Surface Pro: Speed, Battery Life, & Instant On are Crucial, not price
What I've seen of the Surface Pro looks really good to me. I'll be happy to use that instead of my 14" ASUS notebook (good but too slow even with a Core i5 & 8 MB RAM, & battery life ain't great neither -- only 5 hours). I used to do real work on an ASUS Eee PC. The 7.5" was too small, but the 9" was good enough -- except for that tiny keyboard -- until the 10" came around. I need Windows, MS Office, & maybe Acrobat Pro (or Nitro Pro 7 PDF) and a basic graphics program -- but not Photoshop, thank goodness -- for my work. Win7 is excellent, but I hope for more from Win8.
