Farhad Manjoo, Not a Fan of the Microsoft Surface

The first prob­lem is speed. Every­thing you do on the Sur­face takes more time than you expect. When you load an app, switch between apps, launch a Web page, go back to a pre­vi­ous Web page, check your email, and do pret­ty much any­thing else, you’ll find your­self wait­ing a half-second too long. This sounds like noth­ing, but when you com­pound that time time across every action on the Sur­face, the wast­ed half-seconds add up to an annoy­ing trudge.

Microsoft is entering the hardware business, but still can’t seem to get their bread and butter, software, correct. Disconcerting for sure.
