Please note:

IPADs,netbooks,Androidbased tablets, Microsoft Surface RT, eReaders, IPhones, Android phones and other similar devices are not recommended as a student’s primary notebook computer due to the various limitations of these devices. However, a Microsoft Surface Pro (not RT) would be an exception given that you also purchase the external keyboard and wouldn’t mind its 4 hour battery life.
