    Hey everyone, so I am very torn on whether I should buy a surface pro or surface 2.

    I understand they are very different machines as the SP runs windows 8 and the S2 runs windows RT. I found a 128gb SP (with type cover) online for $465 or a 64gb S2 online for about $400. I want a table to take to classes and web browsing and such which makes me think that I should get the surface 2. But I'm worried that I will be disappointed with the windows RT OS.

    I do like the look of the S2 more and the longer battery life is nice, but the SP will have a faster processor and the full windows 8 experience. I do have a nice gaming laptop that I got only last year (so I'm not getting this to replace my PC), I just don't like lugging it around to classes everyday and think a tablet will do the job much better.

    I'm just wondering which tablet am I getting for a better value in the end.I understand the pros and cons of each but just don't know which device is actually better.

    OP speaking (decided to make an account for this thread)
    Another thing I really like about the S2 is the adjustable kickstand, is that a big deal to people? Is that something the SP1 is laking? Also I don't really care for the stylus. even if I got the SP1 I doubt I would use the stylus at all.
    Btw, the S2 I'm looking at also comes with a type cover
