Yes a multi-position kickstand would be nice but this isn't about the possible angles of the kickstand. Instead this about the usability of the screen at the angle the that is included. The question is simple, do you have any issues seeing or using the screen at the included kickstand angle? Personally if I set the Surface at typing distance using the kickstand and touch cover I have no problems seeing and using the screen. At normal typing distance, on a desk, for me the screen is about 18" from my body and about 20"-22" away from my eyes. I am average size (5'10") and feel the angle is close to what I would choose anyway. The viewing angles on the screen are so good I could actually use it all the way to negative 10 degrees (90 is straight up and then tilt it towards you about 10 degrees) or so with the touch angle becoming a problem before the viewing angle (you sort of have to reach under it at that point).
