Thank you so much for this post. I work at a state university where we use 8 Motion LE1700's and after installing Win 8 Dev preview I was having the same 100% CPU utilization issue you described. With that resolved the tablet is incredibly fast on Win 8.

I guess you're on a pen-only system. I've just recently gotten a windows 7 tablet (the lenovo X230T convertible) and I have to say, when you're using your fingers, it's amazing. Increase the size of the caption buttons and the window padding and you're fine. That is to say, with only a pen, it doesn't work the same way - this thing has a pretty nice pen, but it doesn't work the same way the finger was. Which doesn't bother me at all, I rarely use the pen for interacting with the computer, I use it almost exclusively for handwriting etc, because I have the finger input method. I guess I can see, though, it wouldn't be too great with just a pen. Basically, with fingers, you can drag to scroll, but that doesn't work with the pen - only flicks work with the pen. And then, Internet Explorer doesn't like some...
On the other hand, it seems Windows 8 hasn't solved your problem - personally, I can't stand Windows 8, it's going way backwards - not in terms of the look, which is great, but in terms of functionality. You can't even look at more than two windows at the same time!!! Not to mention, it seems like Microsoft is locking down the Metro interface, and Windows on ARM, just like Apple locks down their iOS devices - no installing stuff on YOUR device unless approved by MICROSOFT. I'll decide what I'll run on my system, thank you very much. Seems like an operating system to skip. Windows 9 had better be an improvment on Windows 7, not on iOS, like Windows 8.
Nice, do you know anyone who's tried Windows 8 on an LE1600?
