Meanwhile... in the REAL world....
Maybe ARM /RT is/will be dead.....
I am currently testing a Dell Latitude 10 tablet which Dell kindly sent me to trial.
I have over 5000 PCs over 160 sites so are operating in the real world, ok, business world :-)
I have no irrational preferences, whatever does the job at the right cost, that includes full lifecycle support..
I have to confess to being a bit confused with M$ over versions and version names . the Dell website says this Dual Core Atom is RT, but it's not it's WIndows 8 Pro.
I've just installed full office 2003 and bumped it onto the domain.
It comes with a nifty little dock with hdmi, usb, ethernet, hdmi so fits my needs as a portable but often I need a mouse requirements, Spreadsheets just don't cut it driven by sausage fingers
After reading the masses of anti 8 rhetoric I have been pleasantly surprised, I have 140 iPads deployed corporately and in schools and they do not offer the same simplicity of connection to the network and resources.
There's little in the iStore which is any good to me, logging my zumba scores, wieght, amusing fart apps , twitter linky things don't help me do my job so the population of any of the stores does not interest me.
My data is all on a large private cloud so I don't need drop(out)box, giggledrive or anywhere to lose/let anyone look at my data.
I've tried to live with an iPad3 for a while to see if it delivered my needs, it's pretty bar one critical function (to me),
the windows 8 handwriting recognition and ability to write with something more akin to a pen beats the hell out of the horrible rubbery floppy stylus effort on the iPad, it is just far .
The dell is about 3500 , that seems ok given that it integrates so well, the flip round keyboard ultrabook at £998 is entirely another story !!!!!
tuppence ha'penny worth over :-)
