Windows "The Surface is a nice tablet. The design and aesthetic are pleasing, the feel in the hands, particularly of the kickstand and magnetic cover connection is excellent. But is it worth buying on the day of release?" After these three reviews, I still want a Surface RT. As much as I think Metro - and especially its applications - has a long way to go, I feel like I should reward the fact that Microsoft dares to be different. Too bad Microsoft doesn't want me to buy one.

And to be honest, I kind of want an ARM device anyways to be able to dual boot android and have one device running both, but we know MS is banning that as well.

What you want is an Asus Transformer AiO.

jgfenix,

"What you want is an Asus Transformer AiO."

All I found were news articles about them having demoed the concept at a show over the summer.

I couldn't find anything like it for sale, do you have any more recent information? I wonder if bootloaders are genuinely unlocked (which goes against microsoft's requirements)? Can you install anything other than the manufacture's build of android? Do you know if the manufacturer build supports sideloading? Please send links if you've got them.

It's the right idea, even if the device was more of a desktop computer than a portable tablet one.
