    Advice to MSFt - Make another Surface Win8 Pro wih INTC Atom for longer batery life

    It is good to see msft has got two Surface tablets in the market or about to be inthe market. Surface RT for lower cost and good performance, and Surface Win 8 Pro for excelent perpromance.

    However, Surface Pro has battery life just 5 hours or so.

    It will make perfact sense for MSFt to sell naother Surface model int he near future that has the atom chip. Similar models from smsang is already selling, and it appears to be selling well at Best Buy. With INTC atom chip, MSft will be able to have a Surface tablet that will be a aprice point that is somweger between Surface RT and Surface Pro,and most importantly, the new Surface will have battery life 8-10 hours.

    Of course, down the road, MSft shold make more Surface modles that will have different sizes and even better perfomance along with battery lfe about 10 hours. Hopefully, MSF will be able to achieve this with INTC Haswell chips.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy
