    I've been interested in getting the lenovo lynx for a while now mainly because it isn't RT.
    After thinking about it I don't think I need legacy apps.

    My biggest concern though is the processor. They seem comparable since the Atom isn't really that great from what I've heard.

    Ultimately I would use it for surfing the internet, playing a few games, and watching NetFlix. Are these going to perform the exact same? I prefer the construction of the RT and since they are the same price it's becoming more difficult to make a decision.

    I've read somewhere around here that using the desktop and legacy applications on the lynx is sluggish.

    Has anyone connected either of these to a tv and streamed netflix?

    By RT do you mean surface RT? I have a atom tablet(Samsung ativ 500t) and a surface RT. Both are great devices. But if all you need is Netflix, couple games, office, browsing web then I would get the surface RT it is definitely superior in build quality.

    Yes, my fault, Surface RT.
    One other thing i forgot was that RT doesn't have VLC player as far as i know and I would need that.
    I'm also of just thinking of getting an ASUS ultrabook that best buy has for $529.00.

    dude, just wait a couple of months and get a haswell tablet. i have the surface rt and it's a nice toy, but despite microsoft's efforts it's not much more than that. with this years processor upgrades it should be quicker and more gentle on the battery as it currently is i find the surface rt a nice addition to laying on the couch but really not more than that

    Is there any pricing on them? Will they be around $500.00?

    I've seen the lynx for as low as $300 at staples. At that price, it would be an easy choice for me.

    Just for the record I got the Lynx and am returning it because of the weak WIFI connection. Everything works really well with the exception of WIFI.

    yeah, that would be a deal breaker for me too. Sorry it didn't work out for you.
