    Size is a big factor for me. I really like this Bay Trail M80TA. It fits in the front pocket of my briefcase and is always at hand. Shame Asus designed these to self destruct 2 days after the MS Store's 30day return period.:rolleyes:

    Weight: the TP10 could be about 1 pound vs. 2 pounds for the bare SP2, more comfortable to tote around.
    Price: I am still scared biking around with a $2000 tablet that has all my work on it.

    Joe would you get the ThinkPad 10 even with the surface pro 2?

    Have you tried the kindle app for windows? It does not even compare to the iOS version.

    Well at least I'd be tempted. I'm enjoying the SP2, but I could see myself as happy with a good skinny laptop and a lightweight slate for PDF annotation.

    What I should probably do:
    - Stay with the SP2, wait to see both the TP10 and the Helix successor
    - Decide between Helix 2 as only device or the SP2+TP10 dual device solution

    Basically, not sure. As for the Kindle app, that's not much of an issue. During the day I have the Paperwhite, and at night I read on my ancient iPhone 4. I don't seemyself reading books on a 10+ inch slate.

    Its really nice reading textbooks from the kindle app on the iPad but the windows solution isn't elegant.

    Because, as far as I am aware, Microsoft STILL hasn't got support for Connected Standby in the 64bits version of Windows 8.1

    Not bothered about a keyboard dock. But a kickstand and an SP type keyboard cover (with the little flappy bit as seen on the TP8 for exposing and activating the camera) would be brilliant. A thin, light and useful, but ultimately improbable set up...

    Price really needs to be competitive (with the original SP, not the SP2). If it is priced like the 128gb SP2 then I will be sorely disappointed.

    I thought the HP E1000 had a 64 bit OS?

    The 64bit version of Windows with Connected Standby was announced at a off site media event during MWC....
