Oops I did it again...?
Adding a little more lipstick to the pig isn't going to change much of anything.
The hardware isn't great to begin with. Win8 is even more of the problem than the clunky Surface itself.
I have a question: in the article it says (using something akin to marketing speak), "Power Cover... packs in additional battery power, adding up to 30Wh to a Surface unit. That could boost battery life up to 50 percent, meaning the new Surface Pro could last up to two and a half times longer than its predecessor."
Are you selling these or something? So, how much is "two and a half times longer than its predecessor" exactly?
You said the Haswell addition could boost battery life 75% to maybe 8 hours. So does that mean the original Surface got roughly 5 hours? And with the addition of the new "battery pack" cover, it could get 12.5 hours?
All these clever-sounding ways to describe the new battery life levels are not informative. PLEASE just declare the actual rough estimate of battery life, ok? So I don't have to try and do a bunch of silly math to get to the real numbers.
Because, "2.5 times the battery life" would be impressive if we were starting at, say, 10 hours. But 2.5 times 3 hours is not so impressive by today's standards. If I have to carry a battery pack to get 10 hours out of my iPad, should I be impressed?
Mainly, I'd like all these so-called battery life references to be consistent. Like this: The original got five hours. The new one, about 8, and with the battery pack, up to around 12... see how easy that was?
