Looking for a Vista installed Tablet PC?

We’ve got a good thread running on in the forums about OEMs shipping Vista installed Tablet PCs. Among those listed is the new Asus R1F Tablet PC.

Forum member T Lewis just let us all know that ProPortable.com has the Asus R1F with Vista Business in stock. Looks like a really sweet widescreen Tablet PC. With Asus shipping the R1F with Vista installed, maybe now they will start making Vista drivers available for the R2H UMPC.

We are in communication with ProPortable about getting an eval unit to do an InkShow, so hopefully we can bring everyone our impressions of this Core 2 Duo Vista installed Tablet PC!
