I was excited for Surface, but it looks like the pro version won't be out for like 3 or 4 months still. Not really interested in Windows RT since I have Android devices. If I'm going to get a Windows 8 tablet its going to have a core i5 (or better) in it, not an arm processor.
Other companies are beating microsoft to the punch on real workhorse tablets than can actually replace your laptop.
All already have release dates for tablets that will be more powerful than most people's windows 7 machine.
While Windows RT is enough for most people so is a iPad, a Kindle Fire, or an Nexus 7. I don't see Microsoft having a ton of success in the low end $200 tablet sector.
Its got dat keyboard, microsoft word and looks sexy. Seriously though, the colors/look will set it apart from everything else not Apple.
Also, something tells me the Windows marketplace will be really good.
