Surface Pro

I picked up a refurbished Microsoft Surface Pro 128GB earlier this month, and I'm very pleased with this amazing little device. Since this little wonder runs full Windows 8.1, I've installed Photoshop and Manga Studio 5 along with a few other drawing / modeling programs and it has run it all with ease. I've even done some testing with Steam's "In Home Streaming" to play Borderlands 2, which ran flawlessly @ 720p. It has a few quirks, like iffy stylus accuracy in the corners of the screen that can make using PS menu a little tricky, and the battery life could be a tad better, but overall I'm constantly being surprised at what this Surface Pro can do. Just being able to doodle in Manga Studio at the park while my kids run around and play makes it all worth it.
