The only reason to want Windows on a tablet, over Android or iOS, is for the familiar desktop, and the flexibility of installing whatever you damn well please.

We had such Windows tablets for quite some time. They... didn't really took of.

And nearby you write...
If they understand that you can't watch a foreign movie without subtitles, unless you know the language, I'm sure they can grasp that the CPU is different.

Yeah, and making out of that difference the main issue, main cause of avoidance; they can just not buy it - there were (too many) examples of people avoiding even AMD due to "different CPU"...
(really, even "obvious" OS differences were often enough to return unwanted in the end purchases; MS maintaining the same trademark for this product, Windows, will quite possibly prove unfortunate)
