This device is about 50% thicker than the iPad Pro and the latter has more pixels. Notice how they compared it to the 12" MacBook instead of the iPad Pro... why are we comparing laptops to tablets exactly? Why isn't the iPad Pro considered a computer by statistics companies again?
The thing also weights more. I'm not saying it wouldn't be a great device, but I don't think it's all that much better than the existing iPad Pro lineup and Apple is set to announce something new in less than two weeks...
Because you can do heavy workloads on a surface you can not do on an iPad... Can you run VS or equivalent dev environment? Can you run a full on database server like Sql Server? A local web server? Linux? Full Photoshop? No... That's the reason they don't compare to iPads. One is a toy one is a powerful computer for real productivity tasks.

There aren't any no-go zones for police in Britain. Anyone who says there are 'no-go' zones is doing so to further their own political agenda.
The police go anywhere though. No-go areas is a complete myth.
Got to come down more on the Gurman side of this, the Apple TV is a damp squib in its current incarnation; it lacks anything particularly compelling, and Apple have failed to deliver any compelling content or means of accessing that content. Gaming and non-TV apps are little more than a distraction from the failure to significantly progress the platform in any way except the price since the Apple TV 2 launch over 5 years ago, and there's little to suggest that Apple have anything to improve the situation.
This would be one of those occasions where "Apple needs and deserves plenty of criticism" instead of blind faith and defensiveness.
