Heads up, Chromebook: Here come the sub-$200 Windows 8.1 portables

> I doubt many here have tried W8.1 on a 1Gb PC considering a)most people don't use W8.1 b)very few PCs have 1Gb RAM.

I tried it on actual hardware. An ExoPC - old-style Atom, 1GB RAM, 64GB m-SATA SSD, touchscreen, basically a netbook with no keyboard.

It runs fine. No you don't really want to try Crysis - not least because there's no keyboard and no GPU - and you probably wouldn't want to try to multitask more than 4 (desktop) applications at a time (Win8 apps are a different matter, you can go as nuts as you like with those).

This is actually the main reason why I know that most of the WindowsH8 brigade are bullshitters.
