Microsoft Surface Pro Hit with Negative Reviews Because Not Much Changed since 2004

Back in 2004 several companies released full Windows XP PDAs. Yes, tablets have been called back than Personal Digital Assistants. One of them was the Sony VAIO U series (Photo). I had the pleasure to review one back then. I came to the same downsides that today's reviews of the new Microsoft Surface Pro Windows 8 tablet came. The Surface Pro is too heavy, too thick, too power hungry and too expensive.

Compared to the 9 year old VAIO U, the new Surface Pro offers a larger touchscreen, more storage and a faster CPU and a more touch friendly UI. That is it. 

So skip the Surface Pro and hope that Microsoft and hardware maker come up with hardware that compares to the iPad and can run full Windows 8.
