When the Surface came to market — way before anyone was ready for it — it started something bigger than even Microsoft realized at the time. While the focus was on Windows 8 and the fact that Microsoft vendors were struggling to both compete with the iPad and fuel PC upgrades, the Surface actually started to challenge the idea of what a PC was.

Although I continue to see the the Surface as I initially saw it, a comprised device, its hard to deny the forward thinking nature of its existence, something that I initially did not give it enough credit for.
