I stumbled on this forum when I was searching for accessories for the Surface. This was after visiting a local Best Buy to see how this device stacks up to my needs. I don't own one... YET, and I don't think I'm on here to be convinced for or against getting one, but wanted to get some feedback from real people that have been using one for a while. This would be my first tablet purchase, and I'm sure not my last. My primary needs for it now is a true mobile device that can last on a charge all day (8-10 hrs). Very basic usage, which will be mostly checking emails, browsing, working on Word, Excel and Power Point (mostly Excel). I don't think there are any tablets out there now that can act as close to a laptop, although I do wish the RT was a bit faster (ie. PRO specs). Also, nothing crazy like playing graphic-rich games or watching full movies on. Hardware: I do plan on getting the type keyboard unless there is currently a similar/better option (I don't like the lack of feel on the touch). I also will be getting a bluetooth mouse, possibly the wedge. I wanted to get opinions on whether it would be worth the extra $100 for the internal 32GB space. I was originally going to get a 32GB and then get a class 10 64GB SD card, but will I notice much down time in accessing the files on the SD? Whether I get the 32GB or 64GB RT, I will still get the SD card regardless. Software/Apps: Not too concerned here, I know there will be more out, I don't use half the apps installed on my Galaxy S3. I have Zero experience with Win8 though, as I'm using 7 on my lap top, but have heard 8 is good once you get used to it. I guess if I feel I need more programs, I would consider jailbreaking it down the road, but it'll definitely have pretty much everything I need on it out of the box. I initially considered an ultrabook, but it would essentially replace my laptop which would make my current one a big paper weight. It's a couple of years old, but does the job. Plus, there are no Ultrabooks out there even close to the price range of an RT with the portability, and what I'm looking for (touch screen, SSD). They will go down in price, but I was also hoping that by now the RT would've dropped in price too. Any truth to these rumors? I'd probably be close to a 50/50 split on getting an RT vs a PRO, but don't think I can justify the $300+ difference, especially with about half the battery life? I'd also have to get the MS office software separately So for those that have gotten the RT, any regrets? (I realize I may get biased results here), has it met/exceeded your expectations? Thanks to all for any feedback, advice!
