    Does anyone here user a Surface for any kind of CAD work? I know someone looking into purchasing a Surface who can't decide. He's leaning toward a MacBook. Basically the Surface does everything he needs. However, he does a lot of CAD engineering designs and is concerned there is no app for that on RT and that the Pro would not be a good choice. My simple thinking is the Pro would be superior given the pen and portability, but then I'm not familiar with the software side.

    I've used Visual Cadd for many years. It is running fine on my Surface Pro. It actually works better with a mouse though.
    I installed and played a little with my pc board layout package. It also works well.
    I suspect you would have trouble finding programs optimized for the pen. But they still work well with a mouse.

    Thank you. The work he is doing is creating design models for manufacture.

    I'll give these a try.
