It feels like just yesterday when me and my friends would be drooling over the specs of my newly built gaming PC. intel core i7 processor, 8GB ram and an entire TB of HDD. Wait for it... I could run WoW at just about 60 FPS! "Holy Crap", my friends said with excitement!
While those specs don't really live up to modern-day standards that is my recollection of decent gaming specs only 5-10 years ago. Now phones, tablets, and small form-factor computers are really pushing the limits of great UI and even beefier specs to boot. - See what I did there? Yeah BIOS! Get that one? like BOIS! but I switch the O and the I... okay, I'm sorry let's move on.
It's hard to believe this, but packed into this tiny little form factor we are looking at (on the top shelf of options)
Screen: 12.3” PixelSense™ Display
Resolution: 2736 x 1824 (267 PPI)
Aspect ratio: 3:2
Touch: 10 point multi-touch
Quad-Core 10th Gen i3, i5, i7 up to 3.90Ghz
Ambient light sensor
1 x USB-C™
1 x USB-A
3.5 mm headphone jack
1 x Surface Connect port
Surface Type Cover port4
MicroSDXC card reader
So based of these specs alone, and knowing how the surface functions, I will say this is by no means a particularly viable option for gaming or even replacing your sick-nasty desktop. We will always run into the issue of processor handle and cooling issues with a small form factor. However, if you are looking for a long-lasting, super-lightweight windows 10 pro machine, look no further!
