Quick thing.

My boss has been nagging me to buy him a good Tablet/Computer for him to work with. He wanted something that can run fast and it's VERY lightweight.

It needs to be full windows 8 since the program we use at work can only be used via remote desktop.

Now he does NOT want a laptop, so that's out of the question. There is a limit of $1300.00, so the Surface Pro 2 seems like the best option.

Any other good options or should I go with the Surface? My only problem is that the Surface screen seems to be sooo small. Only 10' inches is not very good for the long run.

It also seems I can only find the Surface Pro at their own website.

There is none at amazon or newegg, which sucks ass.

I was under the impression that was the point of the Surface as it is the only tablet to run a full desktop OS.

There are a lot of convertibles where detaching the screen turns it into a tablet, though I believe most are worse than the Surface Pro 2.

No, there are other tablets available that run Windows 8.
