Its well known that GENERALLY mobile platforms do not game, and do not handle heat well. I can't imagine anything worse than sticking an i7 in a tablet and gaming on it.... and gamers are the sort of people who would spend that money on that tablet, and these are the people that would go out and buy (or more likely build!) a desktop for that. How do I know? I am that user.
As for touch being the future, again I disagree, on a gaming platform, the keyboard and mouse aren't going anywhere. You just can't get the same level of control with touch, plus reaching for my desktop (or even laptop!) screen every couple of minutes is going to get my arms tired very quickly.
So that means we don't get a say? Because we are in the minority, does our opinion not count?Yeah, because you're a Desktop user. That's where the main complaints are coming from.
Its not like MS are saying "Hey here is our new OS for touch systems, but don't worry it still works just as well for desktop users." Well actually, that is what they are saying, but patently it isn't true.
