An occasionally mobile tablet device might fit my needs. As the IT Director, I do end up going to several in-house meetings each day other meeting attendees have come to expect me to look things up and share them at the meeting.
Everything I have used so far has been a bit of a compromise.
I used to bring my Fujitsu tablet convertible. I like having access to all my network resources while in the meeting so that I can settle issues (or perceived issues) on the spot. It's handy but it is a bit bulky. I certainly would not carry it around all day.
I tried using an 7" HTC Flyer for a year. It's easier to carry but not well connected to network resources.
I just bought a Galaxy Note II smartphone (ultra-mini tablet) which handily replaces the Flyer. It's even easier to carry but still not as connected to network resources as I would like. I can remote into a desktop via citrix receiver but once you connect, you only have a 5" screen.
I think the Surface pro would be better than the Fujitsu because it's lighter yet still has the same functionality but I don't see me carrying it around all day. I see myself docking it at my desk until I have a meeting and using the Note II for those impromptu hallway meetings.
I'll keep you posted.
