I didn't know where else to put this, so since the Surface is a MS product and will undoubtedly see plenty of Microsoft Studios games, this seems about right.
I'm waiting until the Surface Pro comes out as it is the perfect replacement for this hefty laptop I have. It's many times more powerful and many times smaller and more portable, plus it looks stunning and from the videos it's buttery smooth.
My only question really is it's power in the gaming section. I'm obviously not going to use it to play something like Guild Wars 2 or The Witcher 2, but I'm talking about older games - until what era of games do you think the Surface can handle?
In case you don't know the specs, the Surface has an Intel Ivy Bridge i5 with Intel HD Graphics 4000, 4GB RAM. I have no experience with any of the i5 processors nor Ivy Bridge nor the newest Intle HD Graphics. The computer I have has a very old Intel HD integrated card, but I've heard that the newer ones, especially the sandy bridge ones, are quite potent. Can anyone give me an idea about the types of games this beast will be able to run?
EDIT: Just to reiterate, I'm not going to be using this solely as a gaming machine - I'm a student who will find the Surface completely useful in every aspect of what I am doing, but gaming of course is always fun on the side.
