Excuses excuses.......

Less than flattering reviews of Microsoft's Surface Pro tablet start to, uh, surface.

Quote:
Steve Kovach at Business Insider said rather bluntly that "the Surface Pro is just like the first Surface except it's thicker, heavier, costs at least $400 more, and has about half the battery life. It looks like a tablet, but you can snap on an optional (but essential) keyboard cover that turns the Surface Pro into a pseudo-laptop. So why would anyone buy that?" He went on to conclude that Surface Pro falls into a "strange product category" that will only appeal to a small number of people "who want to try a funky form factor."

Yea. Total failure MS.
Only the truly hardcore will, or should, buy this.
$999 for the 128gb model. $99.00 to rent Office 2013 for a year. $130 for the Touch Type keypad.
$1230. You can get a sweet, lightweight, longer battery life, much larger hard drive Ultra book..

Cheaper.
