    Missing one essential feature from thid list. Optimized.note taking software for windows 8 pro. For the price they want to sell, microsoft needs to do this to make their price credble. There will undoybtedly be people who can afford this, but as a notetaking device the experience will, i forsee, poor, and the surface pro with stylus, losr credibility as a note taking device.

    • Bugbog

      What are you talking about? Isn’t the optimized Pen/OneNote capability that they demo’ed good enough?

      • Willem Evenhuis


        I think for a truly good notetaking and inking experience the OS needs to be tailored better to the stylus. I’ve been using a tablet with stylus ever since 2004. Since then there has been a lot of improvement on the hardware front, but I’ve seen little functional improvement on the software front. Even inking for outlook, which was supported for outlook 2003 and 2007 is not there anymore. Microsoft news has reported this:

        I welcome this news, because this is just what the surface pro and windows 8.1 needs to give the pro three a good stylus and notetaking experience. Onenote has improved greatly. But what is still missing is the power of ink-to-text recognition. inking adresses and inking in email was already there in outlook 2003 and 2007 as an add-on. Apparantly its making a comeback. Writing inline webadresses in the adressbar was also possible since windows 2005, but has somehow disappeared. I’m glad all these ideas are making a comeback. The function of the instant onenote opening with the erasor click is a welcome functionality, but onenote still needs some work. Inline ink-to-text recognition is a powerful function I want and is possible. There is myscript mobile, but they use their own library, I would like this integrated in onenote because I can then build up my personal recognition library for medical jargon and recognition of my (admittedly) sloppy handwriting. That would vastly improve my colaboration with collegues. The moment I saw Panos Panay write on the note three, I thought, now is the time. I know my handwriting is sometimes difficult to read, but when I saw his handwriting demo on the pro 3, I knew the time is right to mention the possibilities for a far better pro 3 experience. The amazing hardware and awsome stylus is there. It just needs some more software love. I propose that update proposed by the link posted above, but also adding integration of inking in all the native apps to windows 8.1 as well (email notes in email, jotting calender appointment in the calendar app, inking numbers and adress data of friends and collegeus in the people hub, inking notes with instant text recogntion in facebook, awsome!, jotting journal notes in bing travel or new recipes in bing food and drink, snipping internet snippets to bing reader and news (we’re getting to the real courier now!).

        • Bugbog

          Actually they have incorporated some of what you mentioned above in the current Pro 3; ink to text recognition. Webpage dragging and dropping into OneNote, etc
          And, with the creation of the new Inking group and the (now) rapid Surface/Windows 8.1 update cycle, I’m sure it will only get better.

    I want gps so we can use here maps on it

      You can already download Nokia HERE Maps on all Windows P.C.’s now, they stopped their exclusivity after Microsoft bought Nokia’s mobile-phone unit, so you can search for it now in the Windows Store. 😉

      • FateStayNight

        I know. I already have Here maps on my dv8p for some time now. That’s not it. I like my dv8p but sometimes I wish I waited for the lenovo miix 2 8 instead since it does have a gps chip. Here maps is great in offline mode when I go out but it’s static. I’d have to buy a bluetooth gps dongle to get the full experience of here maps on a windows 8 computer so I only have to open it and it finds me, instead of me having to zoom and pan for a minute or 2 before I can use it like I’m doing now. Without gps onboard, I won’t be able to use surface or my dv8p in my car like I dreamed. But other than the gps, the surface pro 3 is great! :)

    Finally one with more than 500 G.B. internal storage… this Surface could actually replace my laptop. 😀

  • NGM123

    Every release brings on the whingers saying…. it hasn’t got blah, no good cause it hasn’t got this. Fk me, if MS listened to all the whiners out there, every release would feature a can opener with hair extensions.

    • Mr. B

      If they would listen they would be a great device where there would be no whingers, don’t you think??

  • Mr. B

    No NFC, No Broadband, No GPS, No Pen Socket to store the pen??? I am so glad I got the Lenovo Helix, beats this Surface in anything.!!!!
