Surface baby. If that thing has HD4000/trinity on the pro model it will be a day 1 purchase.

Being able to play SC2 and DOTA on my tablet with the KB and a bluetooth mouse :)

[citation][nom]lradunovic77[/nom]Tablet market will declined. There was initial hype with Apple iPad but that's all to it.[/citation]

MS Surface (Pro version) is a fully functional windows computer. It makes both tablets and ultrabooks kinda obsolete, as it seems to be the perfect hybrid of them

Meanwhile everyone that buys a laptop or desktop with Windows 8 will push Windows 7 downgrade sales. lol

Basicly what it's coming down to is a tale of two OSes Windows 8 for tablet based systems and Windows 7 for desktop and Laptop systems. I wouldn't be surprised if Windows 9 has two diff version because of this. A Windows 9 Tablet Edition for those with tablets and touch screens and a Windows 9 PC Edition for those with desktops and laptops.

Well, a netbook could be called a fully functional Windows computer as well, depending on your needs really.

The Surface Pro is a bit too thick and heavy to be a nice tablet, and not quite suited for actual serious work due to its crippled ULV processor and a netbook-sized screen. Sure you can technically run Photoshop/CS on it, but who's going to drop $700 for a license and then squint at the 10" screen? Not that many people I bet.
