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.

Android is ok for phone, but not for tablet. I already have tegra2 android laptop. It was only useful to install linux.
Surface is pretending to be a solid product, unlike yet another device to run unsupported geek OS.

True that I mostly use it with linux, but as a linux laptop it fits the decent ARM laptop (with a nice keyboard to start with)

If you unlock the bootloader on the Transformer, you can install the most mature desktop operating system available for ARM: GNU/Linux.
