I'm from Cleveland Ohio and MS is having their grand opening of their new store in Beachwood Mall this Saturday. They are having Kelly Clarkson performing a concert to kick off this grand opening. I've been on the fence about the surface... it just seems like too much money to spend. Part of me is "tempted", but I've talked with the MS guys at the Kiosk and they mentioned that the Pro gets really REALLY hot!! I know MS will definitely be pushing this big at TechEd, but I don't know if they'll actually offer discounts.
