If you are already used to windows, then I would say definitely!. If you are hooked into apples ecosystem it might be a downgrade as the apps just aren't there yet and the music and video store has enough but nowhere near apples.

It is the closest Tablet to a laptop replacement that I have owned. Go try it out if you can cause I heard staples should be selling them soon, and you can judge for yourself. I think you will appreciate what it can do, and see the potential in the OS a few updates down the road.
