Penny Arcade web comic artist Mike Krahulik (Gabe, @CWGabriel) recently got a chance to take the Surface Pro for a test drive and wrote this exhaustive post about his experiences.

It's a great read and filled with useful nuggets for artists hoping to produce professional quality results with their new tablet.

Check it out here. He also posted a YouTube clip demonstrating his inking with Sketchbook Pro.

The artist's write-up is so good that it prompted Apple defender John Gruber at Daring Fireball to write the following: "How ironic would it be if the iPad becomes the dominant mass market computer and the Surface becomes the one for artists?"

Ironic indeed!
