Re: @Richard 12: Note on Windows 8
@Dave 126 for me it is the convenience of just having one device. Full stop, end of story. If I am working at my desk and go out, I grab the Surface and all of the data is there already, nothing to sync, no app incompatibilities etc. And when I get back, I plug it back into the dock and carry on. My notes from the trip are in OneNote in one window on one screen and I type up my report on the other.
And do you use it to make phone calls also?
I can use my iPhone 6+ for pretty much any tablet apps.
Oh, and it has OneNote on it, too.
When I want a real computer, I'll bring my laptop.
