  • Desktop on Windows RT makes sense

    Windows on ARMFriday, October 26, Microsoft released its highly anticipated Surface RT tablets to the masses. I was able to snag one of these devices and spent most of my weekend in the web browser reading reviews that questioned Microsoft's so-called "curious inclusion" of the desktop.

You'll invariably find someone saying, "That's nice, but can't it run Windows 8?" It's a perfectly sane request: sure, a tablet and optional keyboard dock make for a convenient setup, but how great would it be if you could use that keyboard to get work done in Microsoft Office?

  • Asus Vivo Tab RT review

    Windows on ARMWhen I reviewed the Asus Transformer Pad Infinity, one of the best Android tablets available, I ended with this: "If you want one device that's both a tablet and a laptop, I'd wait a few weeks to see what Windows 8 has in store."

Since the tablets are not restricted to either AMD or Intel CPUs, the product supply chain for these tablets will be more competitive and should offer lower priced consumer tablets.
