My System Specs

Default

The Acer W700, while having better battery life, doesn't have pen-input and it's keyboard solution isn't as clean as the Surface Pro, especially for travelling.

We also had a Surface RT at work too (for a VP) and it looked like a decent device. It was a bit clunky though and the Surface Pro is even thicker/heavier. You'll likely want to find a MS Store to go take a look at it first before buying.

I'm personally not sold on Windows 8 tablets currently. If you honestly see yourself using it in tablet mode frequently, then go for it. Otherwise, stick to the tried and true laptop design.
