Hi All, am in US right now, considering if I should get the Surface Pro 2 256GB or the Dell Venue 11 Pro?

Any recommendations is really welcomed. Really in a dilemma now.
i really think the surface pro 2 wins hands down. power of a desktop and laptop (for work) and the portability of a tablet.

WIN! how much is it over there? can tompang? haha

may not be totally related. but i had my pro2 using type cover 2.
put it to sleep on tue night and it seemed ok. morning still had about 80% left.

but the following night wed night, i had plugged in a usb external drive with ethernet port via the usb hub. when i woke up, it was left with about 20%.

gonna try again and see if it was the usb devices draining it.
did you buy ur pro 2 online? the charger must buy a transformer?

Yeah, also being able to play soccer game on the go is a big plus!

Agreed that having LTE support will help a lot.

I'm also thinking of importing a SP2. Warranty may not be the biggest headache. Buying new should be safe. More worried about which online retailer is reliable enough to buy from.

Did anyone here buy SP2 online from USA? Has anyone tried Amazon or Ebay?

Lol. I also want. On the brink of ordering from MS store or Amazon.

From what I notice, there is a silent upgrade of SP2 from the 1.6 Haswell to 1.9 version. If buy the 256gb version, how to tell if that model is the higher spec 1.9 ghz model?

My surface pro1 charger also, luckily can change the head since its detachable. Changed with a 3 pin one that is a few times longer. The default is really very very short. I bought the surface rt charger for portability but end up using it at home because the cable is ~1m long
