I use the Series 7 Slate i3 model at home with Windows 8 and it works perfectly. Angry Birds Star Wars, Cut the Rope and Fruit Ninja all work perfectly and my kids love it! A friend of mine uses his S7S i3 to play Civilization (constantly). But don’t forget that it can comfortably run your existing Windows programs like Microsoft Office and Bluebeam Revu too!
The windows 8 upgrade is very easy and I did not have to download any drivers to make it all work. Since the Series 7 Slate was the reference design for Windows 8 you’d expect it to work seamlessly and it does.
