    What about if your Office 365 is set up to use Federated authentication via ADFS? In which case your Office 365 account is basically your domain account but authenticating through 365?

    I still reckon RT with students using Office 365 will work well as a classroom device if HP & co. can't \ won't hit the magic price \ quality \ performance sweet spot with full fat Win8 tablets

    £416 ex VAT - Acer Iconia W510 10.1" Windows 8 Tablet - NT.L0MEK.002 with keyboard - Scan.co.uk

    SSD space is limited though so it maybe one for a good Citrix back end for full fat applications.

    Not convinced about how long that keyboard dock is going to last, also being Acer wouldn't trust the build quality
