For me IMO, if both budget and the lack of full fledged Windows apps aren't really a concern, it is still better to wait for the Surface (RT) 2.

The Tegra 4 processor should be better, and the screen is also much better (1920 x 1080 versus 1366 x 768).

Yeah it comes down to what one uses it for. If the apps (useful ones) store grows then this can only get better and with the above spec it'll be better and more integrated for those who use the MS ecosystem daily. I'm very reluctant to go Android/Apple for this reason.

At least for me. I feel that surface is capable of giving iPad a run for its money. Surface is really productive especially with the Microsoft office.

The USD500 difference is a bit much for the 256gb and 512gb versions tbh.

The only thing I see MS has is its office, and expensive price tag on the RT which cannot run windows apps should have been removed from their product line. They so confidence in their app growth.... check out their history of product which they have introduce market store or app store... not much is fill in there that can be primary usage.

RT for games nah.... Pro for games nah... that is why Android/Apple is around to eat that sector as well.

Yeah consider the current market price for one ssd at 512gb, if you do a comparison it should be around there...

Which is why people use PCs....who runs latest games on an Ipad/Android device? FPS type games can't be played well on a tablet full stop.

1) none in the windows store. If you're using RT, even more unlikely as someone needs to recode in ARM.

2) wireless/ethernet adapter - aka via network. Or use USB drive.

Wife's Surface RT refused to charge. Charger is ok so the problem is with the device. The online warranty service request site kept giving me an error. I requested for Surface agent to contact me. I got a call immediately from MS representative.

Explained the issue and gave my details. A courier will pick up the Surface and send me another one once they confirm the fault is not due to fraud, user damage, etc.

I will update once I finish the process. Do register the device and accessory online to see the warranty details and duration.

My wife loves the device but I am not too sure how good the QC is when this issue pops up after just a week of use!

Hi anyone of you have problem charging your RT? Mine has no light indicator after inserting the plug. Have to fiddle here and there for many times before I'm able to charge it. It's getting really annoying.
