    I'd like to hear Microsoft's justification for this one. Atom has fully supported the x86 instruction set for the last 8 years. The Atom Z2580 is a dual-core 2GHz processor, more than capable of running Windows 10 with a couple applications.

    Wintel based tablets at the time weren't wildly successful and with the rate at which the things are dropped or just considered obsolete (with an intel atom, I would imagine this happens shortly after unboxing) , how many of them could still be out there?

    Aren't they PowerVR based? I guess Imagination have bigger worries than porting 7 year old drivers to Creators Update right now :(
