As I said in the Surface RT thread, I preordered a Dell Latitude 10, It runs Win 8 Pro, has a Clovertrail chip, 2 GB RAM, 64 GB SSD, 10.1 inch screen. Bare bones it comes in at $649; another fifty bucks for the Wacom pen, and $80 for the BT keyboard/folio. (lesee… figger figger) Why, that’s almost eight hun! Throw in the docking station for another hundred and the Surface Pro doesn’t seem so spendy after all.

What prevents me from cancelling the Dell order and picking up a Surface Pro is the abysmal battery life it takes to run that Core-i5 chip. Microsoft said expect about half of what a Surface RT gets.
