I just purchased a Surface 2. I was skeptical of Windows RT so I waited. I have a couple of thoughts about it. 1. Its still windows at heart! When I set it up, I was very eager to play with it, but didn't want to let all the updates finish before I started playing with it. Bad Idea, as I found myself searching forums to fix the broken store, and failing updates. After the updates finally successfully installed, it works like a charm! 2. Sound is terrible on this device! Turned off sound enhancements which helped as little bit, but the speakers are very weak, and pop on this device! 3. Type 2 keyboard is awesome. I thought I ordered a touch keyboard, so I was surprised when I opened the package that it was the other one. But glad I got this one. After all the pain of getting it updated and getting it all personalized, I have to say that this device is great, and for what I need, Windows RT isdn not bad at all. I think the battery life and speed is worth the trade-off not being able to run x86 programs.
