I flew from Salt Lake City to Chicago today and sat next to a person using an iPad. I don't know about all the rest of you, but I love sitting next to folks with iPads. From the start, it was almost a contest to see whose device was better. It always turns into a 'gee, I which I had your Surface instead of my iPad'. It started with take off. He had his iPad out and had a case that folded up into a stand and set it on his lap. I took out my SP2 and promptly snapped off the keyboard and put the kickstand into second position on my lap. He looked over and saw how simple it was. The envy was just starting. Next, we cleared altitude and the 'ding' went off informing us that we could now use the pull down trays. He placed his iPad w/cover on the tray. I kept my keyboard off and just used the kickstand. Much better solution than the bulky cover. Then came the movies. He had iTunes and was using the App to browse movies. Then he launched a movie and it had very large black bars on top and bottom due to the 4:3 ratio of the iPad. I launched my movie and it was beautiful with small bars due the Surface's better 16:9 ratio. He kept looking over and glancing at my screen to compare to his. Just for fun, I swiped to my desktop from Video to browse the movies I had in iTunes (besides the movies I had on my SD card). He looked over and asked how I had iTunes installed. I told him that the Surface Pro 2 was a real computer and that I could install iTunes or any other application vs just using apps. Then came the split screen. While watching a movie, my calendar opened with an appt. It simply split the screen in two. I was able to keep watching the movie and also see the calendar invite. Again he glanced over and saw this. For fun (again), I pretended that the calendar invite was important and played around adding useless notes since I knew he was watching. After about 15-30 secs, I then dragged the screen over to close the calendar invite and return the movie to full screen. Awesome!! Then again for fun, I swiped to the desktop and went to file explorer to my SD card. I let him see that I could not only just browse movies in iTunes but also any .mkv movies on my SD card. I selected a movie that I have that's not even out on Blu-ray yet and started it. He looked over and asked how I was able to play that movie. I again explained that the SP2 was a full computer and that I could play anything on it rather than being locked into to iTunes. (BTW, not going to say which movie nor endorse having movies that aren't released yet). Throughout the flight, for fun, I kept checking the time by swiping from the right to check time, swiping from the left to check open apps, etc all while watching my movie just so he could see how simple it was and non intrusive to watching a movie. And last, for those who like the convertible PC/Tablets, when it came time to take off or land, the Stewardess' would walk down the isle telling everyone using an oversized PC/Tablet or huge PC (Dell, HP, whatever) it was time to put them away. When she got to me, I simply pulled off the keyboard again and now I had a tablet and was able to keep on watching my movie until we landed even though a had a full computer in my hands. The iPad user sitting next to me wanted more info on the Surface. I was glad to oblige him. Love my Surface tablet. Love my Surface PC. Love the form factor. As I've stated before many times, I will take the Surface Pro 2 any day over any other device, quirks and all.
