does anybody think this might be a better option? it comes out 11/6/2012 and is 799 for a full Windows 8 with Intel i3 with 4 GB of RAM and 64GB Storage
Newegg.com - Acer Iconia Tab W Series W700-6607 Tablet PC 3rd Generation Intel Core i3-3217U 1.80GHz 11.6" Full HD 4GB DDR3 Memory 64GB SSD Intel HD Graphics 4000
let me know what you guys think is it a better option than the RT?
now it doesn't say it includes a keyboard which probably doesnt, so I figured I ask everybody whats their take considering this will come out before christmas time and before Surface Pro at a good price compare to the current price of 699 for the RT with Keyboard.

Wow, that is a nice tablet but I'd go with the i5 processor. There's also a 128gb hard drive option, nice. The only problem is the Acer name. I haven't had great luck with them but things do change. One question, I thought pro tablets weren't coming out until later? Maybe it was just the Surface brand.

Watch those links in post #3. Both first and second links go to a 64gb i3 version, the last one does link to a 128gb i5 1.7ghz version though.
Awesome that it includes a dock and KB though the dock is horribly designed style wise.

FWIW, it is a bit larger than I would like. Unlike a RT tablet, it will probably also get a bit warm at times. I also never believe battery life estimates from Acer or Asus. Everybody exaggerates but some do so more than others. Keep in mind that, unlike any RT tablet that comes out, the Windows 8 tablets are not instant on and will go into disconnected sleep/hibernate mode to preserve battery life.

I wish I didn't have such bad luck with acer products. I've bought two laptops and one tablet. They all broke with in 24 hours of purchase, so no more Acer products for me. If Asus is around the same price I would buy that.
It looks like Best Buy is selling the Lenovo Yoga 13 for $999 now:
