That's hardly true. Intel has massively reduced their TDP in the last few years and nothing ARM will touch a Core i5 (Surface Pro 2) in terms of performance. The Bay Trails are decent and the Z3795 based tablets look good with 4GB RAM. That's enough to comfortably run Win 8 and normal desktop apps. Many of the improvements we've seen in the MBA and MBP lines are due to Intel making the x86 far more efficient for mobile.
