Hi All! You know, I looked at all the different selections and kept going back to the Surface Pro over and over. I bought it today, and yes my student discount was applied on the order (just got confirmation). The Ativ Q will be pricey; and, I really like Google products with pure Android (I have a Nexus 7 and a Galaxy Nexus phone). I also like the power of the Sony Vaio duo, but again too pricey - and Sony does proprietary drivers and very bad support. I hope I like it!
