Shopping for a Tablet or a lappy (laptop)

Hi PC Board friends & trollers.

I am the proud owner of a sexy & nice (imho, see sig) gaming pc and i am needing something portable to take for work use MS Office, maybe photoshop and indesign , a big maybe. I was first looking @ a Surface and iPad but neither of them having a legit OS scares me away from them especially with their current price tags. Im also thinking about getting a laptop. It would need to be extremely portable with a good battery life, 6hrs +. I like WIndows 8.1 and have been a big proponent against Macs because of their crazy price tag w/ what specs are used for them but Ive been finding a Macbook air more and more appealing. However I know that there are some good Windows 8 laptops out there.

Does anyone have any macbook air competitors that they can recommend to save some $$$. If I go with the air I'll probably wait for the newest refresh which is probably sometime this summer.

Thanks PC Board I love you, minus the trollers + haters.

So, Windows 8 isn't a legit OS?
