Oh… I know what it is to "watch another person sit down, strap on a headset, and have an extended VR 'experience'.". In fact, I know what it is to watch Jeff have that "VR Experience", right in front of my eyes… I was so bored I even took a few pics of him… https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/262054/jeff_oculus.jpg

It's a Trap! If you send the same graphic to every home… ;)

Having played with Jeff's RT for a few days and being a long time Apple user (who doesn't have an iPad), I can say that I agree that the Keyboard is very nice. I have been an Apple user for a long time and I have used (and still use) Android phones for personal telephony. I have used all versions of Windows (although Windows XP was the last version I used on a daily basis). I have now put together a PC and brought the Windows 8 Pro (39.99$) for gaming. I agree, the Surface RT is nice, looks interesting and I wish I had those 10 years ago when I developed a tactile system for windows using GDI and GDI+ when C# came out. Like Jeff said, this is a 1.0 device. But unless Microsoft screws it too bad, it can only get better. This is good for both Apple and Google as well. We really need a 3rd player here.

One disadvantage of large amounts of RAM (that you don't need) is that suspending/hibernating times are considerably longer. Writing a 24 GB hib file takes much longer than say a typical notebook with 4GB. I have had 10GB for the past 2 years (Mac Pro 8 core) for VM purposes (live in OS X, work on W7) and I don't look back, but upgrading to, say 20 right now, would probably end up being a waste… I'd rather get OWC SSDs :)
