Work has me scheduled for an upgrade of my laptop, and a Surface Pro 4 is an option.
Its got an i7 -6650U processor w/ 16 gig of memory. (Same basic specs as the laptop that they have available.)

I've been out of the computer/tablet shopping game for a bit, so I haven't been paying too much attention to how well the Surfaces are standing up as crossovers between laptops and iPads.

I run Revit, Autocad, and Photoshop a lot, so it needs to keep up.

It would be nice to trade in my i5 3340M laptop and iPad 4 and only have to travel around with one device.

Thought from the crowd that has kept up to date on this stuff?

I don't but I have a friend who uses it. He has a docking station with 3 monitors at home and docks it there and uses it. Takes it with him it becomes his tablet / laptop. He seems to enjoy the setup. Not sure which Surface he is using. Got the setup about a year ago.

Thanks.

There's two other people in my division that are due for an upgrade too.

My boss and I were talking to the IT guy this afternoon, and he's going to give me one to demo first.

I can give it back if it doesn't work for me. Win win!
