Cost aside.. Surface Pro 2 or the HP Pavillion 11 x2?

Oh I see. And I take it you definitely want an x86 tablet (a.k.a. a regular laptop with a touchscreen instead of a keyboard) ?


I have a laptop, this is more just a tablet to reading, Netflix and relaxing.


an 32 gb ipad would be cheaper for those functions

do you really need full win 8 pro in tablet form @ $899?

In that case I would skip both the Surface and that HP thing and get a proper tablet like an iPad or any of the numerous Android tablets out there. I favor the iPad personally but Google, Asus and Samsung have Android tablets with good reputations.

I had an iPad, I'm kind of feeling done with the Apple dance. :/

I'm also thinking a Surface Pro 2, for Windows, also. :x I'm kind of tired of restricted OS's. :/

Well, despite the extra cost, I'm going with the Surface.
