    A few online friends I know from gaming communities, but don't know anyone in RL. That said, there has been zero marketing or anything (yet?) in Finland, so unless you are tech sawwy, you probably wouldnt even know about it..

    I'm just annoyed about not knowing if Surface is even coming to Finland. I wouldnt want to settle with some other device either :/

    Dunno about NZ keyboard layout, but finnish uses a lot of and , so we need a keyboard with scandic layout. German layout has these and I would probably preorder the german surface right now if I got a confirmation that the language of the OS could be changed, but the US customer support said that at least the US Surface is locked to english and cant be changed, so I guess german Surface would be locked to german OS..

    A good number of my co-workers pre-ordered. But then again, we're all .NET software developers, so does that still count??

    No one I know is even aware of the product, let alone wants one. Heck, I work in IT and still know no one that is getting or even wants one!

    I wanted one until I saw the price. Maybe later on if apps take off enough it might be worth it to me, but for now it is too limited for the cost for me. Many of the things/apps I would need to make this a viable device for my work are not around. I'll wait on a pro possibly, or wait for the RT to hit about $300 before I decide it's worth it to me.

    My wife is considering one. She currently has an iPad 2 and a Titan. She is on the fence on whether she wants a Windows 8/RT tablet and to get rid of her iPad or to get rid of her Titan and get an iPhone 5. Its sort of contingent on how she likes my Surface and if she likes any of the Windows Phone 8 devices once she sees them IRL

    No one has anything but iDevices in my group of friends or in my office. Well besides the co-workers still on contract with their BB phones. I am trying to convince my mother to get one since she does lots of work on a laptop and this would have full office vs her ipad now.

    One of my close friends is getting one so I will handle it to see how it is. I will most likely get one too if I like it.
