I didn't see any mention of a build in stylus holder on the new Surface Pro 2. It's not a deal breaker for me but I expected them to add one. The magnetic power holder is a joke.
Coulda been great???If they had been smart and gone with an 11.6" screen they would have had room to put the pen inside. I almost think that MS did not go with the bigger screen or a port for the pen simply because they had a bunch of Surface Pro cases they needed to use up. This tells me even MS isn't sure this device will sell and didn't want to commit to a full redesign in case it doesn't.
At this price point with an 11.6" screen I believe MS would have sold the hell out of this to business users. Sadly, 10.6" inches is simply too small for a true laptop replacement. Probably a reason all the other hot new hybrids are 11.6" or higher. A bigger screen would also have made room for a larger internal battery and another usb port with a thinner profile.
To me this oversight is a major fail.
I equate the Surface Pro 2 to MS scoring the tying touchdown with a second to play then missing the extra point to lose. It coulda been great, so so close but MS simply does not get it.
I confess I gave MS credit for more intelligence than they apparently possess in assuming they would not make a Surface Pro 2 so much like the Surface Pro 1. Yep they made it and yep it will fail.Coulda been great???
This coming from the guy who swore MS would never make an SP2?
This form-factor is here to stay for a while.
And my SP1 has completely replaced my laptops.
Repeating the same old drivel over and over again doesn't make it any more true. I have a feeling you'll be eating crow again when the Surface Pro 2 sales numbers are released.I confess I gave MS credit for more intelligence than they apparently possess in assuming they would not make a Surface Pro 2 so much like the Surface Pro 1.
