    I'm undecided because for 499$ I feel the Non-Pro Surface just does not offers enough value for its price tag. The Pro 2 has more meat in its bones, but I think I can't afford it yet.

    Even though Windows RT has become a complete flop, developers continue to make ARM apps, likely thanks to the ease of creating both a Windows 8 and ARM version. I'm guessing that as long as Windows 8 continues to gain marketshare, RT apps will continue to trickle out. With that in mind, I feel comfortable about buying another RT tablet. I already have 4 computers running a version of Windows. I can survive without legacy apps.

    I would love to have a Pro 2, but the pricing... 1300$ for 8GB/256GB is a lot of money.

    Not going to buy. To costly. Paid $296.00 for my new 64gb Surface RT. Sure not going to pay $449 for a 32gb Surface 2.

    No. At this point the Asus T100 64GB model with full keyboard dock and Windows 8 at $400 is more appealing and cost effective at this point for me.

    I answered "No".

    Having picked up a 32GB RT w/TouchCover for $199 and the continued irritation caused by a lack of quality apps I find it impossible to justify spending $525 for a comparable Surface 2 bundle.

    No because im more set on the Pro 2. Surface 2 just doesn't have enough power to be used what I need it for.

    I like RT and am looking forward to implementing a private cloud, but find the Lumia tablet more appealing, especially with the Qualcomm hardware.

    I have a Surface RT, which I really love, but I'm seriously tempted to get the Surface 2 for the faster processor and 1080p screen. I also like that it's slightly thinner and lighter than the RT. However, I'm wondering if I should hold out to see what the Nokia Lumia 2520 tablet has to offer. One question I have is how does the Surface 2's 1.7 GHz NVIDIA Tegra 4 processor compare to the 2.15 GHz quad-core Qualcomm 8974 processor that is rumored to be in the Lumia 2520? Are they comparable, or would one be significantly faster than the other? I would love to see WPCentral do a comparison of the Surface 2's specs with the Lumia 2520's rumored specs.

    From what I gather the Krait S4 in the XPS 10 outperformed the Tegra 3 in the original Surface RT. I wouldn't be surprised to see the same here.

    I do not like the Nokia 10.1 screen ratio the Surface 10.6 is great for watching movies when flying. I hardly ever use the on board screens anymore. Also love the touch pad and type pads.

    I'm not getting the Surface 2, only because I will be getting the Surface Pro 2. Already have two Surface RT's.

    I'm looking forward to purchase one, and the Surface Pro 2 (to replace my aging Acer S3). I will keep my Surface 1 until Microsoft (Nokia) releases a "mini."

    I'm not decided. I don't know what mobile device will work best for my needs. I don't want to overspend on features that I will not use. On my list are the Surface Pro, Lenovo Yoga 2, Lenovo Carbon X1, and a Chromebook. I do primarily web surfing. Sometimes, I do need to do some .pdf creating and editing. The Chrome web apps seem to work well for me, as well I like using Google apps.

    Yep, I'm getting one.

    I'm almost as excited as an Apple fanboi waiting for the next gen iPad.

    I timed this completely wrong.... I binned my ipad for the surface 64GB RT about 5 months ago for 450 (so over $700).
    About a month later then dropped the prices by 120 ffs
    and now, a few months again, I find it's being superseded. , Hindsight is a wonderful thing, but I can't swallow the potential huge loss on my current RT ti get a new one... so I'll probably hold fire for the RT3 at some point.
    I don't really have any huge issues with the RT anyway.

    I got my Surface RT day 1 in Australia and due to the currency conversion paid more than US pricing. So I am in the same boat as you. To be honest, I don't have any issues with my Surface RT today. My issue is me, getting the Surface 2 is a want, not a need. :D
