    This has been an on-again off-again rumor for some time now. Need to get beyond the rumor stage. But I wouldn't be surprised and I know a lot of people on this forum who would love to see it.

    This rumor seems undecided between Surface Pro Mini and Surface Mini given it quoted using a Snapdragon SoC. 1gb ram, it would not be a Pro but wit those specs it would be a mini alright.

    If they go 10.1 and 3:2 .666 or 16:10 .625 aspect ratio (I hope were done with 16:9 .5625) then they better stuff more in the bag like a Snapdragon 810 or Tegra X1 and at least 2gb ram but 4 would be preferred.

    What ever they do I hope they don't under spec compared to the competition. You got to kick their butt and take their name err customers. :)

    If it is under 10" and if the rumors are true which I believe they are, it won't matter if Intel ATOM or ARM both will run a desktopless Mobile SKU... so my guess is they will go with ARM....

    I have the HP Stream 7 and it's pretty nice. If a Surface Mini at 8" comes out, I'll be the first in line at the MS Store.
