I have been thinking about this for a while as well. I believe the "pro" version coming out in a few weeks will be able to. The real question is if windower will work.

Frankly I have been hoping SE offers a mobile version for quite a while. Not like the graphics could not be handled by almost any tablet.

Not sure if the windows 8 metro-esque OS screen is anything to seriously go by as it mentions "RT", but I haven't been able to get windower working with 8 at all.

What GPU is the surface using. I think that FFXI in windows will not run if the install does not scan an NVIDIA or ATI GPU.
