Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. It's getting toward the time now where windows 8 will be released and the first MS Surface RT devices will be released. I'm wondering if anyone's interested in getting one or maybe waiting for the Surface pro ( I'm holding out for one of those) or are most people going to give them a miss?

    The surface pro would be able to replace my current desktop, I can pop 16gb of ram in it and migrate my hyper-v machines that I've got running on it easily, then when I'm in the office connect it up to a couple of daisy chained display Port monitors and Bluetooth keyboard and mouse and jobs a jobbed.

    I can't see too many people doing that though but I could see the RT devices being a decent competition to IPad simply because of the pull of Office software.
