    Vid is about a month and a half old but I just came across it. It tests how the Surface handles a 1080p flash video, HD trailer, Windows Defender Scan and gaming all at the same time. I must say, I'm quite impressed. I didn't think the processor could keep pace. Still, I would like to see game developers really push the graphic capability of the hardware.

    Never tested that way. My daughter used it to browse internet with "ms word" open and music player. She told me that it was slow. Also, I went to bestbuy yesterday. People either buy laptops or ipads. It is so sad to see two lonely surface rt sitting there without catching anyone's eyes.

    very impressive, I usually render my movies to 720p for the surface since the screen is 720p anyway. I do however bump up the sound a few db while exporting so the soft speakers on surface actually perform louder!

    That's pretty amazing, but how did he get Crysis 2 to play on his RT?

    He is playing it over remote desktop. It's running from his desktop.

    Impressive! The fact that you can actually launch the software from the app is sweet. I would love to try this out (now I just have to win that RT contest...lol).
