Microsoft's Surface Pro commercial airs, watch it right here

Microsoft's Surface Pro commercial has finally aired following blurry-cam footage of it, and we have posted it for you. The commercial is clearly aimed at the corporate market and hopes to win enterprise appeal.

The commercial, which was directed by Jon M. Chu (who directed the Surface with Windows RT commercial and is the director of the upcoming "G.I. Joe: Retaliation" film), primarily showcases the fact that the tablet has a full-sized USB port and features a pen digitizer. Much like Chu's first Surface commercial, the ad features choreographed dancing with the tablet.

Microsoft is hoping that the Pro will be adopted by the enterprise along with Windows 8. The commercial highlights several aspects of both platforms including being touch friendly, supports stylus input, a USB port and the touch/type keyboards.

While it seems that the initial demand for the Pro was high, others have reported that the launch stock of the devices were quite low. Whatever the reason, the Surface Pro has been hard to find for quite a few consumers during the launch weekend which is good news for Microsoft as it means that they were able to clear out the channel in a short period of time.

I'm actually excited for the surface pro. Seems like the laptop killer to me. Wonder if it can handle Crysis

Heard it's extremely difficult to use on your lap. Good luck.

all the hate aside it really is a nice piece of hardware not sure how well its going to do in todays market but it is nice.

I prefer my ipad mini to it because it works and performs flawless and the apps ooo the apps lol

but for people who wants a $1000.00USD Ultrabook this is the way to go for sure

Depend, for a ultrabook, 10" and 128gb ssd is meh at best. In fact,10" is netbook size and it is anything but ideal. We hope 12" and 256gb (at least).

I like how the ad focuses on the Surface Pro's features. Oh wait...
It does Versatility. What you want it to be a boring step-by-step feature commercial? That's what reviews are for. People like excitement before knowing the features. Excitement gets people interested. So what attracts you in a partner first? their good and bad parts of themselves or how they present themselves to you?

What has stupid dancing to do with the Surface?

Actually, this has very little to do with the Surface and everything to do with Microsoft trying to change their corporate image.

From a reliable business to a dancing school or what?

and just like with the last set of ads, nothing tells you all the advantages this tablet has. not a word on x86 apps, full device driver compatibility, and off course no mention of the fact it is the fastest tablet in the world making ARM chips look like slugs in comparison.

"The commercial is clearly aimed at the corporate market and hopes to win enterprise appeal."

Question about that...our CEO is interested in one since is pulling double duty as county judge too...wants to replace his main PC with this...(it is a 6 year old Dell Laptop)...he isn't tech saavy and I think this COULD work for him but here's the problem...How do you connect this to a domain if it doesn't have a NIC and we have Wi-Fi that doesn't allow domain access? Is VPN the only option?
