I have both the Surface and an iPad, I actually find myself using the Surface tablet much more now than the ipad. Grant it, there are more apps to choose from in the apple store, however I tend to buy the apps to get me through what I need. I'm not an app collector that seeks out new apps and just download them because I can. If it provides no valuable functionality then I don't bother with it.
Surface compliments my laptop better because It does some of the things that my laptop does. Light weight duties, like file management, Box, Skydrive, and other light lifting windows tasks, not to mention the MS office products. I also love the surface interactive and live interface as opposed to the quickly aging ipad desktop. I'm not going to get rid of my ipad just yet, but if this trend of me using Surface more often continues, I'll probably sell my ipad and maybe even upgrade to a surface pro. Which might replace both my ipad and my laptop.
