I'd rather have the Surface Pro. There are things I've wanted to try for a while on a touchscreen that would be easy to do on the Pro because it can run all the software that's already out there. If I got an RT tablet I would have to wait for someone to write an RT app that does the same thing and there's little hope it'll ever happen.
I don't see much happening with RT any time soon when it comes to being able to anything other than content consumption. If you want to get anything done you still need "real" Windows.
I'll have to wait for good reviews and detailed specs to see if it's a good ultrabook as well as a tablet. I'm concerned about the low amount of RAM it has and whether the onboard sound works well with ASIO4ALL.
Yes, the iPad vs Surface add is really well done but notice that the iPad is being used to create music while the Surface is just playing music. In other words, we need serious tuch enabled music creation apps for Windows RT/8.
I already know about Jordan Rudess' apps that should come out soon but there needs to be lots more AND MIDI in and out support on all of them.
Great extra information... that was going to be my next question.
I was wondering if it would disable to registration of the previous OS you're updating from. I'm glad I didn't do it with my Win7 DVD because I'm still using it. Once I get the upgrade disk I'll first try using an XP disk I don't care about. I guess I could also use my Vista disk because it's not like I'm ever going to use it again.
I actually went to Staples twice already and they didn't have any. They also only had one touchscreen Win8 machine but it was password protected so I couldn't even try it the way it was meant to be used.
I like the new setup with Paul in the little box on the left. For some reason Paul seems to have gotten more informative now that he's doing the show remotely. Maybe it's because he has less distractions.
