    That is a possibility, especially since Intel's Mooly Eden dresses like Samuel L. Jackson.

    The latest rumours point to a late May/early June release. Intel pushed the date back most likely due to the lack of competition from AMD.

    Thus proving that Intel would still be selling 8086 CPUs for $2k if they could, progress be damned.

    Has anyone used both keyboards? Might have to buy without trying, which is a pain. At the moment is was thinking about the type keyboard as it is more like the keyboard I currently use.

    If you have one jump along to your local John Lewis - the one in reading has both types on display.

    I've got both keyboards, got it with the Touch keyboard initially, and it is usable, but you're not entirely sure whether it's registered the key press, so it's not as good as the Type keyboard, which is more like a laptop keyboard and far easier...

    Going to buy the next one without a keyboard and pass on the Touch keyboard with it...

    Surface Pro sales begin on 9th February in the US and Canada, starting at $899 « The Verge

    Microsoft is finally naming a date for its Surface Pro launch today: February 9th. The software giant may have missed its January release date promise, but the Windows 8-powered tablet will be available to purchase next month from retailers in the US and Canada. Microsoft is "taking a phased approach" with Surface Pro availability that may disappoint some international customers. "It will be available initially in the US and Canada with additional markets to follow in the coming weeks and months," says a spokesperson.

    Microsoft's latest Surface tablet runs on a full version of Windows 8, meaning it will support existing desktop applications in addition to the new Windows 8-style ones. The Surface Pro is similar to Microsoft's Surface RT tablet on the exterior, with a 10.6-inch screen and support for Touch and Type Covers. However, pen support and a Full HD display with an Intel Core i5 processor means this tablet is significantly better specs wise. Earlier this month The Verge got an early look at Microsoft's Surface Pro tablet. We were particularly impressed with the display and the accuracy of the pen that Microsoft has supplied with this tablet. There's some trade offs with the Surface Pro compared to the RT, with an increased thickness and weight combination, but the speed and desktop apps support may make up for that.
    $899 translates to approx. £570 ex. VAT (or £680 inc. VAT).

    Yay, another phased approach meaning if it does not do really well in the US they won't bother anywhere else even if there is a market. They really know how not to drum up hype and support.

    At least that's better than Google's approach where you have to spend months F5'ing their Nexus 4, 7 & 10 webpages hoping 'Sold Out' will change back to 'In Stock' and that their webservers don't crash during the 30 second window you have to place the order.

    That process is nowhere near as disapointing as when you actually get the device.

    If for once we get a direct price translation I'd be very interested - that said knowing the usual rip-off UK pricing it'll probably be another £100 on top taking it to £799 or above
