It's been a long time since I have had a piece of technology that really wows me. I've used BlackBerry, Android, Apple, Palm and MS products. I've enjoyed each of these manufacturers and OS providers technology. But, I've never been so amazed at any of my past purchases as I have with the Surface Pro 2. I have the 256 / 8 version. The last time I really went "Wow" was when I bought the Palm Treo. I know that seems lame to some, but to me it is a fact. The accessories I have purchased include: VGA and HDMI video adapters, MS Sculpt Comfort Mouse (for use at home), Wedge Keyboard (for use at home), Type Cover 2 for on the go, 64GB SD, SATECHE USB 3.0 Hub with Three ports + Ethernet, Snugg Sleeve and Surface Arc Mouse (for on the go) and a 32 GB Sandisk Cruz Fit USB storage which is permanently installed in the USB Hub for constant backup of my files. Being able to run games from the MS Store along with Steam games that support my Xbox USB controller is great! I have MS Office 2013 installed and I'm able to run multiple monitors. The VPN software our company uses runs natively as do all the applications which we have that are necessary for our company. These are proprietary software apps made for the PC but the run fine on the SP2. While I consider myself an avid gamer, I don't play competitively any longer. I used to do so with Quake, Unreal Tournament, Tribes, and BF1942. Now I enjoy single player games and the SP2 delivers. I have 27 games installed. Some of them are multi-player. But, I have lost my edge... Moreover, with my business travel I'm able to keep my computer in its sleeve through security where I used to have to remove my laptop from my carry on during security screens. I think this thing is incredible. It allowed me to converge my laptop, handwritten notebook, and iPad (3 devices) into one single device for business travel and daily usage. I'm very impressed with my investment and with both the business results and personal satisfaction I gain from owning one. I hope MS continues to invest in the (future) development of this platform with even longer battery, faster GPU, thinner & lighter hardware, and faster processors in the future. But for the next few years - I am 100% satisfied. This thing is rock solid, smoking fast, modular, and it delivers.
