    Worth it or not

    With my old Surface Pro, I carried a 1TB hard drive. However, with the single USB port it frequently caused problems when I wanted to use other items. The main reason I went with the SP2 was to get the 512Gb. After I loaded all my data, I was right at 256GB used and I wanted to have plenty of...

    What did I do to piss off Bill Gates?

    Well, I have my SP2 512Gb :big smile: no thanks to Microsoft Customer Service. I was in Washington D.C. and stopped by a MS physical store to see if they had a different customer service number. The store manager was very helpful. Turns out they had a 512 they had ordered for a business that...

    What did I do to piss off Bill Gates?

    I wrote a previous post on how Microsoft cancelled my 512Gb SP2 order. "Well, this sucks I reordered another 512Gb SP2 on October 26. This morning, Microsoft cancelled my order AGAIN. No e-mail, no notice and no reason. There are no expletives that adequately express my feelings...

    Has anyone received a 512Gb Surface Pro 2

    I've paid two or three times the price of a SP2 512Gb for laptops and I like the SP way more. You can never be too young or have too much storage!

    Has anyone received a 512Gb Surface Pro 2

    As I posted earlier, my September 27 order for 512Gb SP2 was cancelled because AMEX screwed me over. My SP2 is ordered again and scheduled to arrive mid-December. Has anyone actually received a 512Gb SP2?

    Well, This Sucks

    I ordered a SP2 512Gb on 9/27. Estimated ship date, October 25. About a week ago, I get an alert from Amex about a possible fraudulent charge from Microsoft. I immediately call and tell them it's legit, but for reasons that no one at Amex can explain, they had already rejected the charge...

    Can you give us a timeline? When did you place your order for the SP2? When did you receive your shipping notification? This is worse than waiting for Christmas!

    OH Y E A H my credit card was charged sp2 on the way.....

    Me too! Later clarification: I got a "fraud alert" from Amex and confirmed it was legit. I called Amex and MSFT and confirmed that the charge was successful. However, it hasn't shown up as a pending charge yet. I'll check tomorrow. Even Later Clarification (10/20) - After calling Amex and...
