I've needed a new laptop/tablet/thing for a long time and since hearing about the Surface pro last year, I became quite interested in it, as it everything I am looking for. I live in UK, so am still waiting for it to be released... I want something lightweight, portable, but still be able to run full windows applications. I need to be able to do word processing, play light games, and have a good display for my media. Hence I am thinking more Tablet/laptop as opposed to laptop/tablet (ie, the Lenovo Yoga.) I am about to go to university at the end of the year to study computer science. Would you recommend the Surface Pro? Or is there something else which I should look at?
Also, how long do you expect it to be until it is released in the UK? Could I just order from the US and would it work the same? Would there be any compatibility issues?
