Thanks, Patrick. People asked you if you'd be getting one or not, and you say no, and tell why - it doesn't meet the needs for your preferred way of working.
Fact is, it doesn't meet mine either for similar reasons. But the note taking features, the promise of real/full windows apps (we'll see), and the pen (!) mean I'm going to give it a try, and maybe it'll be worth it enough for me to change my preferred way of working...just a bit.
I'm sure I don't have to tell you, but you can ignore the fan-boy comments and those who post negative opinions telling you they don't want your opinion...
As for me, I need the flexibility that an Android gives currently. So my tablet of choice, at least prior to hands-on evaluating a Surface Pro, is an Android device. Your opinions and preferences will give me something else to test on the Surface when I get the chance.
Everyone is a fan of what they like. Everybody should be encourage to use what fits them best. My wife is best served by an iPad, and my daughter by an iPad mini. We all run Macs, with Windows in a virtual machine so we have the best of all worlds right at our fingertips. That's the way we work, that's our preferences. We're all fans of being productive and the platform that gets us there is the best one - for us.
