Windows Well, this can't be a good sign. Samsung has told CNET that the company will not be launching its Windows RT tablet in the United States, citing a lack of demand and consumer confusion. After I spent an afternoon in my country's largest electronics retailer, it's hard not to agree with Samsung.

On of my disappointments with Win RT is that I really wanted a full featured laptop with an ARM version of VS.

Can you imagine how slow VS would be?

VS2010 runs pretty well for small projects on a 1.2 GHZ Core 2 Duo and even the older P4 processors.

The CPU only spikes really when compiling and a fairly modern OS (Windows 7+ because WPF runs awfully badly on XP) it seems to work well enough.

I wouldn't want to attempt working on "The Beast" (93 project solution which brings my 8 core Xeon machine to its knees) on such a machine, but smaller projects are fine.
