Re: Vista memories
I think this is a wise move on HP's part. 8.1 Tablets are great, but as others have said, it's not what they want on a PC. Microsoft may not completely realize it yet, but they have a rebellion on their hands, and this time there are alternatives available for Windows. If Microsoft wants to really push 8.1, one way would be to make the cheapest Surface they can, and then sell it at a loss. Then, as users scarf 'em up, they might well fall in love with 8.1, and move their PC buys to that OS. And again, I don't think it's fair to compare 8.1 to Vista, because 8.1 is strong and stable, and Vista never was.
