I'm impressed that you haven't had a landline for 12 years, well done! I personally hate land lines, don't really know why...


    I don't find the hybrid laptops all too pleasing to me. It just don't like the bulk of the keyboard and trackpad. The Surface Pro does a better job of it I find. It's the ideal tablet hybrid.
    Thats the whole beauty of the different designs, you buy what you like. A lot of the hybrids add more than just a keyboard and track pad. In some you'll find a second battery, additional USB ports, etc. I would think it would be a lot easier to use a hybrid with the keyboard dock attached, on your lap like a laptop than the Surface. In tablet only mode they'd be the same thing but different.
    I think you can say that's the beauty of Windows 8, new PCs, new user experiences, new user scenarios, delivered to all in what they like.

You can pop off a thin colored screen protector that is also a keyboard and prop it up with the kickstand and use the Surface Pro's digital pen possibly as a stylus for precise navigation and designing.
    Agreed. But it is the software that will be a deciding factor for many.

    I've sat on several boards and most of the time a lap top was of little use.
    I want to draw circles, underline, draw arrows and scribble quick one liners on agendas and reports.
    MSFT and other have demo'd apps that do just that. If it can convert MY handwriting to something legible I'm happy.
    Add something that links older agendas and reports the way Outlook does and I'm in Hog Heaven.
    My memory of what was said or (not) done has always been good but the promise to do it can be hard to find in three years of reports.

    Thanks. This (Microsoft Courier Booklet (Dual-Screen) - YouTube) is what I was thinking of but I'll bet OneNote includes most if not all of it.
