Surface vs 11" Air

I think the Surface is a great device but its suffers from being more than a tablet but not quite a laptop. It kind a falls somewhere in the middle. Microsoft would be better off creating a device like the air with a touch screen. 11" or 13", very thin, touch enabled, i7 processor, 256gig ssd, 8gig of ram Then continue to create the surface but make it a true tablet, like remove the usb port and make it thinner or even 7" maybe. Come on Microsoft the recipe has as already been developed by apple... get with it! I'm rooting for you but you really make it hard...
