Windows 8 (not RT) on Atom Processor in a Tablet form factor really bridged
the gap between a full fixed Desk bound Desktop OS and a portable
Android/Apple tablet OS by being able to runs any X86 apps with reasonable
power, battery life and portability. It's a well balance combination of
both world.

Just saw in MS store the Asus 10" tab (Win 8 NOT RT) with Atom 2G/64G AND
comes with Office for $399. For those who want smaller formfactror- they
had Acer 8 inch, same specs for same price. They claim 100K apps in MS
store, and if Android emulation software works half-way decent- well that's
a pretty awesome combo for those wanting tablet.

I'm sure that might be a good solution for many, but the last thing I would
do is store anything on a cloud. I can't even imagine the time it would
take to download and upload video onto the cloud. Plus, you might also have
data streaming limits or charges.

That is the issue, that is 1 "basic" use case. I want something I can work
on, on the go, without a mouse and without a touch pad. Put a decent small
graphics card in a tablet, give me a 1 TB hard drive, and now I got
something that can run Blender, or 3ds Max or Poser, as well as my mocap
system. I'd buy that for $799.

Soon afterwards, the race between the 2 OS begins with major device
manufacturer joining in the 'War'. Over these few short years Google's
Android really improve in quantum leaps and give Apple user a run for their
money (Although fanboy dare to differ). Among these 2, Miscrosoft slowly
creep in with its Window's Metro UI that is now commonly known as Windows

I think the first Atom processor was out way before Android (before Google
accquire it) & Apple's IOS. Back then it was used mainly in NETBOOKS, a
device platform that was meant to fill the gap between a desktop and a
laptop. It had it's years of success which saw some iconic device that
shape the history of gadgets in those days. It's main advantage as pointed
out by Eli is it's long battery life although the lack of computing power
but was a major leap that shape the world of mobile computing.

Intel Atom is not good.Because I had a notebook with intel atom
processor.It ran windows 7 very very slow.But however the laptop is now

To me, Windows 8 is Miscrosoft's answer and successor to it's previously
well known WIN CE (It's competitor Palm OS and Symbian in those era), it's
own Portable version of Windows on mobile devices (02 XDA, Smart Phone &
PDA) of the late 90s and early 2000s. i have to say this are entirely
personal preference but to me i feel that Windows 8 (Not the RT version) on
an Atom Processor is the 'Real' bridging gap between a Laptop and a

Personally, I don't understand the whole small disk space thing going on
with tablets. Without a big hard drive, which are super cheap, I have no
use for a tablet. I always feel like the industry most forward before the
hardware does, or they just don't think people need that hardware for these
new devices. Oh, and wow, those prices are high for tablets. I'll stay away
from tablets until they can do more and come with big hard drives.

Good day Sir, please I need your advice on making a decision for buying a
new laptop. I wanna know if it will be ok for me to buy an i5 ultra book
laptop with Window 8 for my Masters Degree in Network Security. Does window
8 or 7 have any limitation over my school or office work as a Network
Engineer, I meant installation of software, etc Do u have any ultra book
laptop in mind for me or do I go for Hp Specter Envy 14 with window 7.
Thanks for your support

NETBOOK era lost its shine pretty quick & what lurks behind are Android at
its very own infancy stage. The very first few Android devices are make by
some lesser known brand & if you ever own one back then you'll witness how
un-polish it was on a Resistive touchscreen. It stay this way for a few
more years until APPLE come into the picture to change everything. Apple
introduced mobile user to a whole new world of touch screen on a Capacitive
screen and user of Resistive Touchscrn was sold immed.

That was also around that time when Google announced that t will fully
acquire Android. That was when things started to get interesting. User of
Apple's IOS eco system soon learnt that Apple had created a sandbox user
experience for them in iTune's world and IOS and soon craved for more user
customization... that is when a more polished version of Google's Android
steps into the picture. It offer user never before customization compare to
IOS and to user like me is a God send.
