  1. With virtually no competition on the performance front when it comes to traditional computers, but much to be gained in the mobile space, Intel has been increasingly focusing on power efficiency. Haswell has already gone a long way improving battery...

    Reading where the source is on this subject is the cost of the Intel going to be too high where the present ARM are cheaper officer Dual/Quad core for less. Intel chips are not cheap. Intel Atom is faster than any of the current ARM though.

    Surface RT 1.3/1.4GHz ARM Quad Core 2G limit on RAM, Surface 32-bit Pro Dual core 700MHz/1.5/1.8GHz (turbo mode) 2GB Limit on RAM and Surface 64-bit Pro i5 1.7GHz Dual core 4G. are not cheap tablets.

    Yeah. You practically need a power station to drive it.

    It is great for low-end ultrabooks that otherwise use hungrier Intel chips, but still too much for tablets that are used to ARM chips.

    4.5W SDP is like 8W of TDP. Clever trick from intel. Many will be fooled by this SDP rating instead of more realistic TDP.

    I can see exploding tablets already. LOL Browsing internet - everything is fine. Watching BR movie and everything melts. 4.5W SDP - too much for tablet.
