    I think these are going to be a catastrophic failure. If you could run existing windows programs on them they'd be great, but they won't.

    They should concentrate on the Win7 style interface for desktops and laptops and WP8 style OS for tablets and phones, trying to mash it together into something that's frankly not very nice to use with a touch screen is suicidal.
    There already is a WP8-style tablet OS - Windows RT!

    I think MS are smart to leverage the inevitable ubiquity of Windows 8 to introduce Modern UI to masses.

    Personally, I'm done with the Intel/desktop experience at home. My decent-spec laptop runs too damn hot, is too damn loud, runs increasingly slow, and isn't portable enough.

    Surface with Windows RT is the simplified, versatile hybrid tablet I've been waiting for, and it will sync nicely with my Xbox 360 and Windows 8 phone as well.

    My only gripe is the lack of 3/4G and maybe standalone 64GB model option if you prefer the type over the touch cover, otherwise, looks good.
