    Default Anyone running Beyond on a Windows 8 Tablet?

    Hi all

    Is anyone here running Beyond on a Windows 8 tablet?

    I was just thinking of err... 'Investing' in a tablet for running the occasional legacy Windows programme. I went over to Mac's about six months ago and run VMWare Fusion for any Windows programmes I need. However, the thought of having Beyond running on a tablet PC sort of intrigues me.

    What do you reckon the minimum spec' would be for this task? Also, cheaper the better in this case

    Cheers

    Jem

    Lol, trust you Andy. I'm sure there was someone at the last UKLEM that had Beyond on a tablet... Or did I just dream it

    Hi Jeremy,

    I have it running on the Surface Pros I have. (version 1 and 2). It works fine, no lag or anything. The performance of the Pro 2 is not significantly more than the original Pro, but it has the Haswell chipset, which virtually doubles the battery life for the tablet, given it an almost iPad type of duration.

    Hi Jem, I run on Surface Pro (v1) with no problems - makes a very handy portable controller. If you look through FB archive can probably find a pic I posted year or so ago.

    Edit: found it.

    Oh crap... now I gotta buy something else. I've been thinking about a tablet anyway and this may have just put me over the edge.

    Thanks Guys... I knew someone would be along with a sensible answer (sorry Andy )

    @Ade. It must have been yours I saw at the LEM

    @James. I noticed that about the battery life on the v2

    @araugh. Thanks for the confirmation

    @Brad... Hehe, you're a hopeless addict, apologies for feeding your addiction lol.
