    Anyone knows if the Surface Pro has the WiDi capability (Intel wireless display)?
    Try to search around but got no info, even 2 weeks before launch.

    Because it doesn't have. The specifications were quite clear.

    It is strange that the wifi alliance miracast site has the Microsoft Surface listed as certified as of September. Since the RT doesn't have it, I assume it is the Surface Pro? Hope it is included since this is the deal breaker feature for me personally.

    You realize that WiDi is just Intel's version of wireless display right? It might be a convenience to have WiDi as a branded feature but if it is a deal breaker there other ways to send video and sound to a display wirelessly.

    Edit: Also the Surface certificate only appears to be for WMM, WiFi- Protected Setup - PIN and Wi-Fi Direct. Miracast Source is missing. For comparison here is an Intel chip certified as a Miracast Source (see bottom half center column). http://certifications.wi-fi.org/pdf_certificate.php?cid=WFA16349
