Some are born great, some achieve greatness and some have greatness thrust upon them.

The rest of us are a bit crap.

It is fine for the purposes of Gerry The Builder's 11 year old daughter, who wants it to play Angry Birds on.

I flogged it to him a week later for forty quid!

Rip off UK again costs £90 more here than in the States and you pay more for the keyboard if you want one I think it's' overpriced, also your restricted to the amount of colors here.

Compared to the colours you get to choose from when buying an iPad the choice can't be that bad.
I'd touch both with a ten feet pole only, though. :D

Somehow converting units in idioms seemed wrong to me. :D

OK, I'd only touch either with a 3,048m pole.

I'm sure there are better websites than this one if that's all he wants to know.

Here's the link to their UK site sale page
MS Office (Word, Excel & Powerpoint) come preloaded but you have to pay extra for either keyboard (Touch or Type) - you may get a better price from new at somewhere like PCWorld but you can still kiss goodbye to £400 :roll:

The Surface Pro also has MS Office as standard but I read somewhere that it'll also let you use Adobe programmes (like Flash or Photoshop) although as it's not available here or in the States yet (last time I looked) I don't know if you have to load that yourself as Adobe are very precious with their registrations :x
