Windows Gabe, one of the two guys behind Penny Arcade, has reviewed the Surface Pro - as an artist. He's in love with it. "Sketching with the Stylus in Sketchbook was awesome. It's important to note that you CAN lay your hand on the screen while you draw without messing up your work. There was no brush lag at all and the pressure sensitivity worked perfectly. The stylus itself felt exactly like drawing on my Cintiq except that the Surface screen is smooth whereas the Cintiq screen has a bit of texture to it." I'm no artist, so I got a Surface RT, but I'm loving it too. The tablet/laptop combination just works. My ZenBook and Nexus 7 have been off and in storage since the day I got the RT.

IMHO Microsoft would do well to add stylus - support to Surface RT -- the battery life on the Pro is just abysmal and how it gets hot is not terribly comfortable, either, whereas the RT gets quite a decent amount of utility from its battery.

Not that I would buy either of them myself, I'm waiting for the 2nd generation of Galaxy Note 10.1 to see how it and the Surface Pro stack against each other.
