    If you think Microsoft has a better product, then buy it. Why do you have to stay loyal to one company? Give your money to the company with the best product.

    You're ridiculous. If you don't appreciate what apple has to offer then move on. Apple is not the be all end all.

    Yep. .Net applications will most likely already work and most others will just need to be recompiled. They already have a working Word + Powerpoint that got demoed as well as IE9.

    Yes, but that's microsoft's doing.
    ARM probably won't make up much of the PC market, therefore, will get overlooked by many developers.

    The OP will survive. He uses Y! instead of AIM or iChat so he can't be too much of a fanboi. :p

    I missed out since I was back at home gaming. I did get to see the 2009 and 2010 CES Keynotes from Microsoft using the delightfully efficient Silverlight plug-in.

    ARM is gunna be mostly for portable computers. What do people want with portable computers?

    Office and internet mostly. WP7 apps will also work with it Im sure. They showed Harvest running which was a WP7 game.

    Give your money to whoever you feel deserves it the most. For me, that's Apple. It's up to you what product you buy..buy whatever suits you best, be it a Microsoft or an Apple product.

    I'm still waiting for WinFS and half the other stuff Microsoft announced for Cairo 20 years ago.

    I'm really disappointed with Microsoft on other fronts (like taking all the good, innovative features in Windows Home Server out of it for Vail.) I bought my WHS server right after CES 2010 and was looking forward to W7 tablets.

    Hopefully, .NET and managed code will facilitate this attempt at porting Windows to non Intel architecture, and we won't have to wait until 2013 or beyond for this stuff to be on shelves.

    Frankly though I'm far more likely to pick up an Android or Chrome OS device.

    Microsoft can really, and has really made amazing products.*

    So when they do, buy it if you need it and like it.



    *Apple makes more. :p

    You are being ridiculous. If buy whatever product you wish. You don't have to stay loyal to one company.

    I'm really excited for that cool 2 touch screen computer. The only thing I am worried about it the typing. Do you think the touch screen keyboard will be an impediment? Also, is Windows 7 available for Bootcamp?
    And another really important question. Which should I buy (when it comes out), Lion or Windows 8 (or whatever they are gonna call it)?
    And as an Xbox gamer I am really happy for Avatar Kinect (who here thinks Project Natal was so much more badass?), it almost gives me a reason to go out and buy a Kinect. But I will wait until First Person Shooters come out for it.

    Touchscreen laptop screens have had a few attempts to become the mainstream market and they failed miserably. A touchscreen keyboard is also a screaming failure and an attempt to improve something that no one ever asks to be improved. They have a lot of great products on the way but I doubt that will ever go mainstream.

    You should want Microsoft to drop more and more innovating products on the market as it will be a driving force in the adoption of newer technology and a driving force in making Apple to continue to push the limit. If you look at where both Apple and Microsoft are today and compare them to 10 years ago, they are both pushing the envelope harder than ever before and producing innovative and unique products that people are adopting and are becoming mainstream (ex: the Apple MacBook Air) AND they actually serve a useful purpose other than just being 'cool' or 'different'.
