Well, I got the surface as soon as it was released, after 4 days I lost interest and arranged to send it back. Got myself a iPad 4............
5 days later, surface was still sitting in the box waiting to go back when I decided to get it our again, just for a go......
Its now 3 days later and I can't put it down! No idea why, but after the initial 'disappointment' I love it, apps are starting to come to it (a bit pricey however, angry birds star wars! Terrible price).
So, the iPad 4 is going back to apple. I'm giving the surface a go long term hoping the apps will come and the software keeps getting updated.
The good things about it are better than the bad. The touch cover is going back however, want the type cover! :D
