My boss bought an MS Surface last week and tasked me with setting it up so that he can get rid of his laptop (told him not to buy it).

That kind of stuff just makes me laugh. And I've heard similar comments ("we can replace laptops!") from people at my job, too.

I guess marketing is doing it's job...


Marketing NOT doing its job. Its job is to not only get customers but get happy customers. Anyone looking to buy a laptop replacement in the RT will not be a happy customer. They'll complain, there will be bad word of mouth, and sales will collapse. Bad, bad marketing.

Plenty of people buy the iPad expecting a laptop replacement, too. Idiots. But Microsoft was particularly bad in explaining what RT was.
