@MichaelSullivan - I agree 100%
As a consultant I have all my client documents on my laptop. I was at one client's office for a week, but had to attend a meeting at another client's office. Rather than disconnect my big monitor, external keyboard, network patch cable, etc, I grabbed an Iconia Tab W500 with W8RP installed, and went to the meeting. During the meeting an unexpected question came up requiring a document saved on my laptop. I reached into my laptop from the W500 via SkyDrive, pulled up the PDF, and printed 10 copies to the big Sharp MFP just outside the conference room and handed them out in less than 5 minutes. In the same meeting we were discussing moving to Exchange Server and several people wanted to know what Outlook looks like when using Exchange. I pulled the tablet off the keyboard dock and passed it around the conference table so people could have a look. I had Outlook 2010 running on the tablet connected to my Exchange 2010 account. There is no way an iPad or Android tablet could have done this. All my clients are Microsoft-centric with Office, Windows Server, SQL Server, XP/Vista/W7, etc. Having a Microsoft Surface for short visits & meetings that don't justify the laptop would be awesome. I can't wait.
