I wonder if the Bluetooth stack will allow us to use BT keyboards?

I can't use a straight keyboard (I've been using ergo keyboards for a decade now), so I hope we'll get a USB keyboard adapter...

This looks like a very nice machine, but it also looks like it's 100% consumer-oriented. There's not much function in there for content creators... we'll still be tethered to our PC's (and macs) for that.
