    Thinking about getting one but need to be able to run power points. Also, super dumb question I know, buy I'm assuming you can save things to a USB drive as opposed to the cloud or tablet itself?

    Another dumb question. Can you run iTunes on one?

    Yet another question, are there W8 tablets better than the RT that have office on them?

    You can use it for powerpoints if your projector has HDMI and you have a HDMI micro to HDMI cable. Yes you can save things to a USB drive. No, you cant run iTunes on it since it's Windows RT.

    You can also use an HDMI to DVI adapter plugged into the end of your micro HDMI to HDMI cable to plug it into anything with a DVI input, they are incredibly cheap on amazon or ebay.

    Yes I've done this. Hdmi works fine.

    This is what I use. So far I was able to connect the Surface RT to any projector out there without a problem. If the projector you use has HDMI then MicroHDMI to HDMI is fine of course.

    if MSFT will get off the pot and work with Nvidia to provide NDIS 1.3 drivers hopefully we can get Miracast support and then all you need is a miracast dongle that plugs into a HDMI.
