Micorsoft Surface

I use air-display already it works fine. Can not personally stand Mac OS as I am use to windows and fits in with work.Also I had a Lenovo's for a while and looking to upgrade to a shinier gadget. Plus Yoga is just a bendy laptop rather than a tablet as the key board does not detach.
