I agree with a lot of what was said and I am excited about the future of Windows computing. As a first effort this device did well but it is not perfect.
One of the benefits of Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8 over Apple's OSes is that there will be many different hardware devices to choose from. As Jason pointed out there are Lenovo offerings that may be even better than the Surface. The same is true for the phone market. My iPhone 4 has a 3.5" screen. That is too small but now I have the ability to buy an iPhone 5 with a 4" screen. That is not really much of a choice. With Android phones you can choose from 10s of different phones ranging from 3" to 6+". Hopefully the range of hardware for WP8 will expand after MWC. Anyway my point is that for Windows 8 Pro you will have as many choices in hardware from as many different companies as you do for Android phones. That is powerful.
There will never be the perfect device that satisfies everyone. Personally I don't care that the Surface Pro won't stand up on my lap, but the screen size (for me) is too small. I probably won't buy this version of the Surface Pro. I will keep watching for the perfect device for me to come out and then get it. In the future I would definitely consider getting a MS Surface product if the specs fit my specific needs.
