How important are weight, size and battery life to you?

Very important. I want an ultra-thin and light tablet with long battery life (up to 8 hours). I want a tablet that is always connected and always up to date.

I care most about processing speed and compatibility so I am willing to trade-off weight, thickness, and battery life.

Which Microsoft Office programs will you want to use?

I want to use Word, PowerPoint, Excel, and OneNote optimized for tablets. Microsoft Office Home & Student 2013 RT Preview1 comes pre-installed.

I want the ability to purchase and run the full Office Suite.

Other than Office, what kind of apps will you want to run?

From the Windows Store I can get the most commonly used apps, including games, entertainment, news, productivity, and travel apps.

I need to run Desktop Apps, such as Quicken® and Adobe® Photoshop®.

Will you need advanced business connectivity features?

I just need to connect to my work email.

I'll need to connect to a corporate domain and use features like Remote Access.
