    Maybe as an incentive to entice more people to pay for Premium, us Premium members could get an exclusive look at the pig photo. If it's as funny as your reactions were this episode, this could be a reason to pay for Premium alone :)

    PS sorry Brad

    So if asked, most people at my work (70,000 + employees) would not know about the Surface line. So if you ask them what they would like, they would say a "better laptop" (we have fairly basic Dell's) or a Mac laptop. Because they know about the MacBook. When they see my personal Surface Pro 4, they are surprised. I know those who think Surface devices are the 2in1 Surface Pro. So if you as them if they want a "Surface" for work, they would say know I would like a "laptop." Basically I think it is more about awareness, the understanding what the Surface devices offer but still saying I want a Mac laptop.

    Regardless of my perspective, I agree with Paul and Brad - why did Microsoft promote that survey???
