Burns is totally wrong, and he missed an opportunity. The Surface Pro should in no way be compared to the Air. A product's positioning in a product line is not by itself sufficient to make that comparison.
Disagree. I think Surface Pro vs MB Air is the most apt comparison you can make. It's just one that he made very poorly.
One thing though... Can we call a digitizing pen what it is, and not just a "stylus". It's much more than that.
It appears to be a light pen along the lines of what a reasonably smart teenager could have built with a discarded Bic barrel and $10 of Radio Shack parts 25 years ago.
One is a tablet with a touchscreen, the other an "Ultrabook", without one. One has a digitizing pen option, the other doesn't.
As far as styli, I'm not saying that the Samsung digitizing pen should be heading towards Stockholm in December, but it's certainly not a "dumb" conductive stylus. I don't know if it's a light pen, it's a Wacom style stylus and it's leaps and bounds better than the "dumb" variety. Having used both, there's no comparison.
