    I can do exactly with my current tablet, with either version of Windows. For people who do not need/want the apps, how they work is irrelevant. Battery power with the Surface Pro will be no different to that of most tablets running Atom or iX processors and may well be worse than many notebooks/laptops because of battery size limitations. Running apps will not save on battery power, as it's the processor, graphics etc that consumes the power.
    I wouldn't be so sure about the battery life example, Windows 8 was designed with extended battery life in mind right from the start, why do you think they stripped out all the PC stuff.

    No way on earth can a Windows 7 tablet compete with Windows 8 in this category and despite your efforts to prove the contrary this fact won't be changing anytime soon.

    Just curious chev65, what "PC stuff" did they strip out of Win8? I know Windows RT is stripped down, but was under the impression Win8 is full Windows.

    Yes, please enlighten us as to how the Windows 7 OS was stripped in order to create Windows 8.

    Also, I wasn't suggesting that a Windows 7 tablet would be the same as a Windows 8 tablet. However, in a desktop environment, a Windows 7 tablet can perform just as well as a Windows 8 tablet, maybe better, as it is a full desktop environment that doesn't require third party add-ons.
