We've heard rumors since last year it would be late 2013, but in Microsoft's Surface Pro 2 presentation today, they're convincing us that it's the best laptop/tablet replacement for every professional. Wouldn't the larger 14.6" with better specs be better for most professionals? Or maybe they'll push the larger size toward design professionals. Either way, the 10.6" size is known to cause strain on the eyes after a while. It's a good portable everyday option, but to really work for a long time, use the 3 sections of multitasking, and enjoy the upgraded screen specs, 4" more would make a huge difference.

The problem with having a Surface tablet that big is that it is too big! lol It is fine for a laptop, but it is not realistic for tablet type use. If you want something that big, something like the 13in Yoga would be a lot better choice.
BTW, you could always hook a Surface up to a monitor at home for a bigger screen.

Have you ever seen the Dell XPS 18? It's an 18" tablet, I had one for about a month, used it everyday and returned it, but wow was it fun. It was just a little too big, little too heavy, and a little too hot playing certain games. My friend has a Surface and he thinks its too small. He loved playing around on the XPS 18, and we thought, "Why isn't there a great tablet in the middle of these sizes?" You say a bigger size wouldn't be good for tablet type use, does that mean just playing around on it like an Ipad? If so, that's what the Surface 2 is for, but for real productivity, plus the option to play around, I would want full laptop specs, including the screen size. Games were much more fun on the 18", the split screen multitasking was easier to see, words were easier to read, typing was a breeze, small buttons on the desktop were easy to press (unlike the small Surface), and it was portable. Larger, full powered tablets are on the way, I'm just tired of waiting since last year!
BTW I know about connecting a PC to an HDTV, I've done it the past two years. The problem is I don't want to have to sit in the same spot every time I want to see a bigger screen, as well as loose the lap-touch ability.
