    I've been looking forward to the Surface Pro for a long time, got to play with one yesterday and now I'm super excited to replace my 3 year-old laptop. Found this through bing. I registered since this place will only get busier and there's lots of discussion of accessories happening now. I did a thorough (well, 2 hours hands on in a Best Buy) test and noticed some quirky differences between the touch and type pad covers' trackpads, I'm going to the accessories forum now to share.

    Welcome reptilian. I think you are in for a big upgrade from a 3 year old laptop. I was checking out the bench marks in the ubergizmo review posted in another thread and the Surface is powerful even among the other ultrabooks. Very impressive.

    Oh I'm sure, I've done lots of cpubenchmark comparisons! Thanks.

    I'm going to start a new thread about that now. I liked them both for different things, but I settled on the touch cover (surprisingly) due to a right click flaw on the type cover. Otherwise, for typing I would've bought the type cover but I think I'd use the mouse more (Photoshop, etc.).

    I know of no such flaw. If so it would be a huge flaw for Microsoft.
