I got to play with a surface pro last night at the mall. Dear Microsoft... here you go.[^]
The pen with it felt kinda cheap. The machine itself felt solid and seemed very responsive. The store I was at had already given out all of their reservation cards. Guess I'll show up when they open Saturday and take my chances.
I bought the 64GB model which, at the time, came with the touch cover (black). It's a great little keyboard. I'm not quite as fast or accurate on it as I am on a full keyboard, but it works well. I'm typing this response on it, as a matter of fact. I actually spend as much time with the keyboard detached as I do with it in place. But it's great to have when I don't want to use the on-screen keyboard.
The better battery life of the RT is a selling point for me. I figured I'd buy the RT to test my apps with and pick up a Pro at some point, but when I'm on the go the RT does everything I need, so I'll spend less and buy a nice desktop machine. Heck, with the remote desktop app, I can sit in my living room and run desktop apps on my laptop which is in another room. I've done that more than once.
