I just have to say that after reading all the press about the surface pro as well as what people say about it on some forum sites and I think the surface pro is really under appreciated. I have been for the past three years been using an i7 quad core Sony Vaio 17" laptop with 8gbs of ram. I recently finally got my hands on a surface pro 128gb and have since replaced my work laptop with the surface pro. Right now (as I am typing) I have my surface pro hooked up to an external monitor via the mini displayport (which i might add I have done using an APPLE MINI DISPLAYPORT DONGLE) with a USB hub hooked up powering external hard drives, keyboard, mouse etc. This thing is amazing! Not only do I not notice a difference whatsoever between using my laptop and the surface pro, I find that the Surface pro runs programs aster! I use office quite alot for my job, so I have office 2013 and the surface pro runs it flawlessly (like I said much faster then my quad core laptop). Also, the pro tablet runs diablo 3 at nearly maximal settings. After searching around some i found some articles stating the pro tablet could run AAA games like borderlands 2 and portal. Basically the pro tablet at work functions as a desktop PC and at home and traveling functions as an ultrabook/tablet hybrid. I just think most of this can be attributed to really bad advertising by Microsoft....those commercials they have for the surface pro do not adequately illustrate the capabilities of this "tablet".
