Looking for a solid windows 8 Tablet... But not sure which brand to turn to

Hello kind forum folks,

I am looking for a Windows 8 friendly tablet with a minimum of a 11.6" display. With so many of them being announced I have no clue which would be the best. I would rather like one with a stylus as I do an heck of a lot of note taking and design (workflows, use cases and process models mostly) so that may limit my selection.

I have had a love hate relationship with Fujitsu in the past and am a bit nervous about moving to the Q702 but am hard pressed to find another with an active stylus....

The kicker is that I need to get it in my hot little hands by early December

So Any help, advice, thoughts, comments would be welcome.
