Is this due to CPU being throttled or WiFi being throttled when not plugged in? I first thought it was WiFi throttling, but I'm currently using the SP3 at my parent's house where they only have a 2Mbps DSL connection and RDP is fine when plugged in. At home I have a 25Mbps connection and the RDP is really choppy/slow for simple desktop browsing and sending email when not plugged in. It seems like MSFT throttles the CPU down to the point where I can't use RDP. Anyone have similar results? My 5 year old Dell laptop handles RDP better than this device which is sad.
