Too ex already la and heavy.

Touch cover is unique as it is water and dust proof. Good for resort, beach use.

Type cover very good in typing fast.

Power cover no doubt extra juice 500g heavier

there's a proper use case for that.
normal usage as a tablet outside, can just use as it is without the cover of keyboard. this type usually just watch video, surfing net. not much productivity.

then there's the ultrabook type of use case, where people use the pro 2 as an ultrabook.

so, just need to bring the power cover in a sleeve or bag is more than enough. the tablet can just hold in hand.

for me...i might see myself using type or power cover at home as a ultrabook replacement. and detach it when moving around or going out and use just as a tablet.

but if planning to do some work on the go or work trip, then i would bring the cover along.

haha...then I have to wait a few months when I finally get the pro2?

I hope by the time my case is here...the pro 2 will be launched around the same time.

thanks for sharing. I find this product is really interesting and most likely will be incredibly useful as it provides multiple angles which my current surface pro 1 only limit to poor angle.
might consider ordering this soon.

Do provide feedback on the quality of the case :s13:

The case is not coming in Apr.. its been delay till mid-may, and if you take the default international shipping(US$10) it would take maybe another 1-2weeks. so end up maybe in June.. so you still have plenty of time... (*UPDATE: New delivery date estimated to be mid-May, 2014)

Anyway, why r u waiting? just go order one online and just ship it over if you really needed one.. You are right, you talk so much also no use, go and turn your talking into action...

Sell your case to me


You can pre-order it at FreedomCase | The freedom to use your Surface anywhere.

He doesn't have the case yet, its only just started tooling and production, takes a month before it ships from China to US before it gets shipped over to anyone in SG.

Their timeline...
March 16 - April 20*, 2014: Preparing machinery and tooling, and PRODUCTION.
April 20* - April 30*, 2014: Your FreedomCase and gifts get on a boat (we’re on a boat!) en route to our fulfillment center.
May 1, 2014 - May 14*, 2014: Your gifts start going out … and you start using your Surface the way you want!
*UPDATE: New delivery date estimated to be mid-May, 2014

You may like to check out ITC Chronicles: Day 29 – Video Editing and Movie Making with the Surface RT

Worth it or not really depends on your needs, do more read up and reviews, go to a store a play with it.. Think of it as a ipad/android tablet with less apps(its still very young) but with a useful msoffice 2013 in it. don't compare it with a macbook or a ultrabook. If its what you need and the price is right.. be productive... :)
