I am sorry but I find it hard to believe you want to root for the home team (whatever that means). Almost every reviewer has not said RT is sluggish - some have and other have not. If, however, you are just going by what reviewers say for devices that can be seen and touched in many outlets, then you are saying you are simply not interested. As far as the number of apps goes, do you even know how many are available and what the coverage is for the things people like to use? Evidently, I would guess the answer is no. Likewise, with the size of the OS. Add third party apps to an android device or even IOS to cover the things Windows RT does out of the box and see what is left. I could say add Office 2013 but they are simply not available and the alternatives at least on android are sluggish, buggy, incapable of handling complicated documents, and introduce formatting issues when going back to Office on a Windows machine. Throw in the size of Office though (not some crappy knockoff) and again see what is left in storage.

For instance, I think that given the lousy battery life, Surface Pro is a really bad mobile device - whatever else it may be, if it can't match the battery life of other tablets, it fails an essential litmus test compared to those devices. Please do not, however, try to hide behind a few cheerleader clichés, and attempt to claim your position is anything other than is obviously the case. It is an active bias and you are willing to go out of your way to tell people about it....
