What's the best tablet for writing?

Episode 965 (27:33)

Chris from Lakewood, CA
Microsoft Surface RT

Chris needs to get a tablet for the work he does writing and proofreading. Leo says that a Windows Surface tablet is probably the best solution for Chris since he needs Microsoft Word and Adobe Reader. The Surface RT comes with Office, and would work just fine for Chris. It's lower powered and won't work with traditional Windows software, though. For that, Leo recommends the Surface Pro, but it doesn't come with office. Leo also recommends the Type keyboard cover. The Surface RT with type cover costs about $629.
