Definition of jewel: something costly, useless and pretty.
Until the "pretty" part I'm totally with you defining Surface a jewel.

re: Microsoft Surface: A Misunderstood Jewel
Why don't you compare your definition of jewel with these from merriam-webster:
a valuable stone (such as a ruby or diamond) that has been cut and polished
a piece of jewelry (such as a necklace or a bracelet) that is made of valuable metal and precious stones
someone or something that is highly valued or admired.
But the way, I agree that the Surface Pro is something different. Hopefully, it'll take off and improve in the coming versions.

Jewels' essence may be more efficiently described by Marilyn Monroe rather than by Merriam-Webster: "Diamonds Are a Girl's Best Friend".
