ForgotMyTowel: poot_rootbeer: Kazan: The only think they have in common is the "Surface name", they both run (variants) of Windows, and they both have the same basic external physical design. Other than looking like each other they are ENTIRELY DIFFERENT BEASTS.This is true, and it's an extraordinarily bad decision on Microsoft's part to use near-identical design and branding for two products which are ENTIRELY DIFFERENT BEASTS.Consumer confusion abounds. And it could have been prevented had they spent a modicum more effort on their marketing strategies.Yeah this has been MS's biggest problem so far. The marketing is pretty confusing between Windows RT, Windows 8 , Windows 8 Pro, Surface, Surface pro, Metro, Desktop, etc. While the idea behind it is to have a unified UI for phones, tablets and desktops to increase consistency, the marketing has actually created more confusion than anything. Just look at this Fark thread and others, you consistently have people confusing features and limitations of one MS product for those of another. It's a mess.
Kazan: also since when is 5 hours of battery life bad?
