Windows And there we are - the Surface Pro reviews are in. Reading through them all, there's clearly a common theme, and it's not particularly positive. We're a few months in now, so I think we can finally call it: Windows 8 and Surface are the wrong way to go.

Really? Replace a Nexus 4 with a Surface Pro?
Why use a smartphone when you can use a 4 hour battery tablet/notebook to make calls with Wifi, right?

BTW
Nexus 4 350.00 + Nexus 7 200.00 + Chromebook 250.00 = 800.00
The surface pro goes from 900 to 1100

edit: I think I got it, the other way around ;)

Same crappy OS/software story made by a reseller who cannot change the underlying systematic problems.

Asus Transformer?


I've got the TF700 with keyboard, it's replaced my laptop which I've gotten rid of. My desktop does the heavy lifting and when I'm out and about I'm on the Transformer (actually on it now). The insane battery life, light, very functional it's almost perfect for my needs. Heck I can use a serial usb dongle to connect up to hardware when I need, I seriously don't need a lappy. Still need my desktop and there's no way it'll replace the desktop anytime soon.
