I use an old school (until new Mac Pro cones out) black Mac book with 3 external monitors, multiple external HDs, wireless KB & mouse.
(1) how well does the surface perform with an HDMI monitor attached: is it mirrored, or do you get two screens?
and, is the tablet now like a big touchpad / control panel?
(2) what happens when you plug an HDMI monitor into the iPad Air or retina mini iPad, while you're running Pages / Numbers?
Do you get dual functionality on both displays, or mere mirroring? This is where a pointing device other than a finger would be useful.
I'm used to plugging all kinds of crap into my slabtop on my desk when I'm working there, and taking along the bare basics on the road.
All this perceived having to choose between "either a laptop / net book / air, or an iThing" is myopic.
iOS will let a developer use an attached screen as a second workspace.
