I just got a Surface RT 32GB last Sunday, I have always liked what they looked like and found this one on Chicago Craigslist for $35.00 so figured out why not. I have never really been a big Microsoft fan especially since windows vista, and mainly use Mac for most of my computer work. I am a severe weather stormchaser and involved with emergency management as well as disaster recovery and most of the weather apps only work on a windows based platform. I have a windows 10 laptop and when my android tablet decided to self destruct....I found this on the craigslist ads and said well for $35.00 why not give it a try..... so far it is a pleasure to use, has awesome battery life and pretty much does what I need it to do. The only thing that I have an issue with is the touch keyboard, and I am sure that after using it for a while longer I will get used to it. I would prefer a regular type keyboard with keys that actually move so you know you have activated the letter you are trying to type but it is getting easier to use as time goes on. I am in the Chicago metro area and have only been in this area for around 7 years, originally from the dallas fort worth area.
