David Pogue's NYT review:

"Are you getting it? This is a PC, not an iPad."

The 1024 pressure levels, tilt-sentive digitizing screen can use UP prefix Wacom pens.

"A stylus — when it’s an option, not a requirement — is a big win for a tablet. You can write block and cursive on the Surface Pro (great when you’re standing up) and you can make Art with it. Why do so few people draw on their notebooks or even their iPads? Because it’s a miserable experience. Sketching with the Surface Pro was such a pleasure that it quickly stopped being a test of the precision and responsiveness of the system and became simple playtime."

The storage space issue:

The other main concern, battery life, will soon be a non-issue as MS has hinted at external power sources, possibly in a keyboard, coming soon:
