    Perhaps Intel will update the 2820-based NUC to a 2830 CPU.
    As I wrote in the article, Intel has been silently upgrading to the N2830 while keeping the NUC model number the same.

    Default Would AMD be a better deal?

    Let's face it AMD does give Intel a run for their money In these low end chips. Especially after your Beema and Mullins reviews I'm not sure what the big draw would be for the Intel machines.

    Default When a GNU tablet review

    I did read that the Lenovo 8" Miix 2 Intel SoC that comes with MS WOS 8 is able to run FEDORA with GNOME but has still drivers issues

    Any of this CHEAP Intel tablets with GNOME or KDE can be BEST SELLERS,look at the success of Chrome OS,

    I think it would be even better than the future Ubuntu phone in sells,and any OEM can always offer it also with Android and or MS WOS 8

    You are right! I've been reading so much about Beema and Mullins lately that I totally confused sources here. This brings up the question Micheal, when will we see Beema and Mullins reviewed here on Phoronix?

    Linux always has driver issues, however that has never stopped anybody in the past.

    It isn't that simple! You need a power efficient operating system mire than anything. Otherwise your tablet retains all the heft of an unabridged dictionary due to the battery requirements.

    I really don't see a big draw for Intel hardware in tablets. No matter how you look at it the hardware simply isn't efficient. Especially considering how far behind Intel is with SoC integration.

    +1 (once such devices become available)

    ?? The intel based phones last year were competitive with arm ones in terms of efficiency.
    The intel socs are probably still more expensive, but they've reached their target for power usage.
