Re: Tablet Discussions

I think I understand what you are getting at but the deciding factor there seems more based on the form factor.

For example, if you have two Chromebooks side by side with one using a Exynos 5 Dual Core Cortex-A15 SoC and the other using a Intel Celeron 847 1.1GHz,.....you might not be able to tell the difference by just looking but if you look closely enough you may see that the platforms are different. I just think its a mistake to only consider the form.

If you can shrink an old 486 DX processor based system down to the size of a watch that you can put on your wrist nothing has changed save for its size so why regard it differently,.....?

ARM is a completely different architecture,....and that is the meat of it IMO.
