Hi everyone, this is my first post so please be gentle... I'm considering a Surface to replace what my iPad currently does. Basically I got the iPad as part casual browsing tablet at home, part business equipment. I've never been satisfied with it as a piece of business kit, largely because of the frustrating experience of trying to edit Office documents (and keyboard issues). So to get an idea of how Surface performs, I'm wondering how it is likely to compare - performance wise - to my current laptop, which is a 2-year old Acer Aspire. The laptop has a Pentium P6100 processor (dual core, 2GHz), 4GB DDR3 memory and Intel HD Graphics. I use the laptop for remote desktop working quite regularly (using MS Small Business Server 2008) and it's a bit laggy but acceptable. So the key question for me is whether Surface will be to remote desktop as well as the laptop? I'm unsure whether the lag is a hardware or broadband speed issue. It might help if I provide some other info straight off, which will all be informing my decision: 1. The key requirement for me is to be able to create and edit Office documents. I assume Surface does this well as that's its key selling point. 2. I need my tablet to be able to sync well with my office network's Outlook. 3. I'm not bothered about having too many apps available, though I do use eBay, Amazon, IMDB and Facebook regularly. 4. I have no need for gaming on my tablet. Many thanks in advance for your help!
