It is a little bulkier, a little more Ultrabook and a little less "executive meeting device", and a little more consumer driven as far as having flexibility to be a relatively powerful desktop PC replacement. But I'm not a director... I'm a lowly middle manager... I have time for a leisure life every now and then...
The Surface Pro does strike me as an executive machine. The lower amount of storage and sleeves-up no-nonesense approach speaks to having a strong focus on professional use. The Stylus also seems to be something that appeals to the higher ranks of the corporate totem pole.
I'm sure with OneNote and the ability to insert doodles, sketches, and do quick and accurate handwriting transcription - the Surface Pro will be a formidable machine even in tablet mode, especially for the kind of uses you describe.
