    I want the Surface Pro not RT!!!!!!!

    You will not get free Microsoft Office with the Surface Pro. You will only realize what a deal the RT is after 01/13. Surface RT comes with free office. Price office! The surface pro market is not in the range of your average Christmas Gift unless you give expensive gifts. I started using the different development tools for developers and enterprise developers and there have been things they definitely needed time to work out. The enterprise customers want what they will have no matter what the month. The market is not Christmas shoppers that is more in line with the RT. I have seen large gov. contractors using the WIN8 right now on machines without a touchscreen. I even asked isn't that kind of hard and they all said no. It is smart not to rush it as they are offering something that has never been done and that type of road is always bumpy no matter what. When you are the first and paving the road there will be problems and plenty of them. The bottom line is they are paving the road and in it for the long run. Surface is just one of a pleather of devices. The surface rt is a bargain that I want even though I have several Win 8 machines. The offer for office will not be there forever and is not on the surface pro at all.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy
