quote: Can you imagine if this was running Windows 8? *drool.....*
quote: Unfortunately yes ...puke...This thing will tank like all the rest.
quote: It will take over, because it will run Windows apps. Not only all the apps we've been using for years, but the enterprise apps that are used at work. It will make the tablet a useful device in the office
quote: ARM tablets running Win8 ARM will NOT, repeat NOT run any apps from the x86 world. Microsoft is developing office for arm, but don't think for a moment Win8 ARM = Win8 for x86-64.
quote: Of course you will be able to recompile x86 apps to run on ARM. That's just common sense.
quote: Tablets that weren't that thin were present for a decade, and they failed.
quote: Ivy Bridge is great but its TDP is still too high for something that slim.
quote: I think you need to study up on CPU design and realize what a quantum leap Ivy Bridge will be at the architectural level. ARM's days are numbered. Period.
quote: x86 may supersede ARM in tablets eventually, but it won't be for years.
quote: Dude the bulkiest tablet on the market, HP Touchpad, flew off the shelves at such a rate that HP is going to manufacture more to meet demand.
quote: Did you see me say it would happen next week?
quote: You X86 haters are just going to have to deal with that.
quote: The Metro UI will be the only interface for ARM based "PC's"
quote: the only people to whom it's familiar are Windows Phone 7 users
quote: This thing will tank like all the rest.
quote: Engadget is Apple's bitch.
quote: Amazon is the only company aside from Apple that's going to be selling tablets in any significant quantity.
quote: or they will get sued by Apple who patented these things years after their invention in university research labs
