MicroSoft Surface Pro?

I am tired, oh so tired of dragging around my M6400 around the world, it too Freaken heavy. It take up to much room in my bag. It really too big to use on a Airplane. The battery lasts like 45mins. I want to be mobile.

 

Has anyone installed Solidworks on a Microsoft Surface Pro yet? And if so what were your impressions?

 

To me you would want to get a 64gb micro SD card, a portable Tb usb drive, a Bluetooth mouse, and one of the type covers, otherwise storage would be limited.

 

Primarily while traveling I need Office, Edrawing, Dropbox, Skydrive, and Soldworks(to do concepting and rendering of concepts) mind you my parts do tend to be large and complex but not very many complex assemblies.

 

Really excited to hear when someone tries it.

 

At Solidworks World Lenovo showed off a tablet the was going to have i7, 8gb, and 128gb with a Ultrabookish keyboard. Wondering if I should wait to test it also, but the Surfaces type and touch covers really give you the tablet feel.

 

Please anyone who has a chance give me some feedback. My shoulder is getting sore.
