Win8 may be far preferable for tablet/slates, but likely hasn't been validated yet for running the software he has in mind, and that's not something you just shrug off. Of course you can wipe it and install Win7, though there's a chance drivers will be a problematic. And if he's shopping right now, the whole thing is moot anyway. But if we're looking ahead, I expect this niche will have a much bigger population a year from now.Voldenuit wrote:It's low on RAM, and has Win 8 instead of Win 7, but sounds like a very interesting device. x86 and Win 8 Pro, so will run existing windows and x86 programs as well as metro apps.
