    ...buy MS stuff and help to make it popular. The same way the Internet became popular, through techies and gamers and porn

    Maybe they should get into porn, that seems to be quite popular. LOL.

    Bill, you are full of excuses and I seem to detect more than a little bitterness.

    I haven't seen Surface Pro - so can't comment. The idea of a 10 in laptop 1.5 pounds seems sound to me.

    Well, after using a Surface Pro for a few hours today, I gotta say..it has not blown me away. The real beauty I expected was being able to run classic Windows desktop apps. What I found was that at 1920x1080 on a 10.6" screen, many are painful to use. Unless I needed absolute mobility, I cannot in good conscience recommend a Surface Pro. I say save $500 and get an RT instead. It's really only the new UI apps that you are really going to want to use on these devices anyway.

    It will likely do well with the existing users. Sadly, there aren't really enough of them left. They will want to pull in new users. That won't be easy.

    Again, absolutely and totally false. You don't even seem to care one jot that you're lying through your teeth all the time.

    There have been numerous tablets prior to the Surface that were full computers, under anyone's definition, running various versions of Windows and able to run any Windows programs.

    You seem to think that you can keep lying and people will begin to believe those lies.

    Yes, we had numerous Windows 7 tablets in our offices that were full computers.

    And if anyone needs proof, have a look at this listing showing the many and varied tablets etc dating way back to 2002 running Windows XP:Windows tablets, UMPCs, and MIDs - Windows For Devices Articles - Windows for Devices

    You see people this is Microsoft, they build a Surface RT and someone says it should be able to run full blown Windows. They build a Surface Pro and Mr Parks says you only need a Surface RT, it's a lose lose situation.

    Windows users, can't live without them, can't live with them.

    Probably a poor choice of words, more like the first full Windows OS built specifically for a touch tablet, might have been better. Don't get your knickers in a knot Mr Ray you'll do yourself an injury.

    You take lots of things out of context. The screen resolution is so high that trying to use the classic desktop is not a fun task. I was expecting to find a ton of value and potential in this device, however I am disappointed thus far. Maybe with more time I will come around, but the fact that the Surface is sitting on the table next to me and my wife is using her HP Laptop and I'm using the Chromebook doesn't bode well for the poor Surface Pro.
