    Do you think technology like the Surfaces are a guys toy much more so than the girls? Maybe you guys that have a girlfiend or a wife can help answer this question.

    My gf really enjoyed it. But her enjoyment was irrelevant because she was long ago sucked into apple. She didn't find anything guy toy about it, and when an MS salesman showed her one, he and I both mocked her ipad a little bit, ok, that's a massive understatement haha. But no matter what the device does, its still not an ipad. I should add she's a digital artist, but ipad (2) still wins for her somehow.

    In my own experience I find the Apple cult very strong amongst women. Maybe the apple logo on their devices reminds them of Hello Kitty?

    Did you ever take note on how the smaller Apple notebooks I see used by women look like make-up cases when closed?

    I'm beginning to get the feeling that you either don't talk to many women or are just very sexist?

    Did I strike a nerve? Why did you make your crude analogy with the Pen?

    I was trying to get a feel as to whether ladies get into computers as much as guys do.

    IMO Apple products have a greater WAF than Microsoft /other devices and might be a factor for their popularity among woman. It is an enviable Design and Marketing strategy , which I believe is deliberate, and should be emulated to some degree by Microsoft. JMTC

    I was at Best buy this morning and there was couple of females appear to mother and daughter. They bought SF3. The blue shirt dude was helping them setting it up.

    My wife has used the SP2 and now the SP3 as her default machine for the last year, she also has a Dell Venue 8. She loves computers but you'll never find her on a forum discussing them...
