Kingy: Beauty. Are you going to write up a review on it? For me it really is between these two and because the ASUS has 3g it might just be leading the way. Would be interested to here your thoughts.


the Asus VivoTab RT available in NZ does not have 3G mobile broadband

the Qualcomm Snapdragon CPU in it is slightly faster than the Nvidia Tegra based Windows on ARM devices

ask away any other questions you have, I've been using once since October


Wait it doesn't? Bugger. In that case I'll be getting the Surface. That's really annoying. Is there any sort of 3g that works? Or will potentially work soon?


the Asus VivoTab RT out there currently doesn't have 3G, but the 3G model is going through certification

Quick question: Have any tablet manufacturers announced refreshed models based on the upcoming Intel processors? Haswell + 4G = A fool and his money, etc. Well, more specifically, me and my money.

Expect the announcements in a month at Computex Taipei June 4-8

I hope that isn't true, no one is going to shell out top dollar for a Pro tablet at 9"

Loving it.  Would still like some kind of dock rather than having to plug external monitor and power in every time i'm at a desk.

That seems to be the opinion for the UK price as well.

My brother in the UK emailed me last night and asked if I was still serious about buying a Surface Pro at that price!
