I passed on the 1st generation MS SurfacePro due to battery life and a few negative reviews.
Quote from Cdntrader:
Anyone get a Surface Pro yet?
Still none available. Maybe wait for second iteration. Seem to be some issues with the first.
Decided not to succumb to first adopter syndrom on a product which was destined to be improved, either by MS or competitors.
Also was not too impressed with the need to re-purchase my office suite for the MS product. Gave me a sour taste in mouth that it wouldn't support legacy programs, tipped the scales to abstain from procuring at the present time.
Almost grabbed the Lenovo yoga, unfortunately I didn't like the idea of the keyboard being exposed when in Tablet mode.
I am confident that the next generation Win8pro Intel based tablet from either MS or one of its competitors [Lenovo/Asus/Samsung] will produce a refined product.
I am just going to wait for the 2nd generation products to be released, at which time I believe we will have many viable options.
Main purpose for intel based Windows Tablet is to be able to run IB and Buttontrader. Stylus will be a key factor in using buttontrader. Other than that don't really need another Tablet.
