    Had my heart set on Dell because I trust the brand but I see way too many gripes about the Venue Pro 8 so I got this instead. My question is, what's the most powerful full windows game I can run on here to show a friend what it's really capable of. He's absolutely certain his nexus tablet is better for gaming because it has that Order and Chaos or whatever and I aim to show him otherwise. Also, any other tips, tricks or thoughts?

    Half-Life 2 and Portal should run well. I'm sure he's familiar with those. Maybe some Starcraft II or League of Legends will convince him if he's into those. They shouldn't be too taxing, from what I hear. I don't play them, so I can't really say.

    Let us know which games you decide to run on it! I'm curious to see what it's limits are. And how well it runs. I'll be getting a Thinkpad 8 when Lenovo decides to ship it to me.

    Just to back up my claim, here's a test of Portal on the DV8P, which is quite similar spec-wise. He shows his settings and has a frame counter and as you can see its running quite well:

    This was impressive and still is. Don't get me wrong. But I looked up minimum requirements for running portal 2 straight from steam: "1.7 GHz Processor, 512MB RAM, DirectX 8.1 level Graphics Card (Requires support for SSE), Windows 7 (32/64-bit)/Vista/XP, Mouse, Keyboard, Internet Connection" I think this is really cool and probably proves that it could play AoE II HD edition with ease. Know of any other videos of games being played on a bay trail atom?

    Found this one. Though I skipped through a lot of it since it was almost an hour long.
