Hi there KingsIsle,
I've recently just lost my computer, and have been planning to buy the Windows8 Tablet/Computer.
I am just curious, is Wizard101 able to play on that tablet?

Hi, magnusgn,

I have a Microsoft Surface Pro running Windows 8. Wizard101 runs just fine on it. It installs as an "app" on main screen, not the desktop.

My 9 year old son, though, does not like it for the following reasons.
1) screen too small
2) finger input too imprecise
3) touchpad too small.

I purchased a Microsoft wedge mouse for him to try, but we haven't had time to try it yet.

I got the Windows RT Tablet and it doesn't work. I really need to get the surface pro.
