Probably most of those Surface sales are replacing the sales of Windows licenses for ultrabooks, so I doubt it really helps Microsoft all that much especially if you counted all the R&D for the hardware against it.

Contrast with Apple and Samsung, whose tablet sales aren't cannibalizing their laptop sales but are rather complementary to them, because the iPad and Galaxy Tab are a different product with a different OS than their laptops.
