I see not one thing that says this is an x86. If it's not x86 it's still ARM and still windows RT even if they don't call it RT anymore. The result being you can only run software from the windows store, no legacy apps.

Its a 14nm Cherry Trail SoC. Don't confuse this with old crappy Atom. These are really fast. This is http://www.anandtech.com/show/...

Sorry but bluray sucks. Sony sucks. Most people are happy with DVD quality and see no reason to buy bluray disks. Also the fact that 99% of bluray disks have previews that cannot be skipped or fast forwarded through makes them NOT the media of choice! The only way that bluray disks sell at all is that these days you have to buy the bluray disk packaged with the DVD disk to get the DVD disk much of the time.

Sorry but DVD sucks. Most people are happy with VHS quality and see no reason to buy DVD disks.

Windows 7 Media Center rocks. Highly recommended. Plus it supports premium cable via cable card. Comcastic douche in my area even give a $2 refund for not using their crappy STB. The only thing I lose is VOD, but I don't give a shit since Netflix and Amazon Prime via Roku is 10 times better than their comcastic service
