Actually it is the latest generation Atom, not last generation, stupid article. That actually is worth using.

Including the desktop mode on this is mostly pointless but whatever.

Sounds decent, but it weighs 1 pound for an 8 inch tablet. What a porker.

Microsoft's 'Surface Mini" is coming out soon and will be around the same size I hope that it uses the Nexus 7's screen which has a higher resolution then then this Tablet's small screen.
the small Windows 8.1 Tablets absolutely need high resolution screens so a person can read
and edit word documents easier than you would on this tablet. still this Windows 8.1 Tablet does one really good thing. "It's affordable" allowing people to get their hands on a windows 8 tablet and more apps are being added to the windows 8 modern UI/AKA metro tiles store.
