I am pre-ordering the SP2 with 256GB SSD and 8 GB of RAM. I also will get the upgraded type cover 2. I sold my 2011 MacBook Pro to pay for most of it. My ipad 4 will go to my kids (where it belongs). . I will be able to play older games, yet run my data analyst programs, Scrivener, and even my fantasy world mapping software. For me, the SP2 is exactly what I have been waiting for. A true convergent device. What is everyone else doing? Going with the Surface 2?
