Default Talk about the touch..I want one

Long story short Had a cable repair tech out today for my phone/internet problem. gotto talking about, that's right computers. He told me his best friend found and bought one of these off ebay for $800.00 The tech was telling me all its quilities and that it had 32GBRam and 13Terrabytes(not sure if I spelled it right) of Hard Drive. That's a lot of Hard ware to Drive. Any way I found this on You tube thought for those like me that were green about might be interested to see the new world.

I'd LOVE to check that one out, BT, but will have to wait until I get into town. It is toooo big for me to download now on my DUN, but will watch it in town... That will be on my to-do list, for sure.....

It is a Dial-Up-Network, and U-Tube videos won't play like normal.. I can download them with "Free Download Manager", but the large ones take forever to load, so I save them for when I am downtown, and use the hi-speed computer at the library.... I can download the smaller ones tho... Also, when the connection is slow, it really bytes, but when it is really good, it doesn't take so long... thanks!

Hey $800 is great as they normally go for $15000, but then most folk wont like them as the backend is Vista

Did get to play with one last year and hopefully will get more time with one at MSFT UK this year, Surface is neat and the future, I think personally the future of family computing. Surface has been around for a while (pre 2007 but gained its first unveiling in 2007 at D5 conference) but is taking off more in retail and service industries like Las Vegas, I hope to convince MSFT that it also would be good in medicine.

Do review the videos http://www.microsoft.com/surface/
