...and? Yes, Surface RT doesn't work for a lawyer, but it wasn't aimed at you either. It was an initial foot-in-the-door to get everyone thinking about the possibilities of a "Surface Pro", and to get *something* on the market in the $500 price range.

Now with Surface Pro just days away from release, allowing all applications that worked on Windows 7 and Windows 8 to be installed and work (and likely many Windows XP programs too), and being very portable, it is truly the first desktop replacement as a tablet form factor. And if you miss the laptop experience, Surface Pro has that covered too with the keyboard add-ons and USB3 ports for extensions to mice/trackpads/external storage.

The only issue is whether the reported 5 hour battery life is able to keep up with an on-the-go need. That may be helped with a new keyboard/battery or a Version 2 Surface Pro that would likely include a more efficient processor.

Well, FutureLawyer?
