Interesting review of the surface pro by the penny arcade, who finds it a pretty good option for a content production use case, mainly because it has a proper digitizer.
The more I read these, it’s interesting to note how people tend to talk about how surfaces don’t make good laptops, because of the kickstand design. Maybe the surface is really a desktop / tablet hybrid. All your mobile stuff you do in tablet mode. All your other stuff in desktop mode, as in, on a desk (or table). None of this typing on the couch non-sense.
I find it an interesting way to think about the design. A trade off that may almost make sense in many ways.
