Hey guys,

How would you feel about doing live performances in FL on one of the new Windows Surface Tablet Pro that's coming out in 3 months? The lesser RT version was just released and I am thinking of getting the Pro in 3 months because it has better everything. Since this will be Windows 8, I wonder how that will affect FL with crashes and whatnot. I know Macs are really popular for live performance but FL won't run on it and I want to try FL's live performance mode for performing instead of just importing tracks into Ableton.

The Windows Surface Tablet Pro will have an i5 processor, 4 gb's RAM and I'm definitely getting a portable 3.0 USB hard drive for VSTi's and soundbanks as well as an audio interface for the sound card problem. Would this suffice in live performances? What's your guys' opinion?

Since it would be 3 months since Windows 8 release, I hope they iron out any kinks. Also, I would wait a bit to see the performance and reviews of the Surface Pro just so I know I'm not buying anything that sucks. The RT version already has some good reviews though.
