Surface is certainly not the "best laptop" out there, but it offers key laptop benefits that are missing in competing tablets.
On the tablet side, it delivers good performance (for this category), and offers a similar entertainment experience, except for the lack of games (for now we know it will change, as the majority of game developers develop for PC and Xbox).
