I don't give a stuff about the specs. I just want a raspberrypi that runs Windows...any Windows... That will make it ten times better as an educational tool, with more programming languages and IDEs than the upcomming RPI has (including the best ones...java, c#, visual studio). Adding to this, windows is what gamers use, and that's a good area for people to start hacking in.
Well, you can't have one now, and there are two hopes of getting it - Bob and No.
So I am afraid you will have to look elsewhere. Quite a few nice Notebooks that would just about do what you want. Start around $200 I guess, but to be honest what you really want a a sensibly powered quad core desktop with about 4GB of RAM for that feature set. Most PC manufacturers make them, they are called PC's. I've got one, cost about $400 without the display. Although I do run Linux on it.
Oh, and there are more languages available for Linux than for Windows, and most of them are free unlike the ones on Windows.
