    Yeah the fanDroids and ifanboys in the comments can't find anything to troll about. Hilarious.

    Great article, and indeed, "this guy gets it", finally someone does on a tech blog.

    Nice. I like the way he has described how it is useful to an everyday user(like me). So, plus one.

    I also had a question..who exactly had made the Surface? I mean the hardware...the physical device?

    Please note that isn't actual review from The Verge. You'll probably see a more comprehensive (and sadly more negative) piece soon.

    I also had a question..who exactly had made the Surface? I mean the hardware...the physical device?
    It's Microsoft designed, but it will be manufactured and assembled in China by companies you wouldn't bother to remember. Pretty much the case with any technology at this stage.

    That's really interesting, and I confess that I myself didn't actually "get it" because I didn't recognize the potential to collapse the tablet and laptop into one. It seems obvious to me know, and I guess that's how MS was approaching the tablet 10yrs before others anyway.

    I have an iPad and literally never use it, mainly because I hate typing on it and I rarely find myself having long sessions where I don't need to type something. So a solution that incorporated a physical keyboard, whether through a "folded" laptop or some docking method, might answer my needs. That said, I'd be concerned with the longevity of the moving pieces.

    Looking forward to seeing what options there will be (I've seen some already).

    Hmm, I am starting to feel bad about trashing on The Verge so much. I guess there are some folks there who aren't biased and present professionally. Hooray for moments I can be proud to be mistaken, lol.

    This is a good review by David Pierce. I'm looking forward to seeing more of his views as we get closer to launch.
