    Seemed pretty clear to me they were running a vanilla Surface as provided by Microsoft with OOB settings and it lagged in his apps. He says himself it might be fixable in a patch and he was able to work through it... Either way I don't see anyone else giving it even the faint praise PA is, and...

    No Mini Surface BTW. Lots of handwringing on why that happened but it was probably a smart move. The new Surface Pro is.... well.... http://www.theverge.com/2014/5/23/5743416/microsoft-surface-pro-3-review

    Well, what else they got? Mobile is clearly the future and they have made it their quest to make one OS that runs everywhere, saying that Mobile only OS are passe.. What direction would you have them take. Also, please insert the words 'rumored' in my post above. Seems like a genuine leak...

    If you are going to go the Penny Arcade route and use it as a Cintiq I think its a good deal. Not good enough for me to bite but its close.

    The thing is features aren't everything. Support, interoperability, and oh yeah UX and delight are all as or more important than raw capabilities. Edit to add: inertia and brand name too. People use MS word because people use MS Word.

    Can't help you on that one Dave. The lead artist for Penny Arcade was pretty impressed using Surface Pro as a quasi-Cintiq using just MS Paint. That's encouraging for that segment tho. I actually kinda feel bad to keep bashing on these things. Like X-Files I "Want to believe" The thing is, the...

    Of course, I'm just reminiscing about when we were all deluded enough to think this could ever have shipped as a mass market item with a price to match. I still think they should have gone with Courier.

    I'm curious about the CNET award. Why didn't the Note 2 take that honor over the S3? Isn't that what you guys are most excited about? The S3 is going to be replaced within a month too if the predictions behind the CES video are true...

    Wasn't you i was zinging =p Multiple separate points being mixed here. I think that the vast majority of people are more price conscious than they are specs conscious these days, especially when solutions that 'just work' in a variety of form factors from multiple vendors are out there. And...
