Just not quite enough.  Let me get this out there the whole surface concept I have always thought was flawed.  It’s a niche device that I don’t think has a market to support it.

I recently purchased a HP Stream 8 a big mistake I must say it is next to impossible to run a windows application on a cheap 8″ tablet an you must have incredible patience to do so!
