    I have had my share of surfaces. Surface RT, Pro, Pro 2 and 2. I also picked up a venue 8. I find of all the devices I use the pro when I need to do work and the venue 8 for consumption and email. The 8" device is great foe travel. I take it and the pro 2 with me when I fly about 2 times a week. What is missing from the venue is the form factor of the surface line. If they come up with a surface mini with a kick stand that can be used portrait and landscape as well as a touch cover that would be a winner. Weather it runs rt or pro does not matter at this size to me. From what I have seen of the terga 4 and latest Gen atom both perform well and get great battery life. I will give the Venue to my 4 year old and get the surface mini.

    Just waiting for the pre-order date and I'll get one. I also have a Surface Pro, but usually keep that at home. I rarely take it out of the house because I'm afraid someone will eyeball it. However, a Surface Mini would be great to have. I'd use it like I use my Acer W3, as a media and social consumption device and it would be more mobile than the Pro.

    I'd be very interested in the RT version with the new Tegra K1 chipset. It'd be my main media / reading / mobile gaming device.

    If RT, yes. I believe in the concept, after all.

    But, full-on Win8? Nope. If I end up using an x86 device, I'll end up relying on the desktop.
    And, that's really not manageable on an ~8" screen.
    Not at all unmanageable! My Venue 8 Pro is the best tech purchase I've ever made and full Windows 8.1 is very manageable with a free onscreen trackpad. :)
