    Question Microsoft's New "Surface" Computer

    Looks like BG has done it again... A fully touch screen computer??? Man, what will they think of next. To pricey right now for me to even think about, but let's see how long it takes to make it into the mainstream!!!

    Meh. I want something that is portable, not something that is the center of the living room. However, from the corporate standpoint, the uses are endless and make much more sense than a consumer version of this computer.

    I believe the Journal had a $5000-10000 price tag.

    Microsoft is targeting the casinos hotels with this.

    I heard 10K but give it time and someone will have a cheaper version may be something around 7K. The restaurant applications would be quite something.

    I wonder about the effeciency of our phones security levels if we are able to access every ones phones in public. I dont think I would use it with my phone, but sitting at a restaurant and being able to play airhockey while waiting for your food to be served sounds like a nice idea!
