it auto cached, and loaded at startup, through a custom disk file allowing custom flushed or cached writes, and you could put the page file on it.
Good use of large amounts of ram solves everything as far as I can see.
