Look like surface pro got alot of good review
will be totally sold if they lift the OS lock on Surface, same as other W8 laptop
Conflicted now... Lenovo Thinkpad 2 or Surface Pro.
So far haven't read any reviewer switch to Power Saving mode which limits Core i5-3317 to 800Mhz which is make it act like the new 7w SDP Ivy Bridge. Wonder if it'll give 1 extra hour of battery. At 800Mhz, it's still crazy fast!
Conflicted? Really? These are two totally different machines
Thinkpad 2 is small, light, long battery life, but Atom only...biggest drawback for me personally: no great keybard solution like the surface to use it for productivity.
Surface Pro is a full Laptop with loads performance, good keyboard, but bigger, heavier, shorter battery life.
For me the SurfaceRT is the perfect middle ground. Light and allows productivity.
For heavy duty and x86 I still have my Samsung7 Slate...over 1.5 years old, but not much behind a surface pro. Only missing the nifty keyboard solution...
I would have thought the SurfacePro with the new IvyBridge can pull much more battery life than the 7Slate (4hrs on average) but apparently that's not the case.
So I guess the real winner will be the next generation Atom with real firepower. Currently you always have to compromise on something unless you have a perfect fit for your personal use-case.
