Re: Not Yet -- what about Surface?
The Surface is actually a very good device, but Apple has such a stranglehold on the tablet market, it's got a tough uphill climb.

Re: Not Yet -- what about Surface?
Curious to know whether anyone thinks that Surface becomes compeitive with iPad+Desktop combo. It certainly would be, cost wise.  But how about functionality?

Not Yet
This combo would only appeal to me if my tablet could do a lot more laptop-esque things when I'm on the go. And once that happens, do I need a desktop when I'm back at the mill, or just a monitor and keyboard that connects to my almost-a-laptop tablet?

Desktops? No thanks.
I'm not sure I agree with the tablet/desktop combo. I've never been issued a desktop for work purposes -- in fact, it would probably turn me off if I was (even with the tablet combo). Laptop/tablet combo is more amenable. It's all about mobility.
