OK, bumping because the new lineups of the various OEMS look fantastic. Especially the docking/undocking thing, swivel screen and the two screen thingy. I am just in love with them.

It has been officially launched now.  Surface looks good. But the Pro version should be better.

And Microsoft is offering Windows Media center for free till January 2013.Otherwise, it will cost $10 now. If you want to avail this offer, say so and I will post the links.

What is iPad if not tablet? Confused And it sells for that price too, right? They are thing of the same league. You cannot compare Pro to iPad. Pro will be running full fledged Windows on x86, which means it is a PC with touch. It can run everything app out there. iPad is just no competition for it. So wanting that for same price is naive.

Surface RT and iPad are fair comparison, both have tablet OS. Still, 8 betas it in some places. But that's a choice people have to make. But they are the one in the same segment, not Pro and iPad.

Multitasking wise and app switching are great improvement over iOS. Snapping one app to side while working on another simultaneously is a great feature. Also, USB 2.0 port while iPad is replacing with just a thunderbolt connector which won't be compatible with anything. Surface also comes with micro SD. You can just connect mouse and keyboard and they work.

Linux is open source, so anything with a price is gonna be more expensive. Tongue
