    Really want one for uni, as my laptop is way too heavy to carry around.
    Only using it for Internet, music, apps, and word etc...

    Anyone had one to give an opinion?
    Thanks in advance

    Surface has poor battery life, a bit bulky and is the heaviest tablet i know of. Aswell, the vivobook will have more processing power and you can replace the storage to an ssd/larger hardrive. Im not so keen on windows 8, multi touch on a laptop though.

    I've read that the RT lasts about 8 hours which is amazing compared to my half an hour. The Surface has a memory card slot too?
    So which one would you prefer?

    personally I'd go for something like the vivobook (possibly one without touch screen but it all depend on what your using it for. Considering you've already got a laptop then buying another is a bit silly. Considering as well you'll just be using word and the web the surface seems the better option. Alternatively you could look at other manufacturer's tablets which use windows.
