On the eve of a new iPad update, a good case study for using a Surface

The article makes an effort to follow through on Microsoft’s marketing of the Surface Pro as a competitor for the MacBook Air, but it fails to make any meaningful comparison to using an iPad Air with a keyboard in the same manner. Regardless, this may be useful information for some people. I know that if I needed to buy a Windows-based machine right now, I would consider whether a Surface Pro could meet my needs.
