Re: About as fast as an Atom

Photoshop is a relatively high-end use case. If you're spending £50 a month on a CC subscription you're probably not bothered about splashing out for a high-end i5 or i7, and you're probably not the target market for this.

I expect this is aimed squarely at the high volume "back room terminal which runs Office + Edge + Web apps" type workload, and if it's Microsoft apps then it's all going to get recompiled to real native code anyway (and browser includes the JIT for scripting, so nicely platform agnostic). For a lot of use cases a low-cost all-in-one or Mac mini-like form-factor would make a huge amount of sense.
