A 10" display to run the Adobe Suite is an excellent solution¡ And with that 64GB on-board NAND with only 23GiB available to users out of the box sure has plenty of room to install the Adobe Suite of apps with plenty of room for storing all those professional files¡ I'm completely flabbergasted as to why the Surface Pro and netbooks aren't the ideal machines for graphics and video professionals¡
I was commenting on using the iPad for content creation than say a Windows 8 Tablet that can run full featured apps. Yes, 10" is actually enough, Wacom sells a 10" tablet monitor the DTU-1031 for $750 and that's still very useful. Your right 23GB isn't a lot, well actually it's about 34GB when you move the recovery partition to a USB stick, delete it and then reinstall the OS. There is also a SD card slot which I use with SkyDrive, when data is saved on the SD drive everything is mirrored to the Cloud automatically. Since the SD/SkyDrive is mapped through the C: drive the tablet has 92GB of usable space.
I personally think the Surface Pro is useless do to the battery life being only 4 hours, I only mention the Surface because the original poster did and it seems to be the go to tablet people think about when discussing a WIndows 8 tablet. There are many other manufactures out there making these things and they are better at it like; Asus, Lenovo, Samsung, Acer and Dell. Some of the convertibles are pretty good machines as well, i7 processors, 1080P resolution, 256GB drives, 10 point multitouch, Wacom drivers, the lot.
Look I use my iPad for media consumption and for Music recording and it's great for that but when I'm doing work I turn to my Macbook Pro and my Lenovo Thinkpad Tablet 2. I only chimed in because people seem to think a iPad can do everything a Windows 8 (none RT) tablet can do and that just isn't the case.
