Yes the SP competes will with other CURRENT devices but compared to upcoming tech like the ATIV Q or the XPS 11, it is looking pretty lame. MS better bring it with SP II (if there ever even is one - I mean where is MS talking ambitiously about an SP II? Anyone?). I never denied that SP was "the best athlete in the draft" and not really the player I wanted at the time.
I'm surprised that you would use this argument. At what point do you make a purchase? Is there any doubt that the ATIV Q 2 will be better than the ATIV Q? Should we wait for the inevitable XPS 13 because it makes the XPS 12 look lame? For goodness sake, the SP(1?) just came out 4 months ago. And already folks are all over MS for not releasing any info on the next SP. As for me, I will enjoy my SP until MS, in its' wisdom, decides to release info on the next SP. Until then, I will be very happy with the CURRENT SP.
