    thank you :D i don't think the surface will have bugs? im getting the surface 1, i don't think i'll get surface 2
    i mainly wanna play with drawing pictures an stuff, if i can find good drawing apps that work with surface, and maybe some fun little indie steam games
    if you guys recon the surface 2 will be any better for that stuff then maybe i'll consider it, i also dont really care about battery life

    surface 1 64 $497
    might get the 128gb tho

    surface 2 $1126

    Go to JB Hi-Fi and and get them to price match the MS store price of $539 for the 128GB model, that is the academic price but they don't check your credentials so just say your a student if they ask.The 64GB is a little small on space when you consider win 8 takes up about 25GB,my 128 had only 90GB free from the factory, and if you add a usb of sd card it is way slower than the SSD.

    I went in their late in the day and just said "do you have these in stock and will you price match the MS store price?", this sets you up as a quick and easy sale and they will eager to make it as they have pretty tough daily sales quotas to make and can be desperate for a sale near the end of the day.

    For whats is worth I've had mine for a couple of weeks and had no bugs or BSOD's.
