i wonder how fun beer pong would be on this thing?
I remember seeing these touch displays a while ago. My opinion is the same awesome concept pretty much the same as any all in one touch screen computer though right. Well except it is branded by Microsoft!
They are very cool and would be awesome to have in a home office! I'd use it with a desk stand, or even a wall mount like in the video on their product webpage. I think using it flat as a table top all the time wouldn't be very good on the neck, but for small meetings it would be a great set up.

"Almost Nine Grand for this puppy. Going to be very useful when its gets cheaper and more accessible. BTW , under the hood, an Athlon II X2 Dual-Core Processor running 2.9GHz paired with AMD HD6750M, SATA2 320GB HD and 4GB of RAM."

I know eh!! It would be a small price to pay for a lot of companies though.
However, unless they came down in price before they were available for personal use, I couldn't see someone justifying that purchase to their significant other LOL
Well think of it this way, at least the stuff shown on the Microsoft video and the sarcastic gamer video can actually be experienced in consumers homes... Well the homes of rich people but at least those rich people can brag that they have a Microsoft Surface tablet to do all sorts of things on.

Manduh:I know eh!! It would be a small price to pay for a lot of companies though.
"Thats true. This would make a great addition to any office or business entrance in places such as Beverly Hills, Park Avenue, any luxury hotel and even in theme parks and Malls, to be used as interactive guides and product show case. We tend to always think of the limits of our budgets, but there are many people and businesses with deep pockets that don't think twice about purchasing something as cool as this. Wish I was in that category, r0FL."
Companies like T-Mobile and a couple of upscale restaurants if I remember correctly have bought some of these things and placed it in most of their prominent stores. Why it isn't in anywhere else, I don't know, I'm guessing their waiting for their devices to come down in price so that they can be easily fixable but the places they do use it show that it is useful...
I do admire that those companies have money to spend, especially the supposedly cashed strapped T-Mobile... Again, the companies that do have a lot of money are willing to spend it but they don't want to risk their money on something that is still in it's infamy; despite it being 4 years after this thing was introduced...
Let's hope next year, it'll be cheap enough for both parties to afford.
I would love to see a few of these things in classrooms :) I mean we have smart interactive boards but they require a projection and I really hate their software. Imaging doing a lab experiment on on of these suckers.
They definitely would be useful for colleges and universities. (I wouldn't trust highschoolers with a $9k piece of equipment though lol)
And actually a lot of Universities are already using the Microsoft Surface in the U.S. and the UK. For an example the University of Massachusetts is using one for their robotics technology. >Here's an interesting article<
