    No, I called this hi-tech brick with Metro UI :D
  4. Yawn.. I'd rather have an AMD A10 APU in there.
  5. I would rather have it loaded with Android and for $500 less to boot.

    That is so not worth $800. Some Windows 8 experience /w a core i3. The parts may actually be worth close to that but I dont perceive the experience to be anything better than $500.

If you're talking CPU then no, you're smoking your socks and quite heavily at that (you should cut back on that, its bad for your health), if you're talking GPU then you are only marveling at a company that had to buy another company to stay relevant. Thats not an AMD GPU, it's an ATI built from ATI experience by personel that stayed on with the company just under the name AMD now.

    ofc he was talking about gaming. and what do people do on tablets? most use them for games ^_^
    and it is an AMD product. how many years/generations have passed since they bought ATI?
