Exactly. How about we wait to see the 2 versions of the Surface before trying to decide how good it is.
Based on what Microsoft has shown so far it seems that most of the interest is in the higher end Surface that's aiming to compete with ultra books as opposed to tablets. I think they'll probably do well with a niche market. I think a big part of the reason the iPad has been successful with most people is that it doesn't try to be both a tablet and a laptop. That's not all people. I would expect many people here would want both tablet and laptop in a single device. However I don't think it would appeal to the masses.
As far as the lower end Surface that will be tablet only, we'll have to see it to know. It's going to need to do something significantly better than the iPad to draw meaningful marketshare away. Whether that's a much better price or a better experience or a strong preference for Metro over iOS.
Still all of the above is just guesswork based on a single presentation. When the Surface is actually being sold and used we'll know more.
