does anyone know if there are issues w/ running AC20 on MS surface pro 4?

wife needs a tablet for work, and I'm about to head off to a conference and travel abroad for a few weeks and would prefer not to lug around a laptop for duration. i'll likely have to do some work on some construction document revisions, which is why I was looking at this option.

as for which model specs: the i7 core w/ 8 MB ram and 256 GB SSD.

would love any thoughts/concerns/successes.

I think you might want to spend a bit more on a surface book with a discrete graphics processor (or even more on the model with a performance base).
The software really needs dedicated graphics - something all models of the Surface Pro do not have.
