Chime in: Does it make sense to buy the Surface Pro as a tablet replacement?

Microsoft's Surface Pro is the shining example of what a 2-in-1 device can look and act like, thanks to a beautiful touch display, useful kickstand, and performance hardware inside. There are also a bunch of useful accessories that really flesh out the Surface Pro, including the Surface Pen, Surface Dial, and Type Covers, but they're sold separately.

Windows Central forum member haiderkhokhar18 recently created a thread asking whether or not they should keep their Toshiba tablet or invest in the new Surface Pro.

Hi Should i keep my toshiba tablet or should i buy the surface pro


Judging by the original post, it seems like haiderkhokhar18 is just looking for a tablet experience, so it begs the question whether or not the Surface Pro is worth the money if you don't plan on adding the extra accessories that turn it into a true laptop. There are no doubt cheaper alternatives, but can they stack up?
