I was first looking @ a Surface...but neither of them having a legit OS scares me


So, Windows 8 isn't a legit OS?



the problem with the surface is that its Windows 8 RT, you can't install x86 based programs onto it. Only with the Suyrface Pro which costa just a bit less than a macbook air. I dnt really have a budget i make decent money

The Thinkpad 11e that's coming in the next coupe of months should work well.

With the Air, you get a better keyboard and audio. But the Surface Pro 2 is the more versatile of the two, with a lighter detachable design with pen support.
The Surface Pro 2 also benefits from a sharper full HD touch screen and better split-screen multitasking.
Plus, the newer Surface 2 Pro's now have an updated i4300u processor over the original Surface 2 Pro's i4200u.

Because it's not a Mac.
