    Exactly.. You would think now that tablets have been invented now books, magazines, **** even good ol conversation on flights were all banned and laptops and tablets were required to be used from flight beginning to end. The battery life of the Pro is good to me. I'm not staring at a tablet for 5 hours straight.. I doubt anyone else is either. Talk about Unhealthy.

    The only time I would need an electronic device for more than four hours without plugging it in is when I use a Garmin Edge for a long bicycle ride.

    I will be developing on VS2012. Your eyes take some time to get used to the smaller screen. Documentation can be handwritten or typed, and watch movies at your own discretion

    The screen size is not too bad, but one thin you have to take into account. You get a full 1920x1080 resolution, but scaling is set to 150% by default. If you set it to 100%, then you get the true real estate for the resolution. The drawback is that the type is pretty small.

    I dont understand the last line(Type is pretty small). You mean type cover is small?

    It can get warm, but I've have not had it get hot, nor uncomfortable to hold.

    I have run mine under quite a bit of load for several hours (yes, it will do it) and it gets warm at best. It never gets uncomfortable to hold or place in your lap.

    Amazing thing, my battery life seems to be getting better with each day. It actually reported I had 9+ hours of use left this morning (10:30am), it is 3:30pm now and I still have 78% remaining. Granted, I am not using it the entire time, just using it the same way I would my normal laptop.

    Actually scaling is set to 125% by default, not 150%.
