    Microsoft Surface Pro (P)Review

    The Verge got an early look at CES: Surface Pro: an in-depth look at Microsoft's super tablet | The Verge

    Not sure if anyone else is looking forward to a tablet solution with full enterprise compatibility? Based on that article, I'd be concerned about cost, size and weight - it seems more like a laptop replacement than the type of tablet you'd give to a class full of students. Nice to have a full desktop OS in tablet form though!

    Cheers,
    Chris

    It isn't a handheld tablet really - but to me that isn't an issue. I've never seen a single person use a tablet in any other position than on their legs or on a table. So, weight and size don't seem that much of an issue to me. I'd be more worried about battery life.

    You'd get sore arms if you were playing Temple Run on it though.

    Agreed, 5 hours isn't going to do much good in a school unless you have some kind of docking trolley/case.
