Windows I have a Surface RT tablet. I bought it because I'm a Windows Phone user, and despite its major flaws, I still hate WP much less than I hate its competitors. As such, it made sense to me that I would like the Surface RT as well - I mean, my favourite UI on a tablet? Count me in! It should come as no surprise by now that Windows RT was a major disappointment, so now that the Windows 8.1 preview is here, did Microsoft address any of the major problems?

Surface RT Slowdown = storage?

I've honestly wondered since its launch if the the slow down/lag that the Surface RT experiences is due more to the fact that it uses just regular old http://www.samsung.com/global/business/semiconductor/product/flash-... instead of an actual SSD. we've seen the slow down and lag issues on the Nexus 7 and other android devices do to bad controllers/wear/lack of TRIM.

Anyone know of a way to check to see how thats working?

Like a lot of real world performance problems, its a lot of things combined which add up. Its plausible that this is a contributing factor.
