I take my Surface Pro with me to work. Not because I really need it but it's fun to have and I use it for taking notes and recording meetings. The rest of the day, it sits on my desk as I prefer my monster machine with multiple 24" monitors for coding. I like to keep track of news via twitter as well as use it as a picture frame. I've found that MetroTwit snapped to 1/3 of the desktop and Picture Frame Slideshow on the other 2/3 is the perfect setup. I've got streaming news and an awesome slideshow all day long.
