Surface looks to be kind of a tablet and ultra-thin laptop combined together. Surface has a 10.6 inch display, weighs less than 1.5 lbs, and is 9.3mm thick. Microsoft writes: "A tablet that's a unique expression of entertainment and creativity. A tablet that works and plays the way you want. A new type of computing. Surface."
It looks great, but as of yet, there's no price or release date attached to Surface. Folks on Twitter are shooting comments like:
-- "Gotta admit, Msft are living up to the hype, this is really good."
-- "Basically, MSFT is killing it w/ their new tablet. Welcome competition to the iPad."
But it's not all positive, as such...
--"Meet the red-headed step-child of tablets....The Surface! Just when you thought it couldn't get any worse. #fail"
