Use any peripherals
The Windows ecosystem of third party peripherals is huge, and that extends onto the tablet. Peripherals that work aren't restricted to the multiple monitors indicated on the previous slide, virtually any type of hardware that connects with standard connectors can be used with tablets.
Scenario: It is easy to connect a 1TB portable hard drive for handling lots of large files on the go. Not everyone will need such storage capacity on their tablet but audio and video professionals might find that pretty handy.
Snap view rocks!
Microsoft built the ability to run and display two apps side-by-side, a feature called snap view. This is a very useful way to work with two programs together. Snap view in Windows 8 is nice enough and improvements in the upcoming Windows 8.1 make it even better.
Some Samsung Galaxy Android tablets have this capability (called multiview) but it is more limited than the Windows 8 snap view. Any two apps can be snapped together in Windows 8, even the legacy desktop, while Samsung's method only works with certain apps.
Full-blown file manager
The Windows File Manager has long been a fixture on desktops because it is as good a file handler as that on any platform. The ability to perform any file function is a powerful feature on a tablet.
There are third party file managers for the iPad and Android tablets, but few of those are as powerful as the Windows manager. Windows 8 includes it in the box so tablet owners have it at their beck and call.
