    already ordered mine, the first wave (32gb without touch cover) have already sold out in the US. I ended up getting the 64GB version (could only get the black cover though), Might get a 64GB microSD card too for movies/music/pics etc.

    I'm waiting for the Surface Pro. The Surface RT that is now on pre-order is the ARM one that according to Microsoft's own comparison page "Works exclusively with apps available in the Windows Store."

    Sod that.

    Also, this makes a compelling argument (though if the sell-out reports are true it is wrong on one prediction): Don't Preorder Microsoft Surface

    i would get the pro if it was released at the same time but to wait 3 months is to long,
    i want it now so it can partner my nokia lumia 920 thats released on the first week of november
    but i still might buy the pro aswell (more money then sense)

    I really like the look of this aside from win8 (not 100% keen on metro), Baby on the way has put the clamp on my daft spending on gadgets though for the next 18 years onwards I think, at least if I talk with the mrs about it

    The Surface tablets are arm based. The Arm based version of W8 cant join a domain.

    The thought that struck me with the "hands off" approach until launch was that MS aren't happy with the quality of Windows 8 apps and want until the last moment to get them ready.

    Hardware I doubt is a massive gamble unless they've messed up something simple like battery / screen. However Windows 8 itself and the offerings in the Windows Store would be a concern, especially on the RT where you can't install anything else.

    Are basic apps like Facebook sorted for 8 yet as the Store so far has looked rather barren. Personally I'd like a Surface Pro but it's not worth 800+ it sounds like MS want to charge for it... I could get an equivalent laptop for less and live without the touchscreen.
