I'm sure the results are similar on bing.com.

and you realize that Microsoft's answer to the the tablet question has a long, long way to go. Perhaps trying to release a hybrid that fails to succeed at either being a tablet or a laptop was the wrong approach. Give me a competitively priced surface PRO with good battery life, a good screen, and lightweight, and give me a Surface Tablet thats light, has a great screen, great battery life, and a thriving app ecosystem. Given that the latter isn't going to happen, I'd be happy with just the former.
