I hope they will get properly trained. Migrating from Win7 to Win8 without any preparation can be a little frustrating, I observe.

well as long as they don't need office the windows rt is usable, however if they do need office then they are getting the "luggable" pro version -- which is not really a tablet. but a convertable laptop ( and a bit heavy)

as it is - last gasp for the product line- surface rt no longer has shelf life in the US, and i never even saw either product in the wild
