Who needs a MS tablet when there are apps in Android that open all their docs and allow you to edit and create for LESS the price?

This will die. They should have thought of this back when Ipad 1 came out and Android was still young.

The Surface Pro is more a PC than tablet. It runs on Intel 4th-gen Haswell CPUs.

I'd love to have one, but not at that price. I use Office for work and having a fully functioning copy on a tablet would be amazing.

It may be more PC than tablet, but once you add the peripherals to the overall cost of it, it more than the laptop and PC and would be more susceptible to theft than the prior mentioned. And simply put, it's not designed for the basic consumer market, it's strictly business oriented which is fine, but even a business has to justify the cost when compared to the gain and the other options on the market that match it for function and cost much less with the same quality.

Aiming it for corp business will kill it because the consumer market, those without a business, drive the portable electronics market. A business will want to save money whenever possible and will go for the most cheapest and easiest to repair and or replace. I'm not thinking that this will be either of those.

I agree. I mentioned before that it needs to be priced competitively with comparable laptops, not convertible laptops which it is now.
