    Add $230 to that for MS Office please.
    Office 365 allows installation up to 5 devices. So that's $0 additional actually, assuming you or your workplace already has Office. And I'd be really surprised to hear if your workplace doesn't have Office.

    Also, most (if not all) sub $200 Windows laptops come with 1 year of Office 365 for free.

    Right... so in the future, they'll only issue a phone, not a phone and a laptop.
    That doesn't seem feasible in the slightest. How is anyone supposed to write documentation/create presentations/manage huge spreadsheets on the road if all they have is a phone? Laptops are not going any anytime soon.

    I'm going to try something with continuum. quite a risk as well. I own a small retail store and we are now expanding into a bigger store. I will be a bit limited in relation to rent, décor, stock; so I'm thinking maybe use continuum to power the office? yes I can get a PC for cheap, not new, but I prefer to go fresh especially with what I sell (mobiles pc tablets) and the store will be mostly MS oriented....so why not show off continuum? makes a great sales pitch and "gimmick" factor...I do have my laptop for backup though!

    Way too big for me to carry a keyboard around. Is 6x4x1 really bulky for even skinny jeans?
    I want a surface phone with x86 so I can run desktop programs on my phone using the display dock. As long as there are enough unity apps, I can even do without an x86 chip. Not like I would be running my CAD programs on my phone, though, it would be nice if needed. I could only imagine it ever being needed once in a year, if that. Photoshop though, would be great on a phone. I have had to transfer pictures from my phone to PC run PS, upload photo back to web, download back to phone. Much nicer to plug into dock, play with photoshop and save image back into phone. Especially in vacation home where internet is 1mbs and that is if no one else in the house is using FB, twitter, Instagram, email, flight checks..... Have had my note 3 for 2 years now, and I want a metal phone. Not another plastic. Every edge and corner is mangled from very small drops. No, I do not and will not want a case. So close to getting back to windows phone, but I want a high end surface phone, not a plastic nokia.

    Not sure how I got to that one above. Just searched ebay for compact portable computer keyboard. There were a few different styles.

    Do some research before purchase. I have no idea what a good brand name is for these or how well they are supposed to work. Was just debunking the myth that are keyboard would be too big to carry with someone.

    Nope, it seems that Continuum does not include the Office after all.

    I got this one for my 950 : http://www.amazon.co.uk/Foldable-Blu...pUvbUpU3388498

    Excellent quality build, thicker than the MS foldable keyboard but I can use it on laps, and this specific model has a foldable case which can be used as a stand, which is cool.

    No problem so far, I've used with continuum or not (just to take notes when attending to a meeting)
