windows can grow into hardware. i have never seen any detailed explanation why storage usage keeps going up, and the system is getting slower over time. the best user experiences is always right after the fresh installation. intel hasn't really solved the power issue yet. the combination of Microsoft+Intel for tablet market really needs more effort. positive selling points: pc apps compatibility; MS UI, high performance; negative side: power consumption; price tag; system stability (neither company is successful in embedded systems) rumor said the reason Microsoft didn't offer 16GB model is because the OS+ basic app will take almost all the space in storage. if there is a 16GB model, then it will be very funny when people find out they only have 1GB left for their own data such as video/photo/music, etc.

EREBUS raises a very good question. It was exactly what I went after to experience the Surface. I am impress with the keyboard. Using Word and Excel are very similar to the previous. Switching between tasks using Windows 8 interface is as easy as before. The feel is better through. If you are not familiar with the GUI, Windows 8 has 2 GUIs - the palette type (brand new interface) and the Windows 7 interface. Switching between them is a very intuitive. I'm impressed with the Surface.

I am more interested in how well it does word and excel. It it can do those two well, then I could use it for real work.

A side-by-side comparison with Apple's iPad would be interesting.
