Hey guys, im still deciding whether to get the surface RT or some other android tablets.. Maybe u guys can help me out, I used to own a Huawei mediapad, but my only use for it was to watch videos or maybe read documents, didnt play a lot of games...

So right now Im thinking of getting the surface RT with type cover at $393 (student deal) for school and video (movies, drama, or nba matches..)

I will use a lot of excel, word, ppt for my final 2 semesters in school.. Also, Im rather sian of having to bring my laptop plus charger to school liao (almost 3 kg added together).. But with only 2 semesters left, Im thinking whether I should just get a MIC tablet plus those cheapo keyboards..

Anyone have use the RT extensively for its office software can give some comments on it? Thanks guys!

I've used it for a week before turned back to lenovo x230. Reason: Efficiency with laptop typing, quick jump lists etc. Especially with excel and power point and having fat fingers doesn't help either. So you might find it easier to carry a tab, but for me it can't replace laptop. Especially with MS Office work.

Depends on whether you used a type or touch cover as well.

I love the keyboard of thinkpads! The best option is to get type keyboard to pair with surface. I find it still great for office apps

likely i'll get the surface pro 2 when it comes out.
but will still wait for battery life confirmation first, coz based on the 2hr improvement...still not good enough imo.

Anyone have tried using Apple bluetooth keyboard with Surface RT? Will this be a better option than spending $183 for the type cover?
