My biggest problem with the surface

ok, just to be clear i am stoked about the the surface pro, im going to college next year and i think its gonna be my main computer. However i have a huge problem with it being a replacement for a laptop, it dosent work in my lap. The kickstand and meshy keyboard dose not sound all that appealing in my lap. does anyone know if their is a hinge base dock in the works or a competitor launching something similar?
