    Question 1: If you bought a external Blu-ray drive could you install any PC game you like and save it to your Surface on desktop mode?

    Question 2: If you installed it on your Surface would you need to run the disk every time or could you just run it off your Surface's SSD drive?

    Question 3: How do you think gaming would be like? Graphics, Speed, Controls ext.

    Question 4: Do you think it will run a basic RTS Game like Lord of the Rings Battle for middle earth?

    Surface Pro, probs. RT, no. Unless they put it on the W store, which I doubt. 😥

    1/2. Same as you would on a Windows 8 desktop/laptop PC
    3. Not great. Intel HD4000 is not a gaming GPU, especially at 1080p. Expect to turn everything to low-mid settings, no AA/post-processing, etc.
    4. Probably, just need to find the sweet spot for the graphics settings

    EDIT:

    Here's what you can expect http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/I...vy_Bridge_GPU/

    Just remember the CPU in Surface Pro is nowhere near the 3770k being tested in the review.
    Nokia Lumia 1520 RM-937 w/ 64GB MicroSD card
    Microsoft Surface 2 32GB w/ Type Cover 2

    Smartphone History: iPhone 3G 8GB -> iPhone 4 8GB -> iPhone 4S 16GB -> Nexus S -> iPhone 4S 16GB -> Lumia 900 -> Lumia 920 -> Lumia 1520

    Can you game on it? Sure. Will it be a pleasant experience? That's up to your personal taste. We could "game" on Ti-82 graphing calculators, but doesn't mean it was the bee's knee's heh.
