    The new Surface tablets look very interesting.  I can think of several things it would be good for.  But Pro Audio is not one of them. You have to use the right tool for the job.  

    I have a desktop computer (6 core CPU, 16GB RAM, 27 inch monitor) for my audio work.  Why would I want to use a tablet?  That just silly.

    Just because you can, doesn't mean you should.

    Well, either device could still be useful for lightweight or mobile recording, say a band practice or even hooked up to the mixer at a live show (assuming the storage is adequate). But it would definitely need apps designed for the form factor to be anything more than "because you can".
