If you do plan on pre-ordering a Microsoft Surface tablet, you should know that there are two versions: Windows RT and Windows 8 Pro. The Surface with Windows 8 Pro will offer the full Windows 8 experience, while Windows RT will not. If you want to be able to run desktop applications like iTunes or Google Chrome you'll need to wait for the Surface with Windows 8 Pro to be released, but if you only plan on using tablet apps then Surface RT is good enough.
