If i win the surface i will use it create/modify docs, xls and ppt. As well as read surface forums on IE, browse the web. additonally i would manage my media center pc, windows home server and xbox with it. My playbook would be handed down to my son, but when he is old enough to learn how to use a real tablet then he would get my surface and i would get the newest one. Aside from all that i would use i to make my Apple coolaid drinking friends jealous!
