    You're going to put in a lot of effort into breaking the Surface. It's not something that's going to break from an accidental fall. I believe there's a few YouTube video's demonstrating is quality build.

    The Surface actually is pretty well built. But, I do understand what you're saying. The reason why they make these things thinner and lighter is really for the cool factor. When I held the newest ipad I was honestly impressed by that cool factor, so I see it's merit. I would prefer something more durable for actual usage and wouldn't ever purchase an ipad. Just sayin' I see where the appeal comes from. A lot of people get things just so others can think they're cool.

    And just for semantics, I think you should say convertible laptop. As it just seems more fitting to take the top off rather than to put the top on.
