JoshInRI:
(2GB of ram is simply not enough).  I hope someone will buy this dud and let me know how Logos runs....I wish that person well with it.
That is what many of us thought concerning the original surface pro. Turns out you were the one who bought that dud and reported back to us. I have to challenge your assertion that 2GB  ram isn't enough to run Logos. If all you are running is Logos, 2GB is sufficient. If you plan to multitask, It would not be. Personally, I don't multitask on a tablet. It is primarily for Logos. (As of late, I do keep OneNote open also. I can't see that the addition of OneNote affects the performance at all.)

2GB is not ideal, but Logos does run very well on my tablet with virtually the same specs as the Aspire Switch. And, Logos is installed on a microSD, not the internal drive.

You have to experience it before you can say it doesn't run well.

I searched the entire library for "love" on my desktop with 24GB Ram >>> 1.04 sec. The Venue tablet with 2GB Ram >>> 1.83 sec. I think that's fair performance. Way quicker than I am. Big Smile

JoshInRI:

 

...I will not be "switching" to this dud.  I "aspire" to better hardware.

Yes. That is obvious from the Dud That You Did Buy. Do your friends call you Dudley?

That picture looks like where the original "review" and the language belongs.

A reviewer who can't use measured language, and who cannot see the potential validity in other people's opinions based on their real life experience, is (at least) in danger of spreading misinformation.

The whole thing about detractors who are against the post because it's talking about hardware or because of one word "garbage" -- a smokescreen.

Since it has been mentioned several times in this thread, I will point out again that, despite Josh's initial review of the Surface Pro, I bought one and I couldn't be happier with it.  It is exactly what I wanted, although it would be nice if Logos 5 were optimized for touch.  It heats up some, but nothing like what was described in Josh's experience.

Are you implying that Josh's reviews lean toward the negative end of the spectrum? Surprise

I am explicitly stating that my experience has been different than his.  Stick out tongue

Funny how the reviewer that did not install Logos called the hardware "garbage" while the reviewer that did install Logos has a more positive review. Which review is more objective?

We are speaking of a different machine here. ... The surface pro. Josh does indeed have one and has tested Logos on it.

I stand corrected. Thank you.

Funny how JoshinRI had a negative review of the Surface Pro while Joseph has a more positive review.   Is Josh always so negative?

I think Josh did end up liking the Surface Pro, but it doesn't seem to be everything that he wanted, as he seems to be still looking.  He initially had heating issues that he could not live with, which I believe he said got hot enough to be uncomfortable to the touch.  I have not experienced anything like that, and even though I can find on the internet people who say it gets pretty warm, the general consensus seems to be that it does not get too hot for most people, assuming that it is working normally.

I have not had a chance to look at it.  The idea is great, but I don't think I would have a current use for it.
