Today most People are considering buying the Intel x86 or AMD x86 CPU windows 8 controlled Tablets because they will run thousands upon thousands of Windows legacy programs and current Windows 7 desktop and Laptop programs. the PC Gamer community are ready to play thousands of PC games on them the Windows 8 Intel x86 tablet computers are already PC Gamers defacto tablet of choice to play PC games on. The Business Enterprise is begging for a good x86 Tablet People want to know what an ARMS CPU controlled Windows RT can do for them. Right now they have info that there are not enough APPs right now that will be available to the Windows RT Tablet because it is incapable of running x86 Legacy Programs like the Intel x86 Windows 8 Tablets can right out of the box. Microsoft has to show Folks very compelling reasons to consider buying Windows RT Tablets
