I was told that Windows 7 was built for multitouch

It has some multitouch features in it, but it's much better for systems with either a keyboard (like a convertible tablet) or pen-based systems.

It's speculated this is why HP dropped the Windows 7 based Slate and instead are working on a WebOS tablet. Windows on a touchscreen tablet without a keyboard, mouse/touchpad, or stylus is very very clunky.

Will the 12 inch have the Tegra 2 as well? Oh, and will it run Crysis?

Tegra 2 is based on an ARM CPU. The 12" models will be Intel CPUs.

Wow, finally a tablet that has a real OS instead of a cell phone OS!  Go Asus!!

I like Windows 7 OS, but its a good thing ASUS is putting a duo-core CPU on this tablet to handle W7 OS because W7 on a little Atom chip isn't worth the price. 

 If ASUS and other companies can pull off a functional and smooth Windows 7 OS tablet, I say good.  Best for everyone.  But I'm still leaning and looking at the Google Android OS tablets for now.

While I like the idea of a full OS I'm very interested in seeing if they implement a customized version of the Windows 7 GUI. Cause the standard GUI is really hard to use with a touchscreen.

Powered by Wintel? Intel?  or is that some new company?

Wintel = Windows OS + Intel CPU

The term has been around since the 80s. But it doesn't get much use anymore.
