    Microsoft is so huge that they can focus on more projects than all hardware manufacturers combined.

    I take it Acer didn't make the initial cut for Win8 tablets?

    Yeah, I'm with Ben. Acer isn't exactly going to come out and say they think it will/could work. They're scared it will do well.

    Sounds like ACER is taking the Surface way too lightly, ACER can only dream of having a product like this.

    As they say, the proof is in the pudding. I don't know why they say that, or who, for that matter. :)

    I say that sometimes, so I guess I'm a they. Can't tell you the meaning though ;)

    Silly comments by Acer. In reality MS is not getting in the hardware business, it isn't like they are suddenly going to try and become the next Dell. Even if the Surface is supremely successful MS is only going to make one or two models with no interest in becoming a hardware manufacturer. The only reason for Acer to be afraid is if they can't make their own compelling products in which case they deserve to fail. Fortunately they do make compelling products so why lose focus on what one competitor (MS) is doing. MS hardware is the least of their hardware competition concerns.

    I am sure many people are looking at the Surface and would clearly rather go out and buy an Aspire Netbook :p
