If it is 8 inch Full HD screen and Windows 8 NOT RT not ARM, I'll buy it immediately, but the news I heard for Surface mini is RT.
I hope its a quad core Intel Atom but ur right, rumors say its RT.

I bought mine new $818 with touch cover at the promo before the stock is sold out. That is the best available deal. Hopefully surface pro 2 will come but I think they are preparing for surface pro3.

I think you can forget it the whole point here is by the time u want SP 3 arrived here, one
word I can say you going to wait long long ...some how MS have tendency of release this
products here late sg. My advice go for other brands further more the price SP 3 won't be
cheap too..

"Microsoft could be preparing to launch a Surface mini with Windows RT and a Surface mini Pro model with a full version of Windows 8. Microsoft may even be considering an entirely new Intel-based Surface model."

A good alternative will be the thinkpad tablets. X230t or is it 240 now.

If they launched sp2 pro in sg when it first came out in us, nobody would buy it because it'll cause a bomb when sold in sg. Who'd buy a tablet when it costs the same as a ultrabook?

cos ultimately, it's an i5 laptop which can double up as a tablet.

ultrabooks are not tablets unless yr referring to yoga 11s and the likes.

i believe those are around the same price too.

imo, windows 8 should not be on anything less than i5. its just too slow.

RT is ok but the app store just cannot take off no matter how hard MS tries.

so for now, it's full win 8 or nothing.

You dun need an i5. You just need a Solid State.

Atom n solid state will still be slower than i5 n solid state.
