    Yeah. They can do that. But buying stuff overseas is not safe. Nz government is very strict with stuff. Especially getting stuff do e quickly. You know the Christchurch earthquake and everything. We have to fix everything up first

    I imagine it would be very expensive to order something overseas anyway.

    I've ordered things from eBay sellers in UK, but that was just books, so not much possibility of damage in transit. It was cool seeing the Royal Mail stamps on the parcels.

    I'll buy an OEM DVD of Windows 8 from NewEgg and load it on my laptop. I prefer a laptop over a tablet.

    YES, I'll be getting the Surface, hopefully a Pro, but RT will be fine as well. I'm still waiting to see what Nokia comes up with, but some W8 tablet for sure :)

    Then the kids/wife can have the iPad :D

    My mind is set on the Surface Pro; unless between now and when the Pro is released in the UK Nokia bring something X86 just as good.....

    I will be upgrading my parents desktop from Vista to Win 7. I always stay a version behind for them in hopes that most of the bugs have been killed. For me, I will not be getting anything new until something breaks, which I don't expect to happen any time soon.

    If the Surface Pro comes to Australian retailers, then I'll sure be taking a hard look at it.

    It actually could come to major countries.

    I have been waiting to gut and upgrade my PC for Windows 8. So that is the plan. Then, OF COURSE I will have to buy a new WP 8 of some sort (Nokia or Samsung) to allow for full use of the ecosystem. Than, OF COURSE sometime I will have to get a WP 8 laptop or Tablet, depending on prices and power and such for when traveling so there is a PC experience always at the fingertips.....

    I am such a geek.

    I will be upgrading my windows 7 laptop to windows 8 pro once it comes out.... Probably stick with my iPad as a tablet until either it dies or the surface pro comes down in price. iPad > surface RT, iPad < Surface Pro..... IMHO

    You haven't even seen it and already passed judgment. Wow! How is that USB port working for you.

    I Agree. A lot of people like the surface even the verge staff like it as well.

    I've got my iPad 2 on eBay this week, for this very reason. I've just grown rather bored with iOS in general, and given that I enjoy WP7 so much, figure I'll give Surface a try. It'll be interesting to see how it compares.

    It depends on price. If the surface rt costs like $600 and there is a tablet that will get the job done priced at $400 the surface will be tough to justify. If the surface is priced at $400-500 it will be hard to resist.

    However, I love 7-8" tablets so if there is a reasonably priced (<$400) one at that size I'm all in.
