"Functional tablet, but the OS does need some refinement"4.0 starson by gmcfalls
Pros: Thin and light
The kickstand is a nice feature
Screen aspect ratio, brightness, color saturation are all very nice
Win 8 is pretty easy to pick up and learn
Office 2013 is fantastic on a tablet
File System integration
Cons: Metro is not designed to share information between apps - this is frustrating
Not sure how well Office 2013 would work in Metro considering the above
Floating between desktop and Metro is frustrating
CPU seems a little underpowered
Price is high
Summary: Windows Surface RT works well and is fun to use, but it needs some refinement. I think the direction of Metro is a neat concept, but it has to work in development environments. I don't use tablets all the time because I develop software - it's important to share information between apps. If I'm creating a graphic in Photoshop or Illustrator, I want to quickly get that to Dreamweaver for site integration. For business, maybe I want to copy and paste a Pivot Chart from Excel into Powerpoint. Using Metro and Office 2013, this was complicated. For those reasons, I won't update my computers until I see a workflow that's designed for people who use multiple apps together or see those apps redesigned to be used with Metro. There are some neat possibilities here.
This works great for presenting in PowerPoint. PowerPoint 2013 looks great, and it connected easily with an Epson Projector. I can create the entire presentation quickly using the Touch Cover, but I found it difficult to copy information from different sources. Say I want to take a screen shot of a website, save that graphic as a PNG, and use that in a PowerPoint. This was more painful than it needed to be.
I also found it difficult to touch up photos. Perhaps it's buried deep somewhere and I haven't found it yet.
