The thing that annoyed me most in this article was the author's insistence that the aspect ratio of the Surface was in some way weird or unusable. The iPad is 4:3 but almost every other tablet is 16:9 (or close to it). I have an Asus Transformer and I prefer the aspect ratio, it allows me to use landscape when browsing the web or watching to get a full view and then portrait when I am reading long-form text to avoid excessive scrolling. This is a case of "I'm not used to it and therefore I hate it"
