I'm not surprised as this is just a touch laptop but dang. Only four? I wonder what our reaction would have been at 5 or 6 maybe? Six, no brainer. Five, there still would have been complainers.
Does 4 hours make your mind up?

Before there was no question, I was definitely getting the Pro model, but now I am on the fence.
I will say that the pricing doesn't bother me at all though, cheaper than what I was expecting.

I think the 4 hours is based on work load. They generally measure battery life while streaming video or running office benchmarks. I have been very impressed with the standby battery life of the Surface RT. I would like to think the Pro will have good standby battery life, although where I will be using the Pro for work I don't think it will be in standby very often.
I'm with schoondog with this one. Use it heavy, the battery will be taking a beating. My laptop's battery takes a huge beating when I am using it heavily for "work" purposes.

Its such a weird thing to compare cause yes its a full computer but its a tablet. The first of its kind! (that is even worth mentioning).

I think it is absurd for people to expect it to last as long as a tablet when it is basically a touchscreen laptop.

We have never had this much compute power in this size package.
In the next 12 months Intel will release Haswell, less power and more performance.
There is a good deal of battery design going on as well.
We are still in the earlier adopter mode.

If you already have a base desktop device, I truly stand by the fact that the Surface RT is a much better companion device than the Surface Pro!
