The Microsoft produced Surface will soon be available in Australia and will it be the tablet / laptop for you.
If the Surface is to be judges on the Surface RT it will be a well made computer which runs the full version of Windows 8 but unlike the Surface RT it does not have Office 2013 included.
I like the Surface RT and consider it ideal for those seeking a basic tablet / laptop experience in a locked down environment which more people should consider as many cannot cope with a full version of Windows.
