No, actually you don't need to buy the keyboard. It comes with an on-screen version and is usb and bluetooth compatible. So if you have any such keyboard then you don't have to spend any extra money if you choose not to.
the Surface Pro has pretty bad battery life –– about 5 hours –– so it's not very portable.
Official battery life stats are not in but let's continue anyway. Bad battery life compared to what? Other laptops? Nope, it is about (since they use that for the battery life) the same as any other ultra-book i5 laptop. Not very portable? You realize this is a tablet and even more portable than a traditional ultra book right? I mean it is a tablet.
Clearly the way the statements are written are very fair and totally unbiased :LOL:
Come on you people, your being a little hard on those Ifans. Not everybody can deal with a real computer these days. Sometimes a little app is all you can handle. Just wait, Ipad 5 will be out soon and it will be faster and thinner. Ground breaking...no but you can load the Angry Birds app. What more do you want?
Can't wait until Feb 9. My laptop in tablet form and not made out of plastic. Simply fantastic!
Interesting to see that Yarrow hasnt followed up with a post about how no one wants the Pro according to his poll. Nice to see that 52% of the vote said that they will buy the Surface, which is why he is quiet.
