These reviewers are really dumb - http://blogs.computerworld.com/bring-your-own-device-byod/21743/surface-pro-review-roundup-fastfat-coolcompromised-itbwcw
Yes the surface is 'heavy' for a tablet but battery life is fine if you turn off the display while you use the external one.
If you dim the display and add 256gb xd card there is no small storage issue. What a bunch of crappy people to review this product. I love mine. I only use the battery while away from my desk at meetings and it is fine.
Yes, it would be nice to up the battery life to radiate your body to death like the iPad, but I would like to live longer and really learn how to use the device correctly. I tossed my iPad in the river after getting this Surface Pro.
I think this article is from an anti-MS person. How can anybody compare Win8 with toys/tablets? This is ridiculous. MS Pro is an unique device, which should be compared only with regular/conventional laptops. If you want the toys (IPADs) then Win8 surface PRO is not for you folks.
