[teknoids] Recommendations to 1Ls on Tablets? Surface?

I was asked to help my father-in-law with his (non-Pro) Surface Tablet.  I believe Microsoft raised Dante from the dead to create a 10th circle of hell for this type of experience.  I essentially had to resort to random swiping so I could generate error messages, the meaning of which I looked up on my laptop.

I've heard the Pro is much better, but the part of my brain that might believe that statement is irrevocably scarred by my go-round with FIL's tablet.

Subject: [teknoids] Recommendations to 1Ls on Tablets? Surface?

We do not recommend any kind of tablet to incoming 1Ls.  Our recommendations are pretty much limited to a Dell laptop or an Apple Macbook Pro.

Is anyone suggesting a different primary computing platform?  I am not sure what to think about the Microsoft Surface.  I don't trust 'em … no other reason but the fact that I know very little about them.  Windows RT is a bit scary to me for the same reason.
