    Microsoft's Surface with Windows 8 Pro go on sale Feb 9th


    Business buyers who said no to Microsoft's Surface with Windows RT will get a chance to try the Surface with Windows 8 Pro when it goes on sale next month. Will the second time be the charm for Microsoft? Or will businesses pass on the radical tablet/PC design?

    They've probably been reading your comments and thought why bother.

    Holy balls! There seems to be an advert video for the Surface Pro that looks like it will make it on the telly in a cut down form. Either I should serious consider a career in marketing or I REALLY know Microsoft's intentions, because this third latest video shows, WHAT the Surface Pro is capable of doing! How I would had marketed the Surface is LITERALLY EXACTLY how I would had done it: something of an over the top introduction (dancing the Surface stomp), something psychedelic (the advert with the digital music), and then the third would be what the Surface is capable of doing (this latest one that looks like it's running Photoshop CS6 and shows off the I/O connectivity). Microsoft seems to have executed that perfectly. Or maybe I know how to advert correctly!! This is what I wish they had done with Windows Phone 7!
