NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- Microsoft (MSFT - Get Report) unveiled improved versions of its two tablet-laptop combo devices: One based on Intel (INTC - Get Report); the other based on ARM, in this case Nvidia's (NVDA - Get Report) Tegra 4. My prediction is that sales success will largely elude Microsoft yet again.First of all, however, let me point out that both new Surface versions are solid improvements over their predecessors. The screens are better, the processors are faster and more power-efficient and there are exciting new peripherals -- keyboards and docks.
