Real work with Surface Pro?

I have some problems with the Surface Pro. Essentially it's just a small laptop. What I read from many forums is that everyone want to do real work with this. Do photoshop stuff / video editing etc. Many ask if it can replace a desktop.
I dont think that would be a great Experience at all. To use any of this programs you would just use the trackpad / mouse to get around the UI because it is a nightmare to use it with touchscreen. And the 10.6" screen is not really good for doing work anyway.
so this could end up like the netbooks.
What do you think ? Are my concerns right ?
