Surface Pro is tempting, but it will be a lot more expensive, will be 50 percent heavier, and will have shorter battery life. Of course it will be more powerful, but for casual annotation I don't really need that. I'm still hoping that the TPT2 will come out in the US in the coming three weeks. MS Store still lists 'estimated ship date' as 12/31/2012, so that doesn't look too great. What a stock tease.
