HP: Surface is ‘slow’ and ‘kludgey’

Todd Bradley, the head of HP’s PC business:

“I’d hardly call Surface competition,” Bradley said in an interview with IDG Enterprise. He listed several reasons, “One, very limited distribution. It tends to be slow and a little kludgey as you use it …. It’s expensive. Holistically, the press has made a bigger deal out of Surface than what the world has chosen to believe.”

This coming from one of Microsoft’s partners.

      preware fixes most of the lag on the touchpad, by 3.0.5 the device was as good as the original iPad. but by then we had iPad 3. :D

    What is he supposed to say, “Go buy a Surface, they are better than our laptops.” Being a partner doesn’t mean anything;Apple and Samsung are partners.

    If HP disagrees with what you’re doing, you must be doing something right.
