For a heavy user if one was to continuously be monkeying on the screen what would happen to shoulder joint? has there been any study on impact of this on shoulders? I am sure shoulder joints would get scr3w3d in long run

Whats my first tablet gonna be? Android.....or Surface......? Sony...make Playstation Mobile available on Surface.....cuz I dont think MS will make Xbox Arcade games available on Android....lol.
I got a PS3 and a 360....I dont think I can do that for tablets. That reminds me....if Sony is aligned with Android...its also Sony vs MS for the gaming.

I would rather spend a couple hundred more on a Razer Edge and get an i7 + 640m + more storage.

I know that if I were to have the available funds, I would be getting the 128Gb version of the Surface Pro for my next "laptop".

"However it is a full sized instrument, like a regular pen, so it will fit in your pocket protector just fine." pocket protector? apple fanboy much?, you are looking at a real tablet, not a jumbo sized iPod touch, and yes, I have an iPad

Seeing posts about the price....I'm scared to even ask what it is....
If its the price of a desktop PC or laptop....you can forget it. Even tho it seems to do the work of a desktop PC.....I get a whole lotta bang for my buck spending that money on a PC.

The price actually doesn't seem too bad considering the ASUS Eee Slate and the Samsung Series 7 Slate were originally in the $1000-1300+ range, and those tablets seem comparable to the Surface Pro, having Wacom digitizers, SSD drives, etc.
And yeah, because it's so expensive compared to other devices you can get, I wouldn't recommend getting a Surface Pro unless you're going to be doing some serious field or graphics work. But if you are, having that Penabled tablet PC is totally worth it.
If you're wanting casual entertainment, get a cheap tablet. If you're wanting something for productivity on the go that's not related to design work, get a laptop.

most of the comments are just fanboyism
not on what this thing can do
I think all of us have to admit that this thing is a big ahead coz it can do more rather than a RT, android tab ,and an Ipad
lets move on
this is more of a investment rather than a toy ....

MacBook pro + Ipad4 = surface pro :) (in terms of features)

Well it's here Folks. some people got to test try it in los Vegas and said it works just fine. now there are truly 2 types of tablets on the market the store apps only General tablets like the Ipads, Android tablets, and the windows RT Tablet and the second type the more
powerful Tablet PC's such as the old Windows 7 tablets and the Better Windows 8 tablets.
if you are not into using standard Windows PC desktop/Laptiop/Server programs then the Ipads ,Android Tablets and the Windows surface RT is for you but if you desire to run
standard Windows programs written to run on Windows 7, Vista. XP, Windows 2000. Windows NT. and some Windows 95/98 programs in compatibility mode the New Microsoft
"Surface Pro" wont let you down. Lenovo makes an I7 CPU Windows 8 tablet which is more powerful , there are cheaper Windows 8 tablets on the market. My personnel opinion
is to buy only buy windows 8 tablets that are run by Intel i5 or i7 CPU's or an AMD CPU that is similar in power to the Intel i5 an i7 CPU chipset because they can run Windows 8 more smoothly than Atom chips can but the Atom windows 8 tablets are cheaper!!
