    Congrats to you guys on your new Surface 2 Pro!

    How's the new kickstand?

    Are the two angles enough? Or do you want more adjustability?

    Cheers.

    It sounds a bit dumb, but the new angle makes all the difference. I always felt the Surface set on way too high of an angle. This is perfect (for me).

    I hadn't really used an old device much, but I find myself using the second angle a lot, so I say it's a big improvement.

    Love it but a bit more angle

    I love the kickstand but another setting with a bit more slope would be welcome though not essential.

    I'm a first time owner of a device running Windows OP having been with Macs since the early 1990s. I frequently sit with my legs up and the Surface Pro 2 on my lap so it is absolutely marvellous that I don't need to hold the tablet with one hand as I did the iPad. Also it is so light when compared to my Mac Pro. I don't even think about its weight. I read Kindle books as well as work from this device. My Mac Pro and iPad seem so 'last year' now!

    I hope you mean "MacBook Pro", not Mac Pro. Because I can't imagine anyone being able to hold those beasts in their laps for long. ;)

    I have a PM G5 and it weighs 47 pounds...

    Yes, such a little thing (the 2nd angle) but oh so useful. Suddenly makes it a lap-friendly device.

    Make sure you use the correctly terminology! It's lapability [​IMG]

    I hate that coinage. Reminds me of some slobbery messy dog.
