A friend of mine recently got hold of a Microsoft Surface Pro tablet and he let me have a play on it for a couple of hours.  So, I installed Mathematica 9 and ran the benchmark.  A screenshot of the result is below with the Surface’s result in blue.  Not bad for a tablet!

Touch controlled Manipulates were a lot of fun too.  If only I could run such things on my iPad as appeared to be promised in

My only other comment is that the Touch Cover is truly awful, reminding me of ye-olde ZX81, but I’ve been told that the Type Cover is much better
