  1. The Microsoft Surface, also known as 2-in-1 or convertible laptop would be ideal for me. Would be a great replace for my 10 year old IPad mini thats becoming to mini for me to see as I get older.

  2. The Microsoft Surface is at the top of my Wish List because it has a touch screen, A1 built in, & long life battery charge!

  3. I would like a Microsoft Surface which has 15 hours of battery life, is lightning fast with a Intel Core H-class processor and GeForce RTX 4050 graphics card. It would be great for creative projects.

  4. Microsoft Surface, because I dislike being tethered to my desktop all the time. It is smart enough and loaded enough that I can pick it up and be creatvie on the go.
