Windows Surface Pro question

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Hey folks.

 

Will Windows Surface Pro work like a regular PC?

 

I have some exe programs that I use for work which installs on the computer So I can trade stocks, currency etc...

 

I just want to know if these programs will work with Surface Pro?

 

 

I am looking for something that will help me follow emails, news, search internet and execute some of the work related programs I have. I believe Windows Surface Pro could be the answer for me.

THat is great to know.

 

So basically Windows Surface Pro is a laptop, but you wouldn't probably do graphic intensive stuff?

Yep, it's basically an ultra book without the keyboard, they use their touch covers instead.

It has an Intel HD 4000 graphics card. While I wouldn't jump straight to Crysis as a benchmark, the latest out of Intel has actually been kind of impressive. There are videos on YouTube of people running Team Fortress 2 and StarCraft 2 at decently high settings, and getting very high framerates (on similar hardware).

If by graphics-intensive, you mean Photoshop, I might agree with you there. Still, I'd like to try using it for drawing - seeing how Gates couldn't stand giving us another tablet without including a stylus-pen with it.
