    Even apple users were impressed with surface

    this Christmas as the family gathered , I had my surface out , showed it to the many apples users and they thought it was pretty cool..... I think what is happening is people are now realizing there are other companies besides apple that make some pretty cool tablets and phones ... they are starting to become less brainwashed !!

    • An ARM tablet is just a coffee-shop browser. But MS did add a version of Office to their ARM tablet.

      But tablets with Intel Atom are available and those will run a regular version of Office or apps like Photoshop.

      One problem with the Surface is that it can't be used as a laptop but requires a table-top. (Some of us have computed sitting on tree stumps, sitting in pickup trucks, and riding in small boats.)

      But the Samsung ATIV 500T tablet gets the Atom processor AND a different form factor. And there's an 700T model as well.

      Now, HTC gave up on a large screen Win 8 mobile phone. But see, they can do a large screen Win RT mobile phone. Get it ? A large screen mobile phone is a small screen ARM tablet.

      I have been beta testing the surface pro and yousa-it is great. Beats the pants off iPad big time with 256 gb xd card. So long Apple iPad.

    • The AAPL fanbois are waking up to the fact that they have been holding over hyped over priced AAPL Junk for years,The Surface will convert many of these poor abused wretches.
