At the current price of a Surface Pro, I can purchase 4 net book PCs that are about the same weight, a bit smaller (less obvious) display, and has more power and features. http://www.bestbuy.com/site/microsoft-su...p;skuId=6244044

Cheers,

Please link that 500$ netbook that is more powerfull then the surface pro..

When you want a laptop with these specs you will end up with an ultrabook, they are about $1500


The microsoft tablet starts at $799 and those specs might be comparable to that $500 notebook. http://www.bestbuy.com/site/microsoft-su...p;skuId=6243036

Thats a wonderfull device... however, you may run short on power the first instance you are going to try and use it as a professional music system (i.e. DAW)

But its a wonderfull alternative for an ipad. and it has the attachable dock

But its not comparable to the miscrosoft tablets in power, they have the top line processors and memmory, this is only a lowend netbook processor... tough admittable its uop to most general tasks..

I bought a Surface Pro 2, 8.1 a few months ago and it outperforms everything I have had to this point.

There is a great tablet that fits your needs...

Microsoft surface pro 3....

And you can run apps on it, as well as professional windows software..

Its also more expensive then an ipad, but with the added keyboard it is the best of 2 worlds.. [/quote]



The Surface Pro does seem to have some real possibilities as an all in one device. Sounds like a version 4 is coming with even a possible 14" screen.
