      I'll have to head to the local MS store on June 6th (I believe) and try one out. Sometimes I wonder if MS would have more success if they took the Apple approach and didn't have ~20 different configurations to chose from (* 2 if you have to decide whether to buy the keyboard or not).- and instead just offer something like 8 (i5/i7 - 8/16GB - 128/256GB and include the keyboard)...sometimes too much selection will just cause the consumer to lose interest (at least it does for me). I could go spend anywhere from $800 to over $2000 - and no matter what I would buy I would feel like I either overspent and got more than I needed, or didn't buy enough and wish I would have got the next model up.  Similar issue with the Lumia phones - it would be nice if they just had a few models instead of a bunch of models that are similar just built for different providers.
