I run Everything on my Surface Pro 3. Core i7 4650, 8GB DDR4 memory, 256GB SSHDD. With a USB 3.0 hub, I hook my Maschine MKII, M-Audio Oxygen 25, NI Komplete 6 USB Audio interface, 2X dual bay SATA/SSD docks, 1 Seagate 1TB USB SSHDD, & a wireless mouse and keyboard. I run Maschine 2.2, Reaper, Ableton Live 9, and occasionally Audacity. It gets a little warm, but an 8-core Haswell in this frame is expected to do so.
