Having just had my hands this week on a number of these at the same time,
I'd have to go for the Surface Pro. Even though it's Windows 8, it will
have a lot of built-in and other AT availability superior to any of the
Android-based options. I was even able to run NatSpeak v11 on the one I had
for a day.
More so than any other tablet, it's possible to do real work, easy task
switching, and support for mainstream productivity apps (i.e. Office) is
already there. Plug in a standard keyboard and it's nearly a "real"
Even though it's Windows 8.
(I'd still rather have a real laptop)
