To me the Surface business model makes zero sense. They need the windows platform to become big on mobile devices but they have made the surface a niche product by trying to make the thing a laptop as well which has then increased the price to ridiculous heights. They aren't going to get business either since business are more concerned about cost effectiveness (tablets are cool but laptops are far cheaper and now android have created a cheap product market which they are dominating in)
