I don't get that, if I was using a productivity device for those situations I would rather have an ultrabook/macbook air. They are just as portable and a hell of a lot easier to actually do work on. Tablets seem like fun toys to me, stuff I basically use my phablet for.

Not so fun when you snap touch cover onto it and start typing in your Excel 2013. Only work there, and no fun.

Lies, they are thicker and heavier than Surface RT and with worse battery life to boot.

Mostly because of Intel, if you made an rt ultra book it would be the same battery life and lower weight.

Yah it's called Asus Vivo Tab, better battery life than iPad, priced low at $500, runs Intel with full Windows 8, can take any BT kbd and mouse you throw at it, so its two devices in one. If you don't like separate BT kbd/mouse then take something like ATIV Smart PC 500 with snap-in kbd/touchpad. It is still Intel and still thinner/lighter than ultrabook, and with full Windows 8 with no restrictions like in RT. No need for your heavy/thick ultrabooks with dismal battery life.
