Played with MS Surface and Lenovo Yoga today at Best Buy
The guy said the Yoga was hot in demand and I liked it best, too. It will be my next purchase as they had none in stock. I liked the Surface and asked him about he. He said they were actually selling well and he said there were also a ton of people waiting on the Pro.
I asked him what he thought about the PC dying. He laughed and pointed to the Tablet section and said "Tablets are dying as Laptops that can also be a tablet are killing them."
MS entering the tablet market is a game changer. People have a lot of Windows apps they would like to put on their tablets. I have a android tablet but would love to have a Windows tablet if the the price is right. Windows 7 didn't work very well with tablets but Windows 8 does. Can't wait to get my hands on the Surface Pro particularly if it comes with the new Haswell chip. The low wattage design of Haswell is made for the tablet.
Also, to set the Surface against the Think Pad 2 tablet and against the Elite Pad 900 tablet would require three Surface. One with an ARM processor, one with an Atom processor, and one with an Ivy Bridge processor because the Think Pad 2 tablet and the Elite Pad 900 tablet have Atom processors.
Both MS and Intel think the Surface Pro will be a true game changer. The Surface merely tested the waters. This is where the rubber really hits the road. With full support for legacy Windows apps, the Surface Pro is like a PC that has been shrunk and pared down to its bare essentials. At this form factor, it's low weight and small size really makes its users see it in a different light. It's like an Ultrabook, only half the heft and all the features.
