Thanks for a balanced article. I also think there are good reasons for using each devices. I travel a ton and currently travel with a laptop and iPad and really don't want to bring both.
I really feel like the Surface will do this... when the Pro version comes out. I almost bought the RT, but the inability to access legacy programs was a big deal.
Especially since I want to install iTunes which will allow me to stay in the Apple Ecosystem.
Anyway, I am a bit overly excited about the Surface and started a blog to track my research before hopefully buying a Surface in January. Once I have it, I will chronicle my good and bad experiences.
It is still a rough work in process, but below is a link to the site:
