As proof of concept that the new Windows 8 tablets can be used as a lawyer's principal computer, I have been using my Samsung ATIV SmartPC tablet as my daily work computer for a little while, and it works great. It has a 64 Gig SSD drive, which was enough space for all of my Windows productivity software, and I connect it to a big screen, keyboard, scanner, and two printers, and a label printer via the USB port. The micro HDMI out connects to the monitor. It is less than two pounds, slender, and I no longer even have to carry an ultralight computer around. I have the same scanner, printer, and monitor setup at home, so it works both places. It has an SD card slot, which holds another 64 gigs of data, and I have two 64 gig cards to swap. The battery lasts over 9 hours in continuous use, so I don't even have to plug in during the day. Here is a photo of the setup at the office. Printers and scanner are out of the view. Sweet.
