Very cool, an interesting concept.

It'd be nice to see a device like this break Apple's stranglehold on this sort of UI-based portable device.

be nice if it runs using windows 7 - then you coud say install photoshop and use it like a wacom tablet.

I do think the camera is a bit odd and would think it would be hard to use.

I guess now we wait and see if it goes on sale and if apple makes a tablet.

First thought: That keyboard cover thing is brilliant.

I saw a video of D&D being played on the Surface (the original table) and it was really cool.

Definitely interested in checking this thing out. Might actually make the UI in Windows 8 fucking usable :lol:

:agreed: I was hoping they would release one exactly for that reason, actually :lol:

Plus the unit as a whole was just really cool.

Well yeah....a tablet is the ONLY way the Window 8 UI would be usable. Microsoft is being absolutely idiotic bringing that UI to the desktop. There should be a tablet Windows, and a desktop Windows....

The tablet looks good though. Good for them. Apple may already have my money for when I buy my next tablet, but I'll definitely give Microsoft's product a look when the time comes.

And Ballmer's back, baby. He's going to let us touch the Surface. And oh, boy, are we going to touch the Surface.

I don't think the Surface Table is really going anywhere. (I'd totally buy one too if they weren't like, 8k) But it isn't a consumer product anyway.

If Desktop Windows runs decent on this, then I'll totally pick it up, since all I really use Windows for is development shit, and I hate booting in to bootcamp just to do it.

I am a little confused that they are releasing two versions. Windows RT, which I think is ARM, and Windows 8 Pro which has a damned Ivy Bridge in it? :eek:

I am curious to see how nice the Intel based hardware is....For one thing I imagine that it will run too hot...and then I wonder about battery life.
