your meme is bad and you should feel bad

Productivity Software on Tablets makes me Laugh! Tablets are nothing more than Portable Underpowered Toys for Media Consumption, such as Web Surfing, reading Emails, watching Movies, wasting your time on Facebook, listening to music, Playing some Angry Bird style games, or when you are alone in the dark, you can enjoy some "Uncensored media". But they are not for doing Productivity work on. Holding a Tablet with one hand while you tap away at a touch screen can become tiresome after awhile & make your tablet holding hand feel like it's burning. & Letting it rest on your lap while you tap at it is not much better for your neck. & if you get one with a Keyboard, you might as well just get a more powerful Laptop/Notebook to do your work on. At least you'll have tons more storage.

My iPad was never very good at anything except play. I can get work done and my Surface and play on it when I'm done. No contest.

Um, I bought a surface 2 Pro, and MS Office isn't exactly 'free'. You get a free trial version, with an option to buy.

It comes with Surface and Surface 2, not Surface 2 Pro.

But? How does that make sense?

I think it's Microsoft's way of trying to convince consumers to give Windows RT a chance. It's a tough sell IMO, though I suppose bundling in Office will help move a few units.

Yea, but why not bundle office on the Surface 2 Pro? That's supposed to be the highest end of the three, right?

Doesn't seem very pro-like.

HA, and it'll still bury the surface.
