Mine is order as well. They just changed the ship date from yesterday to the 21st. I was excited yesterday. I can't wait to see the screen compared to DV8P.

Tried to several times, Lenovo's site screws up and tells me my zip code is wrong.  it's not.  Zero customer support, looks like Im coughing up the extra $50 to get it on Amazon.  Are there any other covers for this?  I want a folio, I dont like the smart cover.

That's only one part of it. Apps/OS can/are optimized for 64 Bit extensions (x86_64). Extra security features are enabled in 64 bit Windows 8. If the processor doesn't support them, you're forced to use 32 bit.
While 32 bit is mostly fully encompassing for end users, as an enthusiast, I feel the lack of the full use of the processor would be on my mind.

IIRC Intel's smart connect technology is only supported on 32-bit Windows, which is why most tablet manufacturers opt for them since it is most useful in tablets. But I can't seem find where I read about that.

Bay trail is a 64bit SoC, but I believe Microsoft did not have 64bit windows 8 ready with some features that tablets needed. Possibly the always on standby.

The one I heard was missing drivers. Technically you can update but supposedly you lose free office, others than what's pointed out above with 2gb ram there's not much point disappointing really.

What? The Surface Pro runs 64-bit Windows 8.x, so not sure what isn't ready. Standby has worked fine for me since 9 Feb 2013.

With a full hd display you can go into settings display and set it to smaller and get 3 apps side by side.

I like this device very much. Just don't fancy the big logo in the top right corner though... I'm curious what the price will be here in the Netherlands. This would be the perfect tablet-on-the-go as my second device. I have a Surface RT but 8" is much more mobile :)

Ordered mine from Lenovo on the one day the price was $379. I snagged the tablet and cover for less than $400 including tax. (used 10% off coupon for first time customers)... Very lucky. Excited to get mine soon. Coming from a first generation Surface RT, this should be a huge upgrade.

I know this tablet has HDMI but I want to know how good is Miracast in these devices. Is it good to watch Netflix and play games?

Miracast works very well on DV8P. I use it all the time. The only thing is the resolution doesn't fill the whole screen with the DV8P. I will test the LTP8 when it arrives. The higher resolution should take care of that problem.

Detailed specs have the proc listed as an Apple A4. Whoops!

Has anyone who has purchased both the Lenovo and the Venu 8 Pro noticed a significant advantage in performance? I was hopeful that the memory would get bumped to 4GB (one of the prelim reviews said the Lenovo would be available with 64 bit memory addressing up to 8GB, so I'm sad not to see any larger memory options). The screen seems incredible on this thing, but I'm wondering what the hit is for the additional pixels.

Better resolution than the Dell and 16:10 vs 16.9. The covers for the Dell are all kinda bulky as well. The Lenovo cover looks really nice.

Could I plug in a wireless pointer in the USB slot if I get a micro USB -> USB adapter? This looks great for presentations if so.

Anyone know if there are other covers for this?  I dont like the smart cover, I want a folio.  Will a Dell venue 8 case fit this?  I know the thinkpad 8 is bigger

I ordered this on February 14 from Lenovo.com and they keep pushing the ship date back a week everytime I check the status.  They now have this not arriving until March 12!!!  Does anybody even have this tablet yet?  Lenovo advertised this as "available" all the way back in January!  What gives?

Got lenovo Miix 2... Nice one.. removed McAfee right out of the box, processor killer. using CPU around 40% always. If need virus protection use AVAST.
