Surface = iPad ripoff. Nuff’ said. — Even the Smart Cover concept (?) :O I’m shocked.
Smart Cover is a useless $40 add-on for a glorified media consumption device that ripped off the tablet concept Microsoft pioneered in the mid-2000s.

Apple pioneered the tablet concept, Jeremy.

@All Once again the Apple vs Microsoft debate. Let’s keep it clean.

All I read was “supports Adobe Flash” hopefully this will be an iPad killer :D

Get over with flash, there is no come back because already all flash developers (except game devs) have switched to different techs ;)

It doesn’t look like an exact iPad replica (although there’s only so much you can do with a tablet at the end of the day).

Actually, there is so much you can actually do. Before the iPad, we had no iPad copies. Remember all those devices where you used a stylus to add data? ;)

Don’t you know even Adobe dropped it already and Win 8 Metro won’t allow it :D

If it were Apple then everybody would say wow they have made very innovative product.

I think Surface has a lot of unique and innovative features like built-in stand, keyboard on the cover.
Yeah because if it was Apple they would made it first :) When it comes to case + keyboard it was already done for the iPad http://www.logitech.com/en-us/tablet-accessories/keyboards/ultrathin-keyboard-cover?WT.ac=ps|9859|hp

I am not a fan of either Apple or MS, I am in favor of good competition because it just benefits the consumers. A good product with built-in stand and a cover + keyboard with a price tag same as that of an ipad will force other competitors to come up with similar ideas and also drop the prices :)

Or maybe, just maybe, it was Stanley Kubrick in 1968 :)http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-3949GAIokg
