W8 was designed with tablets in mind so you can be sure it's not laggy. The only dark cloud hovering over it is pricing. Hope they're priced right.

Looks better than a Ipad and it comes with a keyboard.

Ivy Bridge Processor.. Ooh :O That's already shocking. This is probably the most powerful tablet. Gotta start saving, because it'll be $800. I'm sure.

Now this is what I call a "quality product" It's like Microsoft read my mind somehow and looked over what I wanted in a tablet, and it's awesome that the smart covers will include a neat keyboard. Literally no difference to any laptop.

This tablet doesn't look like it'll disappoint :D If this is a big hit, we can see apple and android finally having another competitor up their sleeves.

if this become a big hit, android will have a serious competitor, but i'm quite sure apple will try to get rid of it. apple may decide to sue m$. after all, patents for everything that's shaped rectangular with touch interface belongs to apple and they are allergic to competition.

Minus the fact that Microsoft Surface is a reference to Microsoft Surface (now PixelSense) which is this:http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/8/88/Surface_table.JPG take a good look at that device and tell me what it looks like. It was revealed in May 2007. Yes, May 2007.

The pro one is not market to the android/iPad user, it is market to the Ultrabook because it is running a 22 nm i5. It also have the fun MS window on it. This for people who want to do real work, and not just browser the internet and play angry bird.
