    Do you think these revised versions of the keyboards will be compatible with the previous generation of Surface devices?

    As far as I know, all the accessories excluding the power cover will work for the originals. The power cover will only work for the original PRO, not the RT. But the keyboards should work just fine for both. Again, maybe I am wrong, but I would think they would work fine.

    I will definitely buy the backlit keyboard!! For sure, I will! It would be a godsend on flights/ while traveling! I may just hold off upgrading to the Surface 2 this time around - have spent too much money over the last 6 months on gadgets - iPad, Win 8 Phone, desktop!!!! I've really got to stop this madness!

    I love the new keyboard options, but I feel that these covers could never replace the ease of use and productivity of a full keyboard you find on ultrabooks these days. They are however certainly better than using the on screen keyboard that many people do with their android/ios tablets

    do you guys think it would be worth it to return my rt (still in 2 weeks return policy at futureshop) and pay an extra $100 for the new one. I know they say its faster and stuff but im fine with the rt. would the new tegra 4 speed really make a noticeable difference?
