Microsoft Surface Review

Looks like Microsoft’s embargo just expired, because Josh Topolsky’s review of the Surface has been released. Spoiler alert: instead of “no compromises”, Microsoft’s Surface is a one-size-fits-none solution. Disappointing, really. Maybe the Surface Pro will be better, but judging by this, the only thing that will improve is legacy app support, which is weak at best in a touch environment.

The review seems very fair, but the final score is surprisingly high for a device that does nothing particularly well.
