    Anyone run 3dmark ice storm on their Surface RT and Surface 2 yet? I'd like to see how they compare with the competition. Seems like ipad air with A7 gets 14,000, Tegra 4 android devices get 15,000, and snapdragon 800 devices get 17,000

    Sweet, I checked out the app on my SPro when the app first released, and neither it nor the surface 2 were in the database yet. Good to see it's there now. Thanks!

    S2 wins some categories against the Air but loses most.

    I've been avoiding using the onscreen keyboard because I thought it was awarded. I would usually use the split keyboard which is good but slow for me. Now I'm using the full keyboard option again and I'm getting pretty good at typing. The large, 16:9 screen is pretty good for typing on.

    Just posting these here because I realized they should be in at least one of these stickies lol.

    Also, I was playing around with the PlayTo using a MP4 stored on the hard drive. The S2 do a great job playing the video on my 360 (obviously ). I also learned something new. After the video started playing I could still navigate to another app and the video kept playing on my 360. I even put my S2 to sleep and the video was still playing. Pretty awesome.

    Thank you for posting those comparison videos. Considering the market seems to be around $200 for the surface RT would you say there is a big enough performance benefit to justify the extra cost of the Surface 2? When the two devices are side by side there is a definite advantage I just wonder how much I will notice during average day to day use?

    I know a lot of it comes down to personal use but, as a former Surface 1 owner, I very much appreciate the added horse power of the S2. For me, it's the little things. For example, using Xbox Music or Netflix on the S1 can be a painful affair. The apps are slow and sluggish, which is a shame because both apps are quite nice. But on my S2, everything runs nice and smooth. I don't play many games, though part of that is lack of options. Still, if gaming is your thing then you'll definitely want the S2. I will give the S1 the win in stability. The S1 seems to have less software problems, in my experience. Plus, there are some noticeable color banding issues on the S2 if you look closely enough. Still, I'm much happier with my S2.
