    Well all the i5 are not born the same. it's a mobile i5 of 1.7 ghz nothing to compare to a i5-3770k of 3.4 ghz, this of course is not something Microsoft include in the spec; witch i5 it is.


    look at the position 167th

    You're comparing a tablet PC with an i5 versus a desktop PC with an i7? Really?

    I get the bench I can find, look at the link I give, it's behind a lot of dual core

    What is important is the peoples know that it will not perform like a desktop i5, Microsoft specify nothing, that may lead peoples to think they gone have more than expected.

    Most people aren't concerned with those details. As long as it's fast and efficient, that's great.

    Well I purchase 2 x Windows 8 + a Surface. From your Avatar, you don't even purchase a Windows 8. So let's say I'm not a perfectly happy customers, but I'm one, when expire yourCP
    Well I do have two Windows 8 licences and will be buying a third, seeing as how Windows 8 is faster at just about everything, I don't see any reason not too. I certainly don't miss the start menu or close button, I hardly ever used them anyway. The start menu should have gone years ago, absolutely useless to people with a lot of programmes.
