What Tech Radar say…

“It boasts a distinctive design, enjoys a 10.6-inch widescreen display, and runs Windows 8, the most popular operating system on the planet. But there’s a crippling caveat which might be its undoing… Windows RT won’t run old PC programs, so any trip to the internet to download legacy programs such as VLC Player, or even big-name offerings like Photoshop Elements, just won’t work.”
