Consider this anecdotal information, but the other day I went to Best Buy and they had a Pro and an RT side by side on a table. I thought it would be a decent time to do a comparison on the screens, as that was initially one of my concerns with the RT. While you can definitely notice the HD resolution on the Pro, I can't say the difference between the two screens was overwhelming. The most noticeable difference was on text, but even then it wasn't an out of this world difference, more like an extra level of sharpness, and the RT screen compared well even when zooming in. Again, the Pro screen is definitely nicer, but I was impressed at the way the RT screen held up in comparison. Additionally, I tested timing the transitions when opening the web browser, the store, email app, etc... This is where the Pro shined as applications generally opened faster and transitioned quicker. But again, the timing was not life altering, in most cases it was less than a second difference, but it did feel much snappier in general. I like the Pro, but the increased size, weight, heat, and reduced battery life is not enough to make me switch. After living with the RT this long, I can't believe what a raw deal its been getting in comparison to other tabs. I am trying to stay unbiased, but this little machine is turning me into a fanatic! Its turned into my primary tool for browsing, email, gaming, movies, and general content creation. I hope the platform continues to be supported by app developers.
