    It appears that ZD Net has had a 45mins with the Surface Pro at CES. I can't add a link as the iPad won't let me paste it but highlights of story are;

    * Pen has magnetic connector but not as strong as the keyboard one
    * it runs "surprisingly cool" due to peripheral cooling
    * MircoSD has been moved from under the kick stand to the side

    They state that the Surface Pro is "(it's) shaping up to be the Tablet PC done right, with a mix of hardware and software that should make it attractive to many users".

    Sounds so tempting, but I think I'll wait for the pro 2 or surface book. The larger screens (especially the book) and new processors appeal to me. I just hope it will continue to support all current surface accessories like the type and touch cover because I have a RT.

    Are you using an app as I use web. Doesn't like quoting either.

    As for waiting, I'm fed up of waiting. Pro will do what I want now

    Yeah. It seems that alot of the people who were so critical of the tablet just a short while ago knocking it for battery life or weight or thickness etc are now coming around. I think its going to be my dream tablet. Release day can't get here soon enough for me.
