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.

I agree that the charger, and its cable are the most nagging point of the eee pad transformer (if only there was some ). But apart from that, I don't use android on this anymore, and as a linux laptop, it's pretty great, can last 2 days on battery, have a C/C++ compiler handy, and also mono for some cross platform coding compiling.

The storage is quite slow, and the 1Gb RAM (shared with video) is very limiting. But I love it overall.
