Comment Surface RT is working for me at work (Score 2) 550

I take it to meetings and take notes with OneNote and switch to my calendar or e-mail or Office when needed. Also if I am troubleshooting something away from my office, I take it with me and connect to the Internet with a screen size that is preferable to a phone. If I need to do something not supported in the RT system, I can use Remote Desktop to a full-fledged Windows machine. Now, I could do some of this with an Android or iPad, but it's nice having the Windows interface. Also I prefer carrying the tablet around to lugging around a laptop. Having said all that, I still do 95% of my work at a desktop, and I'm not sure the value from the tablet is really worth the high price.

At home, I don't have any need for a tablet. I'm either doing involved stuff on a laptop or quickly looking things up on a phone.
