For me the Surface didn't replace a laptop - it replaced an iPad. I don't need a lot of power when I'm not at my desk, so I will never carry a laptop. Laptops are just too big and bulky. The Surface RT is everything I wanted the iPad for, but much more capable like a laptop. The Surface is not a full powered laptop, but the device you have with you is worth more than the most powerful device you left at home.
How true! Well said!!!!
