    Actually you are wrong if you look into it the new Surface RT 2 can now be joined to a domain and gives you a login screen. You can even customise what apps people get through GP! I know we have 2!

    I was talking about the Asus Transformer that @Danp mentioned earlier. Sorry for any confusion.
    We both seem to have purchased some but I was expecting mine to be able to join the domain.

    Edit : I cant find anything that states Surface 2 can join a domain. It is still running RT.

    @alexbillbridgnorth - Are you referring to workplace join?

    Didnt realise before ordering
    Presumably if you have an MS EES license, you can re-install 8.1 Ent on these?

    quite difficult i never worked out how to get my vivotab to boot from owt but the internal drive though i suppose you might be able to run from in windows itself but if you brick it on your own head be it.

    with 8.1 you can use work folders if you have 2012 r2 server(s)

    Do we think that these tablets with keyboards are the way to go? Are there tablets which we can add to our domain, and have group policy security applied? We currently use desktops in our classrooms for teachers, would these also work? Do any tablets/laptops come with LAN or VGA ports?

    I have just installed Windows 8.1 Pro on to an Asus Transformer. Joined it to the domain and all GPOs are working. I wouldnt currently recommend a tablet to replace your teachers PC in a classroom. Portability is what the tablets are about.

    Are users still able to log in at home, so use the tablet as a standalone?

    I've been given the go ahead to buy a device to test but I want to make sure I get the right one. If there is one with a VGA or LAN connection that would be ideal.

    Very interesting? What medium did you use to install 8.1 Pro? Do you think you could get it to work with an imaging solution to streamline rollout to a lot of devices?

    I used the ISO from the VLSC website. I didnt even have to boot from it. I just ran it from within Windows 8.1 on the device.

    Has anyone managed to build these to a CC4 network? I tried to smart client it and didn't get very far. I have a Surface Pro.
