Archos 9 Tablet Features Windows for Those Wanting a PC Tablet

The people at Archos make some pretty sweet hardware.  I've been a fan of theirs since they began to compete with hard drive based iPods in the early part of the 2000's.  Now the smart people at Archos have come up with a tablet device that will actually run Windows.
The Archos 9 features 32GB SSD (solid state hard drive with no "hard drive" moving parts), a built-in webcam, WiFi, stereo speakers, microphone, USB port, and Bluetooth.
It provides a "real" Windows 7 experience and gets 5 hours of battery life from a single charge.  It also comes with a spare battery so you are not limited by the 5 hours.  It will connect to peripherals like cameras and printers via USB and has a 1080p output that can be connected to other video outputs.
Combine that with the $499 price tag and this is a pretty nice Windows machine.
