It was a little infomercially but I wish they had done that demo on the reveal. I am thinking about going and standing in line for one now. I was going to hold off for a couple of weeks but I think I need one.
Only a developer will use a Linux. Besides that, I don't know any person in his right mind would dare use an unfriendly environment.
I bought the Surface RT and love it. Microsoft has got a winner here. Can't wait to get the Surface Pro when it comes out.
When did you get the Surface? Did you use it for a week or two to really get to know all the features? It just came out today for public. I just played with the one for an hour and loved it. A lot like my windows phone and loved it.
I'm getting one just to be different.
I don't want to be one of those brainwashed drones carrying Apple products.
Plus I need MS Office computing power more than I need Youtube or Angry Birds!!!
Sentiment: Strong Buy
An 11.6" Ivy Bridge laptop can be found that weighs about two pounds. But the 11.6" screen size is not most popular so there is 12.5" and 13.3".
And 10.1" Clover Trail tablets will be available shortly. That's an Intel processor at 3 watts power consumption and the full Windows OS.
Then I am just totally unimpressed with the convertible PC's and with the ARM tablets. I don't need a convertible because I have a desktop at home. I don't need an ARM tablet because I have an ARM mobile phone that does the same thing.
We are thinking about using them in our warehouse because they are easier than a Windows CE, Android, or Apple device to code to...and because of the USB port you can hook a scanner to them. My initial hesitation was drivers for the scanner on the RT but after yesterday's presentation that doesn't look like a problem. Printer support also looks excellent as well which is a big bonus in a networked environment.
