That's a good price for the yoga, I picked up one at regular price and only paid 1160 once taxes and the warranty were applied. I took it back because it didn't come with pro installed and wanted to wait to see what else was coming out, but it is a really good machine.

Depending on the Major, if you are doing something like Business, I would highly suggest the Surface RT, if you are doing another field for example like engineering or something sotware related I would go for the 128Gig Surface Pro. I do not suggest the 64Gig Surface pro. Not worth the money.

I'm a student / research assistant and I commute to my university every day. I have to say the surface was the best thing I've ever bought. It saves my back from a heavy backpack. Also the wide screen makes it really ideal for reading PDFs. I used to print everything out, but not any more. I tried using a kindle however it was just too difficult to use as I read academic papers loaded with figures. As a student I live in office, so having it built in is a life saver. A few days ago my teammates forgot to do a presentation (and tell me about it lol) so while other people were doing theirs I did the who thing on my tablet. As soon as my turn was up I just plugged her in with my VGA adapter and viola...it was awesome. My friend told me she regretted buying her ipad. Windows RT might not be for everyone but for me its great.
Just my 2 cents. Buy what makes you happy and works best for you. If that's an iPad then get that. For me its the Surface.

No problem. If you have a chance to play with one I highly recommend it. Keep mind though that it doesn't run legacy windows applications. That's what the pro is for, but battery life and built in office is what sold it to me (also the sexy design). I hope you find the best device for you!
