Microsoft "Microsoft has unveiled a new touch-sensitive coffee table-shaped computer called 'Surface'. Designed to do away with the need for a traditional mouse and keyboard, users can instead use their fingers to operate the computer. Also designed to interact with mobile phones placed on the surface, Microsoft says it will initially sell the unit to corporate customers. These will include hotels, casinos, phone stores and restaurants." Instant update: More details and a video.

I wouldn't buy one. Did you see all those cuts in the video ? IMO they're just trying to sell an unfinished product to take the market. It's what they've always done in the past at least.
