Microsoft scrapped plans for Friday night's launch of its Surface Pro tablet at the Best Buy store in New York City because of an impending blizzard meteorologists have dubbed "Nemo." "Surface Pro launch activities in NYC have been canceled due to weather," said Microsoft spokesperson Dani Reese. "Our best wishes to everyone impacted by the blizzard." The cancellation is yet another bit of bad luck for the ill-fated Surface Pro; its launch was initially scheduled for January.

Why are you comparing the Surface Pro to the iPad? It has nothing in common with the iPad other than being a tablet. It's much closer competitor is the MacBook Air. How does it compare in size, weight, cost, battery life, etc. to the MBA? By your logic are you suggesting the iPad could replace the MBA for the same reasons?

I can find a lot of irrelevant comparisons that are lighter, cheaper. etc. but what's the point? They don't do the same thing so they're not really a potential replacement.

I plan to do my holiday shopping…
Online only -- I like the convenience and comfort.
Online only -- I'd shop in stores if their stock weren't so limited.
At brick-and-mortar stores only -- I like to see what I'm getting.
At brick-and-mortar stores only -- I enjoy the holiday shopping atmosphere.
At brick-and-mortar stores only -- I want to support local merchants.
Online and in stores -- I want the best of both worlds.
I'm not planning on doing any holiday shopping.
