On top of that previews on endgadget and other sites seem to lean in a very positive direction for the arc. Any input would be appreciated.
If you're going to be using it for any amount of reading the Arc has the advantage of having the IPS screen that makes it readable in sunlight/bright lighting conditions. Engadget's review counts that as an advantage over most other tablets.
