I'm thinking in getting a Surface Pro and I'd be glad to get some advise and opinions against other devices. For instance the closer ones are Acer's Iconia W700 and Samsung Smart PC Pro 700T, but also there are other devices like the Vaio Duo 11 and the XPS 12.
I think the main point against Iconia W700 is the battery life, but the Surface has Win8 Pro, microSD and a digitizer. The Smart PC Pro is spec-wise more similar, the lack of 3G in the Surface doesn't matter to me, but is more expensive and looks cheap.
What do you think?

Sony let me choose a laptop for my travels and I chose the Vaoi duo 11. It is actually quite awesome. Surprisingly lighter than I thought it would be and not that thick. I use it for everything now. Keyboard is a bit small though but other than that, its awesome.

the well designed keyboard and digitizer is what sends me to the pro.
I mean, if you offered me a standard 10" ultrabook, even with a touchscreen... I wouldn't really see the need. a good removable keyboard and pen lets me differentiate the surface from anything else in my mind.

its a novelty...
you have to contact them to buy it...
Ive yet to see a hands on review... with real dimensions/performance.
It claims a removable battery and all this hardware, 1200p screen... and its the weight of an RT.
Unless Samsung, iconia, and surface have little lead weights in them, I would love to know how this unknown company kupa has managed to exceed the capabilities of the heavyweights.

They are being shipped through www.dynamism.com for the UK they start at £840 ($1099) for the basic model - same i5 as the Pro but with 8gb ram - up to £1220 ($1599) for the all singing and dancing 3G capable i7 with 8gb and windows 8 pro. Just did a conversion using latest exchange rate - looks like were getting shafted in the UK with the 23% VAT - £840 works out to $1320. This country sucks balls

Kupa UltraNote Windows 8 modular tablet hands-on (video)
Im reserving judgement until a proper review appears, but its worth considering if there are no dealbreakers in the review. Just because its a small company doesnt mean its not come up with a new way of doing things that none of the big fish have picked up on.

Maybe the lack of a hardened glass, a plastic case and a sligthly smaller screen accounts for the weight difference.
