Both of my brothers use Surface laptops, even though they are both mac/ios
lovers.  Their reasoning comes in two complaints:  1) The surface lets them
annotate on the screen, pretty much any document they want, using the
stylus, and 2) even though they can now do similar things on the ipad, the
spreadsheet/word processing docs on the ipad aren't powerful enough, yet,
and have clunky controls.  Anyone who has tried to use an ipad for
spreadsheets can feel their pain.  So when I saw this announcement I
immediately thought macbook air with a touchscreen, and the ipad becomes
even more of a gaming/entertainment/personal TV/lives on the couch/content
consumption product and the macbook remains the desk/stand-up desk/train
content production product.

On the second day, God created the oceans.
On the third day, God put the animals on hold for a few hours,
   and did a little diving.
And God said, "This is good."
