as long as youre good with a few quirks of the os and the current limit of apps available I see no reason why not to like it.Blackberry Pearl (8130) -> LG Optimus 7 (LG E-900h) -> Samsung Ativ S (SGH-T899M) -> Nokia Lumia 520-> Nokia Lumia 625

I bought it with every intention of returning it. I just wanted to play with it for a couple of weeks and I ended up falling in love with the damn device. It really is one of the best gadgets I've ever owned and I've owned just about every gadget that has come out. Just a great product in every which way.

my only real complaint about the surface is that i wish the screen was smoother...or maybe slicker is a better word. and if that's the only real complaint, then it must be a pretty awesome device. it's a tablet that overcomes the one real limitation of tablets (poor productivity).

So far my family (50,45,14,12,9) seem to love ours. The interesting thing is to watch how each of us use it differently. I tend to multitask, listening to music, excel and word docs, checking work email etc, I prefer the touch cover. My wife spends time on FB, Pinterest and likes the type cover. My daughter tends to spend time with pictures, games and reading. My youngest son doesn't use the touch pad at all. He loves the xbox game titles and the Nick app and of course streaming his favorite shows. My oldest loves Top Gear and facebook. I Will be taking mine on my next business trip and will be testing its functionality at my employers Annual Board of Directors meeting.
I would add I am not a technically inclined person. I set our home group with a old hp tablet, old Mac desktop, my daughters new Mac (from school)and a new HP wireless printer. The surface recognized each and the printer set up was breeze. The interface is really simple and easy to use. We look forward to expanded app choices and improved interface with Xbox.

Love mine! I use it more as a mini laptop than as a tablet honestly. Its overall a great device but does still suffer from slight performance issues and random resets. In all honesty this tablet will likely be traded up for a surface pro once that releases, as i feel the hardware inside is unable to keep up with the awesome software at times. Its overall a fantastic device and far more powerful than an ipad for sure.
