I'm not surprised, but I actually agree with HP: WindowsRT is just too limited. I'm fine with a little extra weight to get the "real" windows. I don't trust Microsoft to not pull a #wp7
on WindowsRT tablet owners when it comes time to release windows 9 RT. Plus, WindowsRT can't run Chrome or Firefox, so insta-fail. Once Intel closes the weight/price/heat/battery gap with ARM, and not with a locked down windows rt for Intel BS, then I see any reason for windows rt to exist anymore.
