    For the "desktop luddites" out there, why do you think even Microsoft has said for a VERY long time that Windows 8 is a new Windows for new PCs? Do you REALLY think the new PCs being referred to by them are actually desktops?

    Ect., ect., ect....

    If that were the case that people go with android or ios, why is that someone I know with a Surface RT is giving up their laptop?
    Absolutely correct and then they go and buy an iPad or Android tablet, because that's what everyone else uses etc, etc, etc (it's not ect).

    You know one person who is getting an RT? Halleluiah! RT sales just shot up by 10%.

    Actually, the lady I know with a Surface RT got that as a birthday gift from here daughter that does medical software programming...

    And then there are the few people here who do have RT tablets... But it does go to show to me at least, that something like Windows RT can replace a person's use of a somewhat older laptop. The person I know uses Word and Excel on the RT as well as general internet feasting, which is what RT was basically designed to do.

    It's a good thing your friend didn't know about this, or she may have been toting an Apple/Android device: The Best Office Suite Alternatives For Android | Redmond Pie.

    Let's hope that she doesn't find out and that you encouraged her to buy an RT.

    Ummmm..... you should read a bit more because I already said the lady I know with the Surface RT got it last month for a birthday gift, from her DAUGHTER. Maybe it's time to go to bed and take nap?

    And all those "alternatives" on android are smartphone variants, not full out Office 2013 Home and Student. That isn't NO WHERE near ANYWHERE in the Samsung galaxy close to what android has.

    You said the following:

    I said:

    Let's hope that she [here daughter] doesn't find out and that you encouraged her [here daughter] to buy an RT.
    See the connection?

    But it may suffice. That last sentence is quite embarrassing.

    No, I don't see the connection as that's a typo....

    You seriously must be part of the main stream 24/7 news media as honestly, I've never seen so hell bent in twisting words around.

    I can see now why you like simple things, such as touch.

    Hi there
    I think the on going dialog between Ray8 and Coke Robot here should be moved to a Face book link so we could all also see their facial expressions while they are composing their responses to each other.

    I'm sure it would be quite enjoyable - and probably better than watching standard Saturday night TV.

    Cheers
