    Right now, I'm must using another family member's Surface, waiting until the Pro version to get my own. I definitely will be replacing my iPad2 with it! In fact, it was really funny earlier today when I went back to my iPad, and already was trying to switch apps by using the Surface gestures! I love that I can have a second app docked on the side of the screen, and how easy it is to go from app to app. Love it.

    And the current lack of apps doesn't really bother me either. One issue I have with my iPad is having too many stupic cr@p apps that I never use. Sometimes less really is more.

    All my subscriptions transferred over and I read my copy of this months NYLON on it !! :)

    To me Zinio on the surface sucks bad and my subscriptions did not transfer. I've been with Zinio since ... well forever. Back when pocket pcs were all the rage.

    Question, did you keep any of them, sell or return them before the return period expired?

    Currently the Surface RT is my only tablet. I've got an iPad mini LTE on the way though. I'm enjoying it quite a bit and Windows 8 was really made to be touched. The app selection is pretty sparse at the moment. Especially when it comes to media consumption. The iOS and Android camps have more video codec support at present and they both have SSH clients readily available, something that I need to be able to do my job. I'm sure both of these issues will be rectified in the coming months. I do plan on sidegrading to a Surface Pro when it comes out. That's likely to replace my MacBook Pro as my daily driver.
