I agree with this .. there is no tablet that I know of that will run
CentOS-6 ... not even the ultrabook with touch screens will work well
with that.  At least not the touch functionality.

However, the Lenovo Thinkpad Yoga-2 series and the Helix series both
work well with Fedora-19 including some touch functionality  ... so
those should also work with the upcoming CentOS-7 (or RHEL-7).
