Thanks for the details; I might grab one. Likely will.I am using the Surface Dial with my Surface Book.
The Surface Dial sits on the tabletop next to my computer as a short little 1" radius, 1" high little puck. The interface is intuitive. When browsing with Edge, or Chrome, or Windows Explorer (file manager) or even iTunes, a rotation clockwise scrolls down in a very smooth and responsive way. Makes so much more sense than a mouse with wheel. If I press and hold it down, I get a haptic feedback vibration from the Dial, and a Surface Dial wheel pops up on the screen, allowing me to change the rotation function to volume, or zooming, or levels of "Undo".
Here is a screenshot.
Love this device.
