    What I would like to see is the availability of these apps on the Surface PRO, then it would truly be the perfect machine. Just before anyone thinks I am only windows based, I have Samsung 10.1 Note, various branded laptops, have used apple iPhone, run Server 2012 and Win8.1, and have an S3 as my phone. So, quite open minded, but find for work the Surface Pro is the MOST flexible.
