    *Fingers crossed* can't wait and should be great but I would start to wonder about retailers such as the Dixon retail group who do sell a large range of products which any Microsoft store will feature.

    I for one really hope they open a few stores, preferably one close by!

    Really want to get my hands on a Surface or Surface Pro and see what it's like before spending that much money on something!

    Surely can't be worse then the rest of the high street?

    I'd say Apple store employees know more about iStuff than the average shop employee and shopper, if Microsoft can replicate that it should be a positive thing.

    Can't help but laugh after seeing the big windows logo above the store, apple style.
    It would be nice for less boring stores, though!

    Hope they place their stores next to or opposite Apple stores...

    Sounds good. Hope they're not tempted to mimic Apple's clinical, boring stores though.
