Windows So, the Microsoft announcement - taking place as I write this, 01:45 in my timezone - turns out to be a bigger deal than expected. Microsoft just announced it's going full-on hardware - the company announced a new tablet called 'Surface', and boy, is this thing something to behold. Microsoft's hardware partners? They're not happy right now. Update: Here's Microsoft's official Surface site. I believe someone coined the phrase 'sexy as a succubus' in the comments about Vizio? Stealin' it! Update II: They aren't just taking the iPad head-on - this is a straight-up MacBook Air competitor.

It makes for a great demo. I loved it initially. The small bugs get to you.

That, and ASUS stock roms are painfully slow and unoptimized. If you try to go custom ROM the dock starts fucking up because it uses custom ASUS drivers.

The thing is just way to slow to be a dual core or quad core device. Its unbelievable how laggy the thing gets.

Then there's the stupid non standard charger. Good luck charging it with a wall piece that's not made by ASUS. It'll take you 8 hours to get from 0-10% battery. No. Lie. Treat your charger like gold.


One thing I will note, with or without the dock the battery life is superb.
