    Surface RT was good, but the new Surface is great! It looks like most of the kinks have been worked out and we get a 1080p screen in a thinner and lighter package! The only screwy bit I see is that Office still hasn't been moved over to metro... but... freaking backlight keyboards, man! This thing is awesome!

    EDIT: and then it also comes with not only Office but extra Skype features and honking 200gb of Skydrive storage!

    Well I didn't wait, and I don't regret if for a second. But I definitely am excited about the Surface 2. The laptop we keep next to the kitchen is dying. I think I can convince the wife to replace it with a new one and docking station. And she can still undock it to play her games on the sofa. Something she can't do with the laptop. Maybe I should start letting her use mine now to start planting the seeds.

    According to Paul Thurrott the docking station is only for Surface Pros. I'll grab his link and find another one to back it up.

    Last accessory listed near the bottom of the page.
    TechnoBuffalo mentions the Pro and Pro 2 only.

    I was afraid of that, but it was a fun wish while it lasted. Still think I can sell a new one to the wife without it.

    Yeah, it looks really fantastic, and without reservation (app shortages aside). I really couldn't say that about Surface RT, which was very well designed but lacking in performance
