Just when I was loving my Surface the leaks are out about this....
Looks like my original Surface might not last too long depending on what happens with this!!

this thing sounds really compromised. If it is running a flavor of RT and can get Store apps I'll be good with it, but if it is a stripped down Surface that can only run Smartglass and maybe play videos and music I will pass. I think they are trying too hard to make an alternative to the Wii U which from what I have seen in the stores is a complete joke.

The specs on this page clearly show that there is a "Tablet Computing Device" which lasts the first 7 specs only. Following this up, is a "Stationary Computing Device", which the remainder of the specs pertain to.
So the "Tablet Computing Device" looks like the a 7" "tablet remote control" for the new Xbox. The specs are limited and low-class (eg, 288mb of ram @ 533Mhz).
The "Stationary Computing Device" is likely the Xbox itself.
No need to panic guys - this isn't a tablet entry, this is just an interesting development on the next-gen Xbox front.

Shut up and take all my money.
Having said that, I am disappointed with Halo 4 SmartGlass offering. This was Microsoft's chance to show the world the potential of SmartGlass with various game enhancing features but opted instead to simply run Halo Waypoint.
