    I'll never buy an Apple product as long as I live, and I decided against a new ultrabook for now and want a tablet, and the detachable keyboard makes it more appealing.

    Who here is using the Surface with IM? Any compatibility issues with bots/software? Looks like the Desktop is only one component of Windows 8 and I fear some bloatware might slow it down, but that can he taken care of.

    Any help or suggestions are appreciated. My second choice is a Lenovo ThinkPad, which looks awesome but turns into a more clunky tablet.

    Surface is great, tablet when out and about then connect to a 24inch when you get home. The digitizer is great for writing notes and Ideas while on the go.
