I have waited for the Surface, I considered the iPad, but decided to wait for the Surface. I'm a pastor, and I use my device for about four things: 1) I use it for word processing, 2) I use it for Bible Study, 3) I use it for keeping my schedule, 4) I use it to surf the internet and handle my email. Ok, the fourth thing included two, so maybe that's five. I had an iPad 1 which a church member loaned me for several months. I didn't use it for word processing, but I did use it for: 5) Sermon presentation (I loaded my sermons on it in a reader and could sit it on my pulpit and flip pages back and forth as required). I waited for the Surface because I was hoping it would meet all of my needs and allow me to have one device for all of the above purposes. I understand that the Surface doesn't have the screen resolution of the current iPads; is it as good as or better than the iPad 1, which was sufficient for my uses? I understand I wouldn't be using my current Bible Study Program (Logos), but they had a pretty good App for iPad/Android, do they have one for Surface? If not, I'm sure there are others. I'm thinking of a Surface RT with a type cover. Any opinions would be appreciated.
