    MS Surface Pro 2 the only PC you need?


    MS Surface Pro 2 the only PC you need?

    By Patrick Marshall
    In 30 years of reviewing technology, I've never encountered a product that "knocked my socks off."
    To my surprise, Surface Pro 2 does. It nicely combines the light weight of a tablet with the power of a laptop.

    I just read this article and while I agree that this is a great portable laptop replacement, I am curious about the various other Windows 8.1 Pro tablet devices out there. It seems like the focus is on the Microsoft devices and I haven't seen (or missed) reviews and comments about other 8.1 Pro tablets. How do they stack up?

    I'm a little puzzled. You say that the device supports Bluetooth but you then go on to talk (in more than one place) about plugging in a USB Bluetooth adaptor to use a Bluetooth mouse. Does the device support Bluetooth or not? If it does then you shouldn't need to plug in an adaptor - just use the built-in Bluetooth transceiver for the mouse as I have done on my trusty ThinkPad X40 for many years. (I use the USB BT adaptor that came with the mouse to give my desktop Bluetooth capability.)
