I really like Microsoft's Surface Pro, so long as I'm using it as a notebook PC. As a tablet? Not so much . . .

- how does it compare to say a Transformer Prime/Infinity?Feb 18, 2013
- Thanks for the review! I have heard of it being used like a Cintique for photo work. What do you think of that? I heard it will run Photoshop OK.Feb 18, 2013
- Should handle Photoshop OK, but PS does love more RAM.
Haven't tried one of those.Feb 18, 2013
- Could you run a presentation off of it? I would really love a thin and light notebook to take on my trips where I present and speak.Feb 18, 2013
- I would have thought it's better to use as a tablet than a laptop, what with its small screen, touchpad, and cramped keyboard.Feb 19, 2013
- You confirm my worst suspicians. I'd like to use a surface (especially at work) but when I picked it up in a store it didn't feel at all right in portrait mode (which is how I use my ipad 90% of the time).
I can understand why surface has this stretch screen (good for films and snap) but for business use these scenarios are irrelevant.
So I'm hoping for a win8 tablet with the 4/3 format.Feb 19, 2013
- Doesn't look like it makes that great of a laptop either. It looks like it needs that kickstand because all the weight is up in the tablet part and not down in the keyboard. That wouldn't work so well in your actual lap on the couch.Feb 19, 2013
- The Type Cover is pretty good, and not that cramped.
It runs Windows. It will run PowerPoint. You'd have to buy a DisplayPort adapter for it, though.
I don't have a problem with it in my lap.Feb 19, 2013
