    That's a pretty big plug when Microsoft uses your product to try and show how cool
    their product could be too...

    This is actually a really exciting product from Microsoft...that's incredible. 6K on a tablet...

    I can't see the hours for increased battery life, just the % though. I can imagine 6K or even 4K would take away quite a lot of battery life...

    Now imagine this as a neat driving force for FCPX to make its way to the iPad say...6? :P

    Nice demo, looks like a interesting option for reviewing footage on the go.

    I can't say I take anything with USB 2.0 seriously. Why 3 USB 2.0 and only one 3.0?

    That's why God invented USB hubs.

    sorry...this is idiotic....i want a tablet that runs all day crunching 6K raws just as much as anyone....and i don't care who makes it or how much....
    but this is silly....haswell improves battery life, no question...but it is more a power management then magic...so if you run at full blast, there is little improvement....so the 20% to 75% (which one is it anyway?) better battery life still puts this at a couple of hours at best...
    we all know that desktop GPUs with 2 and even 4vram choke with raw 4k, so this demo must have run at much slower resolution....debayer at 1/16 or 1/32 i assume (good enough for the screen anytime)...which brings us to...data....is there even a 512gb version of this? so i can at least dump one 256gb mag...just to show off how well it plays it back...once before the battery dies?

    i think the surface pro shows great potential (if it wasn't hindered by a system that still just isn't made for touch) but top of the line laptops across the manufacturer lines can't REALLY do what this demo is kind of hinting at....people in the audience might come back from this thinking that "you can edit 6K on this thing!" and that is just BS and i even wonder why it is necessary?
