    What's the future of Microsoft's ARM-based tablets?

    A few years back, Microsoft took an ambitious step to build a version of Windows that would run on ARM-based processors. At the time, this was a huge move, as many expected this new operating system, called Windows RT, to challenge the standard that Intel and AMD were the only vendors who could produce laptop-class processors. With several well known ARM vendors such as NVIDIA and Qualcomm producing the chips, there was hope that ARM-based devices would rival those made by Intel and AMD at the low end of the market...

    ...So what is the future of ARM for Windows tablets? Every OEM has moved away from the platform in favor of Intel Atom chips, as they give consumers more options with the ability to run desktop apps. So with Intel able to scale down effectively and compete head-to-head with ARM chips, is there really a need for both? More so, at this point, why would you chose an ARM chip over and Intel one if battery life is comparable and clearly price is not an issue?...
