    Hi Everybody

    So do you want a Surface Mini?

    This is properly going to be 7/8 inches and rumored to have stylus input for taking note.

    Yes! I would want one. But sadly want and need are two different things.... I think it would be perfect for note taking. But I would prefer an intel atom based version.

    This is the same sort of boat I'm in - I'd like one but I'm not sure why it would be any more useful than the phone I have in my current situation

    Though in all seriousness, I'm mega-psyched for this device. Be a great replacement for my HTC Flyer. But the price has gotta be right.

    Oh yeah, I want one. Love my SPro and I just purchased the power cover, but would love a mini just to have when at work for basic media usage and reading online content. Doesnt have to be full Windows. I'd very happy with Windows RT.

    I'd want one. I probably wouldn't really buy it because I have to many services already... but I'd totally still want one.

    I don't need a full Windows, especially on such a small screen. I got my 15" touchscreen laptop to do whatever I need on a full Windows.
    My Surface RT broke (well I kinda broke it when I disassembled it haha) and I've been wanting a Surface 2 but it is just too expensive.
    So if Microsoft price this Surface Mini correctly I will be buying it no doubt, I've been missing my Surface RT for way too long.

    And I hope it has a Full USB 3.0 port... and as snappy as the Surface 2 because Surface RT was way too slow =v=

    I just hope I can type on it easily. If yes (and if drawing compatibility is added), definitely would buy it.

    I'd love to be able to sync it with my main computer. I know Microsoft is pushing the cloud pretty hard, but I'd love to conveniently have all my photos and music on a Surface Mini through syncing rather than having to access 30+gigs of files from OneDrive. Seeing how frustrated many are at the Windows Phone App, I'm not holding my breath.
    That doesn't change the fact that I would love to have one!

    I think the OneDrive thing is meant to be like the glue that keeps all your MS devices in sync. So yeah, I reckon we'll be using the OneDrive stuff for it. But I am pretty sure you can select which folders to sync on the Surface Mini and on your Windows 8 computers.

    Yes, I really want one too, and will probably buy it when it comes out. However, it is getting harder and harder to convince my wife I "need" another new device. There is nothing wrong with my Surface Pro 2. But I'd like to get a mini anyway.

    I can't help but think a surface mini will be another product Microsoft will have trouble selling. Things need to be stream lined. With the purchase of Nokia the surface and the Lumia 2520 are already over lapping. Maybe they should concentrate on fixing that issue by merging the best features of those models before just making the surface smaller.

    I voted that I want one, but because I don't need one, and most likely won't purchase one. I just don't see where it would fit between my Surface 2 and 8x. The Surface 2 is the right size for carrying around with me for most places and the places it's not, my 8x fills the gap. Ironically I could see this as more of an option if I had a Surface Pro 2 instead because I would be less willing to carry it around for purely consumption reasons than a Surface 2 just because of the price difference.

    That being said, if they can get it into a decent price range, $200 or less and get it out before Father's Day, a mini may be in the future for my dad. He does not have a smart phone, nor a Surface, but does have a 15" laptop. Unfortunately you go more than $200 and you might as well spend the extra, now less than $100 ($129 with touch cover), to get a 64 GB original Surface RT.

    So for me, want yes, need no.

    Yes and I do not mine paying $600 if it has the features I want. To me a tablet is not mobile if it is greater than 8". I currently have the original Nexus 7 looking to upgrade to the Surface Mini.

    The features I want are:
    Screen resolution of at least 1920 x 1200
    At least 2gb of ram
    64gb and 128gb storage options
    Support for 128gb sd card
    Real pen support and pen
    Micro USB (OTG) port
    Windows 8.1 RT upgradeable to the merged version of Windows RT and Windows Phone (no desktop)
    Very thin and light.

    Optional features:
    A dock with at least 2 USB ports, keyboard port and monitor port. The dock should also charge the tablet.

    I will buy a Surface Mini! I was just about to pull the trigger on a Samsung note 8 when rumors about the Surface Mini appeared. I am a lifelong Microsoft guy so the mini is just right for me.

    I would like to see it have voice cellular.

    I'd like one. I would have liked the Surface Pro 3, but already have an ultrabook. I feel a Surface Mini would be a great supplementary screen when I'm using my desktop PC. My parents could also use it for some quick browsing or Skype as well.

    Voted no (only 2 of us so far :D), I love Surface-brand and it's great that they are bringing a Mini version too, it's just not for me. I have no use whatsoever for a tablet of that size, but for those who have use, I'm sure it's gonna be one of the best tablets of that size around!

    My money will go towards the SP3 insted.

    What if MS made a surface mini with wacom stylus support, AND a 41mp PureView with dedicated camera button? Focus on notes, quick office productivity, plus photography and editing? Add consumption device features of 1080p display, Dolby sound, etc. Winner?
