re: Microsoft Surface Pro: Why 2 SMBs Say Yes
For Dan Nainan - there are Android tablets out there that allow the attachment of a keyboard (via cable) that also allow for running dictation apps and it makes for a much more cost effective solution than a Surface Pro.

As to the whole cool factor... that's great. Didn't people think Edsels were cool when they came out? I actually hope that the Surface line succeeds, if nothing more than to keep Apple and the Android crowd on their toes. At this point, I don't see it happening in the business space, especially as saddled with Windows 8.
