Well the windows surface should be able to run anything that can run on windows 8, right? It has a USB controller on it.

It has a USB controller on it.Thanks for that, I'll try and follow it when it is actually released. Sounds like it might cost a lot more then a simple functional netbook however, which is all the Arduino platform requires.
Just wondering what might be available in the tablet world that might be able to communicate directly with an arduino via a USB cable? And I assume there in not and not likely ever will be a tablet that will be able to run the arduino IDE directly? I guess a netbook would be the most likely candidate for a small portable arduino support platform?
