Can I still use a consumer preview version of Windows 8 on my new-old tablet PC?

I just bought a refurbished Fujitsu LifeBook PC Tablet T5010
with Vista currently installed, and while I'm not 100% sure it can use finger touches, I'd like to see how it runs with Win8, especially if I can demo it before buying a copy. The consumer preview will expire in Jan. 2013
, but can I still do a fresh install of it? While the links to Microsoft's official download pages now direct you to buy Win8, I imagine there are copies of the consumer floating around, but I wanted to save myself the trouble if it wouldn't work.
