It is somewhat heavier than an ipad or android tablet, battery life is very good for a laptop but poor for a tablet. Touch sensitivity seems a little less sensitive than iPad/Galaxy. However, it runs full blown Windows, and it runs it FAST. It blew away my 2 year old i7 based HP monster loaded with 8Gb of RAM. What a Surface Pro really is geared for is a micro-laptop. The size and keyboard/touchscreen combo makes it usable almost anywhere. Set the stand up and it is very usable on your lap (even in a middle seat). Battery life is around 5 hours with wi-fi. This will be a great device for those who want a really portable laptop and need the extra input capabilities that a full keyboard gives. If you need to use it as a tablet it can do that too, but if you really just want an entertainment tablet then probably look at an RT, iPad, Galaxy, or Nexus.
