My wife has the first generation and loves it. She uses it in place of her dead mb. She is finishing her masters degree, so a lot of paper writing and research. To compare it to an ipad or android tablet does a huge disservice to the device.

Microsoft deserves the blame. Why they saddled such a powerful device with the same brand as the failed SurfaceRT and undesirable Windows8/Metro is a mystery to me.

Actually it's not a mystery. It's pure hubris. They thought they could brute-force the market by sheer will.

Not saying i agree entirely with this comment, but they haven't been proven that they can't "brute-force the market by sheer will" as long as they're still in the game. Some would say that's how they won the first OS wars.
