so, MS Surface Pro will be released early next year. It appears MS starting off for next generation laptop. Touch Screen Laptop with portability. Although I doubt the Surface Pro's i5 and power can handle serious desktop applications.. a physical keyboard cover is very attractive. Apple can make the thinnest, most attractive design with good performances. MBA, new iMac, iPad... So, will Apple develop a new hybrid (iPad + Macbook Air) product line, even cannibalize own macbook and iPad lines? It seems predictable on winning MS Surface Pro in the market if its performance is good as MBA.
