  3. I was going over the same thing with my brother. He was asking about why my smart phone lasted about two years. I told him imagine if you were to treat your laptop the way some people treat their phones. I drop my phone about once a week. A hard fall every 6 to 8 weeks. His laptop would break on one, maybe two of the falls that my phone experiences on a regular basis.

    Well, at least they're not commenting on how the customer holds his tablet, but actually try to fix it!

    Something good about all this - they may get it right for the release of Surface Pro. The latter is one professional users may buy, nice to have all those quirks sorted on the RT-s, poor guineas :)

    Too much of rush to get them out to market.. They should have waited. RT is the limited model 148ppi is said one at best for this tablet. Quad-core like dual-core from Nvida on the tablet only runs at 1000MHz or roughly 250MHz x 4 = 1000MHz as the Dual-Core Tegra2 ran at 512MHz x 2 = 1000MHz .

    Pretty sure that MHz count is per-core, not total.
