Microsoft Defends Surface Pro’s Limited Battery Life, Storage Space

Maximum PC: "Now that the first Surface Pro reviews are out, it seems that even those determined to overlook its hefty price tag are going to have a hard time justifying the Core i5-powered tablet’s piss-poor battery life to themselves. At around 4-5 hours, the Surface Pro’s battery life (or the lack thereof) belies the very reason people buy tablets — unwired, uninterrupted on-the-go use. Microsoft’s Panos Panay tackled questions about both the Windows 8 tablet’s limited battery life and lack of usable storage space in a Reddit Ask Me Anything (AMA) session session on Wednesday."

I'd rather have an ultrabook

My laptop has an i5 and its one of the first "ultrabooks" Toshiba made, and it still lasts over 8 hours on a charge....

I'd be more worried about the storage space though, that sucks. I love my phone, but Sony made the mistake of making very little on board memory and its so terrible in the long run. I have a massive memory card I can barely use because everything initially needs to be on the tiny space of the phone.

Overall though this is stupid excuses. Pay a high price and then get told "well you can pay even more to fix all the issues it has"

It's got better run time & functionality than my laptop from 09'

Here is an idea. If you don't like it don't buy it.
And then let MS figure a way to get their buyers back on their next system.
