Seton Hall University in New Jersey just finished handing out Lumia 900s to the freshman class. Next, they will all be getting a Surface RT. So I would say yes.

I'm gonna be a high school senior soon, my laptop kinda broke so I need something that I can type on reliably(college esaays and stuff) and I may need it for stuff like power point. The fact that RT comes with free office(I never bought office, just downloaded similar stuff like open office haha) office and a keyboard designed to be ergonomic makes me want to get it.
And Seton hall giving away free lumias and tablets? Makes me feel like applying there! Expensive though lol

Neither approach is wrong, but you can't say since approach A wasnt good at that activity neither will approach b.

Do you guys think there will be some kind of app like "putty" in the Windows 8 store off the bat? like a SSH client?
This would make the Surface RT perfect and everything that i need for school!

MS Office on WinRT should be more than enough for most students. You'll probably want to get a full sized bluetooth keyboard for when you're at home though.
But some companies are coming out with some impressive looking full blown Windows 8 tablets and laptops. The Asus TaiChi and the Lenovo Yogo come to mind.

Your comment is sort of like telling someone the new BMW 5 series are excellent cars when they are asking if a Toyota Carolla would fit their needs.

I'm getting a Surface RT for university. I study theology, so all I really need is internet browser and Office. In addition I get a tablet which I don't have yet and a (hopefully) more optimized device for the size (currently on a win 7 netbook, ugh....). It also looks amazing and I just love the design idea of it.
That said, I would too recommend having a more hardcore device back at home. I have my gaming rig which I will naturally rather use when home, but I travel 3 hours in a train every weekday not to mention the lectures and perhaps some spare hours between lectures, so a good mobile experience is very important to me while keeping up productivity.
I try to use those hours on the train well, and I do end up doing most of my writing currently on the netbook. I somehow dont have any issues with the cramped keyboard, even if I use a full size keyboard hour-wise more at home, but I type longer texts actually on the netbook.
Beautiful Skydrive integration also makes thing a treat when combined with Win8 on home desktop and a Lumia 920 :D

I'm also looking for Windows 8 hybrid for university.
Thing is i sold my old laptop that was too big to be carried around and iPad 2 is getting old for gadget freak like me.
I'm set for Windows 8 hybrid like Asus Transformer Book and Surface Pro. Still that free office with RT really makes you think, i'm almost certainly already paying over 1000 euros from either of those above.
Knowing me i will buy whatever i get into my hands first.
