    But I don't know how many times I read articles recommending Microsoft to drop the Surface. No Just articles, even comments from some other companies' CEO.

    It'll be interesting to see what of that revenue is actually profit. Could help offset their record-setting losses to date for the Surface product line.

    I think those estimates are low, and don't represent the kind of increase Id expect for the quarter.

    Yeah, I got four other people, who are studying for the board exam, to buy it! It's a very easy sell, for students anyway.

    Must be your region or something -- I've shown it to Apple users, they think it's neat, but wouldn't in a million years think of switching. Best tool for the job I guess...

    Change the logo to Apple, then all apple fans will buy one.

    Well, the Ipad and Mac are growing in popularity every year, don't think that will change. Microsoft still has a lot of work to do to stay ahead in the "Surface Class" space. If they don't keep improving and getting more features, there will be a time when Apple will finally release something similar, and whether it is better or not, the Surface line will get swept up in the I-Surface tidal wave.

    That may be a long way off, or it could be an upcoming Apple announcement...but I do think there is a lot more positive conversation around the Surface (pro 3) than ever before and continually becoming more impressive to others who see and try the device. This despite the onslaught of articles to take it down at the beginning (The Verge "who is this for???" type articles, and "compromises everywhere"), The surface was always going uphill. Maybe it hasnt gotten to the top of the hill, but it's close.

    This reminds me of a late night show where they brought the iphone 4 out to the streets and handed it to random people and told them it was an Iphone 5.....they would say things like "wow its amazing...definitely faster....and love the larger screen".

    it was hilarious.

    Indeed good news for Microsoft. And it follows my personal relatively frequent sightings of SP3 in coffee shops, cafeterias or other public places where people tend to use electronic devices. I don't think I ever saw a SP1 or 2 anywhere.
