How do you type on an ipad in bed?
Using the on-screen keyboard!
However, my point was that the Surface was supposed to be the best of both worlds (tablet and laptop) when it's actually the worst of both worlds.
e.g. you want to use it as a laptop, you have to have it on a flat table, you can't use it like that on your lap, or on an uneven surface like in bed (sometimes I might get a call in the middle of the night, it's easier to pick up the laptop and work from the bed).
If you want to use it as a tablet, you then have the problem of interacting with the desktop, some settings are still in the old control panel, others are in a metro style interface. Trying to use desktop style apps with the touchscreen is frustrating.
Microsoft should have promoted the idea that apps should have a desktop mode (optimised for keyboard and mouse) and a metro mode (optimised for touch). Have apps display in Metro mode when out and about, but have the ability to switch to desktop mode if you dock the device.
Those who are using the device as a tablet should never have to interact with the desktop, but sometimes at the weirdest moment you try and change a setting and up pops a desktop app.
We also know how frustrating it is the other way round too. If you're using Windows 8.1 on a computer, it can be very annoying if a Metro app pops up and takes over the screen.
