Live discussion: Surface Pro goes on sale Saturday [Video]

Microsoft Corp.'s Surface Pro is set to launch Saturday, but we’ve had a few days to check it out.

Although the new device is the size and shape of a tablet, it’s got the power of a laptop. However, it costs about the same as a laptop too.


There’s a lot to like and a lot to dislike about the Surface Pro, so tune in with us as we discuss the good, the bad and the heavy (at 2 pounds, the Surface Pro weighs a lot for a tablet) before this tablet goes on sale.
