I'm a little pissed because there are reports from news sites grudging the Surface Pro on it's battery life. It's supposed to be half of that of the Surface RT (which is around 10 hours, so 5), yet these journalists are STILL comparing it to an iPad. As if the iPad can do the same amount of stuff and has the same specs of a Surface Pro (Here's a hint - it doesn't even come close).
Here's an example.I feel that these types of articles are made by really butthurt iPad owners who see that the Surface Pro is a much more capable system. The title of the article says it all: calling the Surface Pro "truly terrible" based on it's battery life. The lower battery life of a much more capable and powerful system. Duh. I just don't get it.
What do you feel about the 5 hour battery life on the Surface Pro? Personally, I think it will suit me perfectly - I will use it to take notes in class, and outside of class it will be plugged in and used for basically everything else, and I'm never in class more than 3-4 hours a day. I don't see this being a problem for people in offices, schools, etc either because there are plugs available. Considering the power under its hood and the sheer amount of shit I can do with it, it's better than any laptop I will ever use and is more portable.
