I gave my SP a real try as my #1 goto machine for work during the day. Yesterday I decided to go back to my desktop and downgraded the SP to just a nice tablet. Nothing against the SP, it's just that sometimes there is no replacement for a powerful and fast desktop at the office. Plus even with the extended monitor I got a bad case of small-itis trying to use the SP as a secondary screen. Additionally if it isn't hooked up to an external monitor it will be a lot easier to use my SP for actually taking handwritten notes. Just reminded me that anything with less than an 11.6" screen will always be an accessory for me and not the main act. Am just going to set up an automatic syncing to keep my SP up-to-date with what's on my desktop so I can run with it when I need to be away from the desk. Think I'll wait on something like the Samsung ATIV Q or the Dell XPS 11 before I consider a hybrid as a true desktop replacement. Surface Pro was close but just not quite there.
