Tablets to me are only incrementally better than working on my smartphone.
And while I love tech, I don't have any love for Windows 8. It's just such a poor disjointed experience as far as I am concerned. Down the road, I think it will get better, but right now I cannot use it for anything real.
I haven't had a side on a PC for about 10 years because I swap drives so much, plus it helps keep it all cooler.
I've lived with notebooks and laptops large and small, and the Windows 7 tablet ticked all the boxes that the notebooks/laptops did not. I only had to accept some minor compromises, but overall the tablet trumped the notebook/laptops by a country mile.
And yet you wont accept the compromises of Surface Pro and Windows 8, not that there are many."When you buy a tablet, you need to have genuine reasons for doing so, as there are compromises that you have to accept. Once you understand those compromises and recognise that they do not negatively affect your usage requirements, then it's a perfectly reasonable device to own''
So by saying that you should really love Surface Pro.I only had to accept some minor compromises, but overall the tablet trumped the notebook/laptops by a country mile.
As a desktop, Windows 8 offers no benefits over Windows 7, but foists on people the horrible MPI that few desktop users want or need. Windows 8 compromised everything that was good in Windows 7.
