I have to hand it to them it sounds like they have a nice piece of equipment I heard that big Steve referred to it several times as magical while on stage and I am sure another Steve is rolling over at that one but really it seems to have a lot of fruit whether it be in the product or the thought. Either way the product sound nice and seems to be very versatile as well as functional as well.
It is the little things that matter... Super sturdy kickstand, calculated weight distribution inside the surface to make it both comfortable to hold and designed to not fall out of the hand as easy, 22 degree angled cameras, actual multitasking, and free office....
I really hope MS see's success with the Surface especially the Pro once released...
It's nice to see Microsoft step up to the plate. While I'm already deep into the Android ecosystem, with game and app purchases, I'm definitely going to keep my eye on the Surface Pro...possibly as a laptop replacement later on.

I like the laptop that I have now, and I can get replacement Laptops for less than this costs.
I'll sit this one out, thank you.
Don't part with your illusions. When they are gone you may still exist, but you have ceased to live.
Realneil but your laptop and replacement laptop aren't as portable as the surface and won't have a touch screen at a lower price point. It's all about what your needs are and some people either need a physical keyboard or don't need a touch screen. You also didn't mention if you own a tablet as well? If someone wants to own a laptop and tablet (as I currently do now) it's more convenient and cheaper to own a surface pro than the 2 seperate ones I have now.
But hopefully machines like this replace the majority of notebooks on the market within th next 3-5 years.
sevags:It's all about what your needs are
That's why I don't want one. My needs are covered for now,........
I do have an iPad 2nd generation that one of my kids gave me, and my (actually two) laptops are portable enough to take places and ~use~ while I'm there.
I just can't justify spending the money for this Surface Tablet when I already have enough good technology on hand to use when I need it.
