I think they will be just like any Win7 laptop, clunky but feature rich.
Have you looked at current netbooks?
Even this old one...

...has done fine by me. And that is with Vista instead of Win7. I got it for US$279 and it handles MS OFFICE, surfing, and pretty much everything I need in a portable. at 3lbs it is heavier than a bare tablet but once you add a keyboard most tablets aren't all that much lighter.

I know netbooks aren't cool anymore but they're cheap and they match up pretty well with the chromebooks. And the newer Atom processors are pretty powerful in their own right.
