Really torn between these 3

Samsung Smart PC 500T is enticing because it can be both a tablet and a laptop. $750

Asus Vivobook x200 is a cheap laptop with Windows 8. $550

Surface RT is a tablet with a nice keyboard cover, but you cant run legacy applications. HOWEVER, it comes with Microsoft Office free! $620ish with type keyboard.

which one and why?

I sort of dont mind not being able to download and install programs onto my tablet, but at the same time, i like having the ability to do that just in case I need to.

is there any real benefit of having a tablet/laptop hybrid like the Samsung 500T? perhaps the tablet might fall off the dock or something? lol

im honestly leaning towards the samsung tablet, but... its pricey.. i hate the fact that the keyboard is separate too -_-

For me it would have to be the Samsung if you want a tablet. At least it has the full version of Windows 8, so you can, you know, actually install things.

edit- Torvalds is right, laptop screen resolutions suck.

I want that too but the keyboard is out of stock everywhere!! Do you think these new windows 8 tablets will get discounted on black friday?

They're new.. I have a feeling that they won't get discounted :(

Maybe somewhat, but they'll be cheap models if they do discount them any.
