Redmond magazine executive Jeff Schwartz shot me over link what is purported to be the first real review of a Microsoft Surface machine running Windows 8 RT. Being curious, I took a look hoping to have intelligent things to say about these units in the future. Heck, this may be your next computer.
From the TechRadar "review" I learned a bit about the hardware itself, which seems pretty slick. And judging from all the sweetness, it might hit your budget a bit hard, but that's just conjecture.
Unfortunately I didn't get any feel for the operation or get to the soul of the machine. I wanted to know what it feels like to use this machine, what the experience is like. What the review lacks is an analysis of the software -- kind of like testing a car without driving it.
For those who don't need the satisfaction of a full review, feel free to head here.
