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.

The ASuS Transformer tablet with keyboard dock still got the closest in this form factor. I have one of the first generation (tf101) and it's a great device. I really like it. My daughter likes it even more and has taken it. She's 5 now, and has had the tablet since I got it, a little over a year ago now.

The only thing ASuS flubbed on that was the keyboard itself, but playing with some of the newer keyboard docks I think it was just a 1st generation device problem.

Sure, it's not full laptop OS, and it doesn't try to be, it's an Android tablet after all. But in my mind it proves the form factor to be viable.

So while the Surface Pro may be a flop, I'd really like to see how reviews of things like HP's Envy X2 with Windows 8 compares. It might be it's the Surface Pro hardware that's the problem.

Love my tf101 after fiddling with linux on, it I also installed droidEdit on it and do some of m. coding work on it. It is like a laptop that could last for days.

The only part of it I dislike is the touchpad (too small, and the button is tooo clicky ). Apart for games, it pretty much covers most of my computing needs.
