Surface Pro 3 comes out today -- and you may actually want to pick this one up | VentureBeat | Gadgets | by Eric Blattberg
Microsoft today released the Surface Pro 3, its latest tablet-laptop hybrid, in the U.S and Canada. It’s available through Microsoft’s online store as well as via retail partners like Best Buy, Staples, and Tiger Direct.


I'm running Win 8.1 on a cute Dell Inspiron 15. My issues with the platform are not the hardware. It's that the Metro UI seems tacked on to the Desktop UI. And the switcharoo hasn't been clearly thought through. From time to time I inadvertently switch to the desktop through a touchpad gesture and vice versa. A lot of unnecessary jumping around. Maybe it's the Dell touchpad, but I don't think so.

Also, the massive list of alphabetized programs under the Metro UI seem like a plausible replacement for the Start Menu. Until you realize that not all the installed programs are listed. For anyone with a modicum of Windows XP experience, the whole system seems like a strange and unfamiliar land. And time spent doesn't really seem to help settle.

Could be resolved by an 8.2 update. At least that's what I'm hoping.
