Am I the only one that sees the Surface Pro even less sucessful than the RT one?
- It cost the same as an Ultrabook
- It doesn't have and attached keyboard, so it can't be used in the train/bus/airplane in a confortable positition. So it can't be used as a Laptop replacement.
- It weights too much so it can't really be used as a tablet.

What's the market niche for this thing?
Seriously, just asking.
