No surprise to me. They are selling like hotcakes and the MSFT's next quarter's will be quite a shock to shorters. Surface Pro will eat up the tablet market and MSFT is being very hushed about it. It's happening.
I don't hate MSFT. I hate Windows 8, Vista, Zune, RT/WinCE, WP8/Mango/Kin. Windows 7 and XP are actually great products. So what does Microsoft do? MSFT tries to discontinue their best product lines and force people to 'upgrade' to something nobody wants.
Sentiment: Strong Sell
to each their own....
I like the product of the surface and windows eight looks so easy and simple yet as powerful as can be.
its a nice package imo i might get an rt just for email office work ex....
It's good news for you and here's why:
Worst iFixit score ever
A teardown of Microsoft’s new Surface Pro tablet has revealed that it is virtually impossible to repair.
The tablet got the worst score handed out by iFixit, just one out of ten. It ranked lower than the iPad and Surface RT.
The teardown revealed that the screen is held in place by “a metric duckload” of adhesive, which means it is almost impossible to remove. The battery is also glued in place and iFixit claims that it is impossible to replace without wrecking the back cover. As if a “duckload” of glue wasn’t enough, the Surface Pro also contains more than 90 screws.
All this makes Microsoft’s new tablet impossible to repair and anyone trying to take it apart will probably destroy it in the process. Granted, tablets aren’t meant to be easily repairable, but the fact that it ranks lower than the iPad, which is notoriously tough to take apart and fix, doesn’t bode well for Redmond.
Sentiment: Strong Sell
"[...] the fact that it ranks lower than the iPad, which is notoriously tough to take apart and fix, doesn’t bode well for Redmond."
Why are you equating a lack of replaceable parts with a bad outcome for Microsoft? The majority of small, compact electronic gadgets produced these days have a similar design ethic. Their intended to be recycled and replaced, entirely. Unless you have some actual data suggesting that the Surface or Surface Pro have an unusually short life span, your comments about the number of screws in the device are quite irrelevant. They certainly don't indicate any kind of problem for Microsoft sales.
That is a good question im just wondering now if I can get one at a retail outlet?
This surly in the medium run will be good for Microsoft and I like the new way of office cloud service were one pays per year not the huge three to six hundred dollar upgrade......now it is only one hundred
