Surface Pro Vs Laptop


Well-Known Member
It might well be full windows 8, core i5 but that doesn't mean it's powerful enough for heavy programs. The core i5 that comes with the SP is a mobile version which doesn't clock higher than say 2.2 GHZ and the integrated Intel hd 4000 graphics is nowhere near enough powerful for gaming or even heavy video editing for gaming. Just saying..

I run mine at 2.55 Ghz all the time with a little software help. Regardless, the OP said he had heard the SP is for "lite usage only" and also said he had done research prior to asking his question. My point was that more than likely, he hadn't done any research at all because no one claims the Surface Pro is for "lite usage only".
