    Hi,

    found this over sveral pages/forums/google-cache. It's a leaked pcmag-review, with some interesting facts about questions asked in numerous threads:

    Sounds nice :)

    Great find, very clever checking the caches. It will be really nice to see these reviews coming flowing out in just a couple of days. The cons are pretty minor and the speakers (most likely) and apps issues can be overcome with software. Pretty short list of things that are wrong with it and of course Surface is just MS's version. The other hardware manufacturers will likely have hardware that addresses those con points in various ways to find what you need (kickstand angle, charging port, etc.)

    As for today, the net is full of reviews. After reading 4 of them, i think i managed to get a picture and that i'm quite ok with most of the drawbacks.
    My main concern remains the ecosystem, using a WP 7.5 i'm aware of that problem ;)

    AnandTech was definitely the best review i''ve read so far. Not too enthusiastic and going into some interesting details.

    I completely agree. Nice to have a review that seems objective.

    David Pogue's review in the NYTimes on the 23rd faulted the Surface for its lack of apps and said there was no NYTimes app, but today Tab Times reported MS had held back announcements of some apps and that NYTimes, Wall Street Journal, Wired and The New Yorker (as well as Tab Times and major newspapers in other countries) have all released apps in the Windows Store.
