Microsoft need a lot more articles like this from Gabe over at Penny Arcade. He picked up the Surface Pro to work on one of the regular comic strips, and was pretty happy with the results.
For me the Surface Pro is actually a great piece of hardware. For other digital artists out there looking for a portable solution or maybe a Cintiq 12WX alternative I would highly recommend it. I’m not actually sure how this review hardware stuff works. I don’t know if MS expects me to give this thing back or not. I’ve already decided that if they do want it back I’ll be making a trip down to the MS store to pick up another. Of course if they do want it back they’re going to have to pry it out of my wife’s hands. She just hit her very first golden age.
That’s one in the win column for the Surface Pro (and smart thinking by the PR team to get him a review unit).
