    "But my question if that happens, how will Office work on a screen so small".

    It's not really suited for that sort of thing maybe some editing and checking some work that sort of thing, not heavy lifting. It's a consumption device with other good uses like the ones I mentioned,travel etc.

    The world is in transition at the moment, with a bit of luck MS will be a part of that transition, but if people don't take to Windows 8 and Surface they may not be, Windows 7 is not going to cut it and nor are traditional PC's, there will always be some sort of PC around, just not the old boxes that we're used to.

    The main feature about Windows RT is Office 2013, if a small tablet has Windows RT and no Office, eeehhhh....

    Then it would be a true and pure consumption device, yes.

    Don't worry you aren't the only person thinking this. Those are the dumbest commercials ever!!! Apple is definitely losing its "touch" RIP Steve Jobs.

    If these rumors are true, I may just have to wait, I was planning on getting a Surface after boot camp (sometime within the next six months) but I may just have to wait until next year!
