Surface Pro 128 GB Immediately Sells Out
I think Blackberry really needs to release Playbook 10.1 before its too late. It has taken me aback that the Surface Pro is selling well on its launch date... So, the battle for the 3rd place begins between Blackberry and Microsoft.. Go Blackberry!

LOL! That is is. It's a dysfunctional, heavy, incredibly poor battery-life PC/tablet, with an awful keyboard. It has a low resolution, small screen, and is nowhere near as functional as a laptop. It is top-heavy, unbalanced (in terms of actual lap use), and not flexible in functional use. After keyboard, it is nearly the price of two very nice on sale ultrabooks. So glad it is another sellout like the RT was!

No, this is part of the global media conspiracy against Microsoft.
No wait, that's against BlackBerry.

The surface pro has little to no impact on ipads, android tablets or future playbooks, it is competing with ultrabooks and macbook airs because the reality is that it is basically just the former of those two itself anyway.

I think the Surface RT never had tremendous sales because consumers were aware that the Pro would be "Coming Soon", I know that's why I waited (although I ended up with a Note 10.1 instead ). I think the Surface Pro is going to be a huge hit. Despite the negative reviews (of all things STILL comparing it to an iPad lulz), the hardware speaks for itself. A complete, full running computer in a tablet form. Battery? I'm sure it still will last as long as most laptops unplugged anyways, so to me that's a moot point. Sure, it might not last as long as a conventional tablet, but convential tablets can't run near the same software either. Personally, I think it's a great idea, and will only get improved upon in the time to come.

Surface Pro 128 GB Immediately Sells Out
So what? I still think that tablets aren't good for much else besides browsing the web. Noone who wants to get real work done would choose a Surface over a laptop

It's amazing how during a terrible economy - every new tech item seems to sell out! it's truly amazing.
I remember how the surface RT sold out and now it dominates the tablet sector outselling the competition... oh wait.

In any case, that doesn't change the Surface as a product which was so highly flawed from the beginning so as to be hopeless. I had some good discussions and thoroughly explained my reasoning back before RT - which I also predicted as a failure both in design and in sales. What happened to the MS fanboy I debated...he had a silly face pic....and a funny name....good egg though. In any case, I know we have many MS fans here...though many of them simply seem driven by an Anti-apple stance...which explains the ridiculous allegations of Apple fanaticism! LOL. You have to love it when people are so biased THEY keep bringing up the company they hate, when nobody else is event takling about them! If anyone thinks Surface is a good product for them, by all means by it! LOL

RT was someone's joke. No idea why they released it.
@BThunderW is correct; 128GB is the minimal (usable) amount of storage. It is a very nice hybrid tablet/laptop.
I picked one up yesterday and am shocked at how fast and responsive it is.Thorsten Heins: "We have a clear shot at being the No. 3 platform in the market" - 09/25/2012
