Looks nice. I cant wait to test out that Keyboard.

Things i think are great: Sturdy design, ample storage (on the Win8 version), |/O ports.

Things i am not sure on: Kickstand, keyboard.

Things i am disapointed in: 16:9 aspect ratio

Look ... the 16:9 AR seems like a good choice, it matches HDTV standards; i.e. movies and tv shows will fit nicely on the screen ... when in landscape orientation! but put the tablet in portrait orientation and BOOM you realize why Apple went with a 4:3 AR. It just makes more sense for a device that is constantly shifting between landscape and portrait orientations

Wouldn't any new tablet be geared towards people that don't have one now? Would any one switch from one brand to another, especially if they ripped all of their music to, let's say iTunes. Seems like there would have to be a really compelling reason to switch.

I know, funny right? Nothing against Apple products, it's nice to see Microsoft back in the game though.
