Btw... with the Great Power of the Surface Pro comes the Great Responsibility of showing it off to all your friends!
1) It will make it far less appealing to steal.
2) If, in two or three years you go to buy or swap to a newer model, you simply swap out your accessories. You can attach a USB 3.0 1TB external HD if needed, a USB 3.0 Flash Drive(they go up to what.. 64-128gig now?) for select toolsets, and a 64gig Memory Card(for which they'll undoubtedly come out with bigger sizes.
And honestly, there is no reason it can't be used as an addendum to a desktop work machine, not as a pure replacment. There is always fun stuff you can do off a big rig like high-end gaming and calculation-intensive applications.
Some people don't understand Human Nature --- for example with all the Millions of GBP / USD / ROU / EUR Manchester United and Chelsea Football clubs have (Real football played with a ROUND ball and people actually use their FEET to kick the ball) they still don't have a monopoly of people supporting them -- there are very small clubs like WIGAN FC whose entire annual income for all its players and staff are probably LESS than ONE WEEK's wages for a top player from either Manchester United or Chelsea who still (Wigan) attaract a loyal following.
Some things can't be measured in purely financial terms no matter how hard or how much money is spent on marketing.
(I include ROU - Roubles - since Chelsea FC is owned by a Russian Multi Billionaire).
I'll admit I LIKE Manchester Utd but without the away supporters of other clubs think how much atmosphere at a game would be lost.
I often miss this when going to sport in the USA --is the lack of the "Away Fans" -- of course with HUGE distances between the franchises this is understandable - probably why College football attracts huge audiences there. Sports Bars in the USA though are often places where rival supporters gather.
About a year ago an analyst put a price target on Apple for $1100.16, I like the way they're so accurate to the last decimal point.
Anyway, Apple is now hovering at just over $400, can we believe analysts, no, imagine if you'd hopped on board at $700.
I personally believe Apple will probably never reach their dizzy heights again, they're already making cheaper products like the iPad Mini and now they're going to make plastic phones, not oober Kool.
Yeah.... ok, the Blackberry 10 is good...
It's been delayed for many months now, isn't really a new OS that should probably be just a skinned version of android than anything, hardware looks like an iphone 5, and an anemic lack of apps with developers reportedly not planning on developing for Blackberry but rather for Windows Phone. More people want a Windows Phone than a Blackberry. If it were a person, it would be at the track meet already limping.
Which would leave the windows phone where, back in the locker room.
The management at RIM is worse than bad.
