What I am interested in knowing is the music heard in the first-post video

Surface looks awesome to me, and that's all there is to it. About time something as serious as the Android platform invades tablets, even though it is Win8 (which I don't dislike, but do not like much either).

Hi there
why should I pay upwards of 1,000 USD for a device that has less functionality than my nice netbook ACER ASPIRE 1 PC costing less than 350 USD -- 3 of these cost about the same as the price projection of the MS tablet -- so I could take them to bars, lose them or whatever and would hardly have lost much money either.

As for them being stolen -- no self respecting crook would even LOOK at the netbook any more !! Zero re-sale value.

I'm not anti new technology but why pay 1,000 USD for a device that does LESS than what I already have and costs 3 times as much too.

Cheers

^ You don't have to buy one. Compared to your Acer Aspire though, the guestimated $1,000 version of the Surface will have a stronger processor, more memory, touch screen interface, it will likely be smaller and weight less. To some people, these features are more important and worth the price. Look at the sheer # of people who have invested in iPAD's which are just an oversized phone without calling ability.

They are something quite different.

Ipads are a status symbol.

You have to wonder if MS planned this all along. I mean, look at Win 8, it's optimized for a touch pad. MS apparently didn't listen to peoples complaints about the interface, & then they launch their own tablet, on which Win 8 seems to fit perfectly. It's conceivable they had this planned all along.

That's exactly what MS said Months ago. Windows 8 was designed for tablets and phone and would also run on PC's. On the PC, the Start Screen lets you run Desktop Programs or Apps. And the same Apps will be available on tablets and phone. Only time will tell how successful Window 8 will be but I think it will do well.

This is the only thing that Perlow said that made sense. He must have been sleeping though the event or in the crapper reading his own blog posts. What a nerd. After watching the entire presentation I think MS got it right and Windows 8 Surface will kick butt.
