    Hi all,

    Hoping you can help. Hubby has started up his own accounting practice and wants to purchase either a tablet or slim line laptop to take with him when he sees clients.

    Our only pre-requisites are: we need to be able to sync it with our home PC (rules out any apple products), needs to have the Microsoft office package installed, in particular excel and he would also like to be able to have clients sign docs, so electronic signature is also required.

    I've looked at the Microsoft Surface pro and it looks like something that may fit the bill but I'm worried about the memory capacity, 128GB is the largest and I believe windows will take up roughly 20GB of that.

    Any ideas?
    Thanks heaps

    moved to correct forum.
    as long as slimline laptop has cd\dvd drive which is why it is called a laptop not a netbook & a vga port to hookup to external monitor say for a presentation than i would go with the laptop.
