I'd like to see its capabilities of running Steam games. I have my desktop and no laptop. If this badboy can run Civ and a few other games I'd need for quick LAN parties, I'm in!

I already have the Surface2 and love it, but idk if I'd need both if i splurge for the Pro3...

Nice video! Surface Pros always catch my attention when I see people use them. As an observer, it's an interesting product to watch develop.

Outside of C_BS TV shows and online videos I've yet to see anyone use a Surface "in the wild".

I've seen quite a few of them already. My old university campus had quite a few, they were useful in the IT Dept, and they are great for taking to meetings.

I began using one as a web designer to showcase proposals, pitch ideas, and take note in meetings. Surface RT's are even superior to Android and Apple tablets due to the fact that you can use full programs and admin features. There are many other reasons for Android and Apple tablets to be superior, but if Microsoft could make their tablets cheaper and put in some decent graphics they'd have a rock solid tablet.

There is definitely a potential fad aspect to Surface, but when I see people using Surface they say it's because they find it useful. Most people I know who use Macbooks around campus or elsewhere have nothing to say in that regard - IE. its a fad thing for them.

I work on an academic campus and it appears to me that the Surface has gained some traction with very young adults. It could be just a fad thing though, like how when I went to school it was "cool" for your parents to buy you a new Macbook right out of high school--another $2000 facebook machine.

Great unboxing, but the graphics on that are Intel HD 4400, not 4000. 4000 was reserved for Ivy Bridge IIRC.

Ah, shoot, I totally had a brain fart when typing out the specs.  Thanks for the catch; I've updated the article.

Good preview, Alaina. I'm looking forward for the full review.

Good overview. However, I’m not sure it was appropriate to refer to Apple customers as "all you iPad homos."

Successful troll was successful.

As well as a driver of traffic, all the "ipad homos" probably watched the video just to catch the quote.
