    So I am starting with a new company in two weeks. I will be doing a lot of design work, using Pro Landscape. I want to be sure that I get the right Laptop to use. Right now, I am looking at the Microsoft Surface 2 with the i5 processor. Any suggestions?

    HP Spectre x360 i5 or i7 or HP x2. I have Spectre and been very happy.

    I bought the new Microsoft Surface Pro last fall and love it. I run DynaSCAPE Design & Color and it does everything I need it to do.

    The only thing I wish it had is wireless capabilities like my iPad mini where I could get a cellular service to connect to the internet while in my truck or at a clients house.

    All that being said I would definitely buy another one.

    Depending on your data plan, you should be able to use your cell phone as a wireless hotspot, just make sure you have a charger. Or get a seperate MiFi

    Yes I think that when I bought the Surface Pro they set up my phone as a hotspot for it to use.
