Additional requests ~ anything other you wish to take into consideration? I was recently in a car crash that totalled my car, and destroyed my Elitebook. Luckily I'm being taken care of because of the many kind witnesses that also pulled me from the smoking wreckage. I am currently considering both the Surface Pro 2 and the Yoga S1. The Yoga is a little above budget, but I might be able to snipe one on ebay. I really like having the option to upgrade, which is not a feature on the Surface Pro 2. Are there any other options?
