Some more reveals below:
Size & weight: The Surface Pro is noticeably thicker and heavier than the RT version. So you’ll pay for Intel compatibility.
Battery life: It’s not mentioned for either device. If the RT version doesn’t obtain at least 8 hours of battery life, this is a major fail. I’m looking for at least 5-6 hours for the Intel version, preferably more. UPDATE: Readers tell me that Microsoft claims “up to 8 hours of battery life” for Surface RT. Nothing yet on Surface Pro.
Storage expansion: A number of readers are confused by the small storage allotments on the RT device. Remember that you can easily and inexpensively add another 32 GB of storage via the microSDXC card slot, as I’m doing now on the tablet I’m testing. UPDATE: Tim H. tells me the card slot actually supports up to 64 GB of additional storage. Even better!
Pen: A number of readers were worried that Surface RT/Windows RT didn’t support pen input. It does.
