For a study which I am going to do, I can get the discounted Surface RT for the MS student pricetag (around 200 EUR).
I already have a decent and good notebook/gaming machine.
Is this Surface RT a wise investment for study purposes? To simply get it along in class, create some Word, Excel documents etc. for the course; not too big and heavy to carry it?
Or can I better invest 'a little' extra and go for a ZenBook, VivoBook or alike?
Can Windows 8.1 and further Windows editions run on it?
And... can it be upgraded to the Windows 8 regular/pro edition, or is this, because of the ARM-structure, not possible?
