    A Surface Pro with lower specs and long battery life would be a welcome addition to the family. I don't see why they can't make an ultra thin Surface with full 8.1 using Bay Trail at a reasonable price point somewhere in between Pro and RT.

    Agree.
    There is a market for the high powered tablets like Surface Pro, but most average users don't need that much power. If they want a full Windows 8.1 tablet the Atom Bay Trail, or similar, is a good option.
    I got a HP X2 convertible for the Wife, it has an Atom Z2760 (Clover Trail) CPU and it is perfect for her usage scenario. When this configuration catches on and the price drops it will be a solid device for many, ie the average users.

    Hopefully we'll see some once IFA is here. This seems like the longest wait ever for Haswell and Baytrail.
