    W700 may be 0.03" thinner than the Surface Pro, but the vapor magnesium case of the Surface Pro and perimeter venting may be worth it.

    The W700 battery life can be easily explained through CPU throttling that many here are experiencing. Perhaps the Surface Pro does not do this, but until someone can put a few to the test, we do not know the actual battery life and performance.....it is all speculation right now.

    Yes, it is thinner, but also larger (width/height) and heavier. The w700 does not include a pen digitizer, display port, sd card slot, keyboard connector, or kick stand which saves weight and space and probably allowed them to put in a larger battery. The w700 has a 54wh battery while the surface has a 42wh. I'm pretty sure the surface was designed to meet a 2 lbs weight limit, which may be the reason for a smaller battery. Obviously the smaller space available could also be the reason.

    Where does it say pen support? I couldn't find any information regarding pen support on Acer's website or in the manual.

    Thanks. Looks like the it has not been released yet. Very strange that Acer did not emphasis this feature on their website.

    I'm thinking that the 'p' version may never actually see the light of day but then again, over here in the UK, you can't exactly find the W700 either.
