Sure, I think you could get a Surface Pro or any other Windows 8 pro convertible and add the added MC feature. The problem there is that you lose all the benefits of the Surface RT platform (e.g. less weight, longer battery, etc). Maybe MS or someone else will add some functionality down the road to allow streaming of recorded TV shows, etc.
Speaking of PVR, do the MB developers have any plans to add PVR functionality either through a plugin or an update? I am sure anything like that would be well down the road, but I am curious if there have been any discussions about it.
