    I voted Yes. I have had a SP2 - 256/8 since launch. 100% satisfied.

    Happy? Yes. Occasionally annoyed with temporary glitches? Also yes. On the other hand, having dealt with technological problems has taught me a great deal about computer engineering. The basic design and build of the Surface Pro 2 still define a device that is better than anything offered by the competition.

    It's a computer made by humans so there will be issues. Love mine.

    LOL - that made me laugh. Right on, revmike. Seems like I should say, "amen".

    This too sums it up for me. While there have been some glitches, I've been able to work through them by searching forums, etc. Overall, I'm very pleased. And to your point, compared to what the competition [currently] has, this seems like the best fit for me.

    I can't put this thing down! Awesome for work and play.
    But this is what really sent it over the edge for me. Steam gave away Left 4 Dead 2 for free on Christmas, so I decided to give it a spin.
    It plays like a dream!
    So I output my Surface to my TV, link up my Bluetooth adaptor to my type cover and grab my Arc mouse and play from my bed.
    This is a pretty amazing device.

    For those that had the Surface RT first how much heavier does it feel? I read the stats but real life is different.
    Also I have a Surface 2 with great cameras. How bad are the Surface Pro 2 cameras?

    The Surface Pro and Pro 2 cameras are identical to the RT's cameras, fine for basic video conferencing or quick snaps.

    I really want to like it, but the 8-bit-like color gamut mine has is a drag. I'm a bit apprehensive to exchange it because I'm afraid something else will be broken on that one. ;)

    I quickly fell in love with mine, and it was defective. I can't stand MS, though.

    Get a replacement, no reason to settle. I've got 2 SP2's and a SP1, all work properly without issue.

    Awesome machine, voted a 100% yes!
