Anyone preordering the Microsoft Surface tablet?
Now that Microsoft has opened preorders for the Microsoft Surface and announced pricing options, will any fellow hubbers be preordering one?
I'm still debating which one I want to order, the basic or the Pro. I think it comes down to what you need. I personally don't use my current tablet very often (it sits on my nightstand and works as my alarm clock, lol).
I have been looking for a lighter laptop, so I'm thinking of waiting and seeing how much they charge for the Pro version.
I think the decision really comes down to what you want, and since they haven't released too much on the available apps, the Pro version (which functions more like a laptop) is the more appealing of the two for me.
As much as I would like to have a new 'toy' I do not see being able to snatch up one of these for a while. For that kind of change, $500+ I would hate to buy into something that could end up being a total waste.
But if I had the option to get one I would elect to go all out and grab the 64GB one. There are some features about it that I find more appealing than an Ipad. With the inclusion of a MicroSD card reader I would imagine you could use it for extra storage should you need it. Depending on the ports capabilities you could essentially double the storage space. Another feature I like is the touch cover which serves a dual purpose as protection and a keyboard for easily mobility. Although you can get a similar accessory for an Ipad it was late to the game initially in offering that. Since MS took its time to launch their beast into the wild it plays into the replacement laptop field many people are looking for.
Like MSLewis states above there are some concerns I would have as far as available and viable apps that would appeal to the masses. Both the Apple and Android tablets have a plethora of choices.
