The SP3 is on its way and from what I've seen there is more interest in talking about it within the circle of current surface users than there is on the outside. Now it is early, and the darned things aren't in stores yet, but at this point the lack of excitement is, well, both unsurprising and earned. However, this could be an interesting opportunity for MS. In introducing a 12" tablet MS can attract some serious numbers in the enterprise market however the really interesting potential, if MS takes this one step further, a 12" screen can be a massive boon if they use a decent GPU in there and sell it as a portable gaming system. Who cares if the GPU will make the product thicker and heavier? Gamers hold gamepads/joysticks/driving yokes, not the screen. Get some more power in there and you have a whole new S.K.U. For the SP and SP2 users keep working on a 10.2" model. For some of us it's a perfect size. Even though I may want a 12" screen I see no compelling reason to upgrade to the SP3 as the hardware is hardly differentiated from its predecessor and to be honest, I would never buy an expensive device without seeing it, hearing other people's experience with it and how the producer follows up with updates and consumer concerns. Keep working on the Mini. With the superior inking ability of the SP2's Wacom tech, it has the potential to be a fantastic tool for personal assistants. Maybe Alsop was correct in nixing the model, but don't give up on it. Keep working on it and develop it to a specific niche/task. As for the RT, well maybe the fact that MSFT can make a 'Pro' model as thin and as light as the Rt/Surface while increasing screen size is telling us that there is no need for an RT/Surface model. Just my opinion. No one product can be everything to everybody. We all know this. There needs to be some differentiation in hardware according to what market you are trying to reach. It is admirable that MSFT has the best hardware configuration for the enterprise realm, however the company has to refocus it's energies and dump the 'Laptop Replacement' spiel. It's old, and it's never going to happen with a single tablet model. In other words, MS has to stop creating models based on processor/RAM and SSD. Instead create models with function in mind. Enterprise, Gaming, Home, The ULTIMATE MOFO... whatever. The general public may understand that 512 GB is more than 256 GB, however they MAY NOT understand what it is they need. Help them out. Stop the RT/Surface development and stick to the PRO as you are segregating your own consumer base, and there is really nothing now that you can do with the RT that you can't do on a PRO.. Matter of fact just call it Surface and add Enterprise, Gamer, Home, THE ULTIMATE MOFO... If MS really wants to do something special, to REALLY make it stand out from the rest... Make the damned machines upgradeable. Spending up to $2k is too much for a throw away device. Oh, and for the love of God, Please.. PLEASE ... P-L-E-A-S-E make a silo for the pen. How many times do you have to be asked? And for Kayzee, put that damned windows button back on the bottom bezel. I got your back on this K.
