So excited about this... Finally, a tablet that I can use Photoshop and Lightroom on! My only concern is the (presumably) fixed 4GB of RAM. I'd love to get 8GB at least, if not 16. Otherwise the specs are great and the price is right for something of that caliber.

Yeah this is one of those products I would like but I can't bring myself to buy another thousand dollar piece of tech.
For what I am doing, just creating legal documents, the RT is more than enough for me. But I would love to have all the features of the Surface Pro.

I was expecting Microsoft to be more aggressive on pricing and knowing how hopeless MS is with their hardware releases anywhere outside USA, it's definite pass for me.
Should have TF810 Vivo tab next month or Transformer Book with thinner body than Surface pro and proper keyboard.

TF810 doesn't really compete with Surface RT as it's X86 device (atom). Transformer Book strength is the design and that it's available in a lot of different configurations. There's 11" version where you can go from i3 to i5, then there's the 13" version where you can get i7 and even discrete gpu with big HDD on the keyboard.

Pass. I'm happy with my RT (shocking, I know). Everyone will know all the specs, archetecture etc but i can't wait for the first "Surface Pro is laggy and/or underpowered" post from someone who was expecting a Cray C2 super computer in tablet form.

I didn't know about the 11" version of the Transformer Book, though really, if a keyboard is the most important thing about a device, it seems an Ultrabook would be a better investment than a tablet. Time will tell :)

I have started thinking of going for Surface Pro as well, if it's available in Germany by January. I mean i'm paying 899 euros for the Vivo tab keyboard combo anyways and while i did pre-order it, i still probably need to wait for week or two. Transformer Book was my first choice back in summer, but damn Asus is crappy when it comes informing customers anything about the Transformer Book, especially the 11" version.

2GB is not enough RAM to effectively use Photoshop, no matter what the rest of your hardware looks like. Yes, it will run it, and even do some basic filters (which redraw slowly), but it's not good for anything more advanced than that. If you're not going to do anything more advanced than that, then why use $900 Photoshop when you can use $0 Instagram or Picasa? I'm actually concerned that 4GB may not be quite enough on the Surface Pro, but we'll see.

But like already said, the whole point of the Z2760 tablets are the stylus, smooth modern UI and compatibility with legacy programs.

i've not seen proof the new Atoms are as performant as the Surface RT without sacrificing battery life. They -should- perform better, but not if battery life is taking a hit. I get 2+ days of use out of my Surface RT with moderate use.
