    I've just seen the update on the Verge:



    I hope you manage(d) to get yours.
    I was wondering why I couldn't find it on the Argos website :P

    It dissapeared from the website last night.

    BUT

    I found out earlier:

    Just found out the Argos Text Message & Phone reservation system still works.

    Click and Collect with Argos!

    1435306 (32 GB)
    1384921 (64 GB)
    Its possible however since the Verge announcement they have stopped the tills from selling them completely (but it still lets you reserve)

    I've just got mine. There was a bit of confusion about how and why I'd come to collect an item that I had reserved that wasn't even out yet, but I came out with it in the end!

    So the updated statement on the Verge is wrong. I guess Argos believe by pulling it from the website they have done enough.

    Battery still won't die.

    7 hours in, full brightness HD movie in a constant loop.

    31% remains.

    This all has been extremely encouraging. Surface is expensive and I was unsure I was going to be happy with spending a bunch of money when I already have an RT.

    *insert mouth drop here*

    That's incredible battery life... Just wow. I'm curious as to what the Surface Pro 2's battery life is. Sure, it'll be shorter, but wit the battery on the Surface 2, very promising. Thanks for the videos and intel, and again I say, you lucky dog! xD

    so they weren't kidding with 10 hours claim. Hell, with the right conditions you are talking 11-12 easy.

    just curious what movie is in a constant loop.

    Salt. First thing I grabbed from my network share.

    It looks really good with the screen on full brightness.

    Sound has been off the whole time. Which might save a bit of power.

    The thing I've been impressed with is how consistent the power drain is.

    Incredible, thanks so much for sharing. There's a battery that'll get you through the full work day, easy.

    I have to admit, I am very impressed with the Surface 2 so far. The hardware is incredible, and it is nice to hold. It is quicker, and the battery life is great. Can't wait to start using this properly at work!

    How's the kickstand? I got to use it for about 10 seconds, when I went to the Panos Panay event at my store. I was lucky enough to be chosen from the audience, and the kickstand felt rather stable, not wobbly like it is in the first position.

    I'm all the more exciting for my upcoming Surface 2 Pro. I suppose the fact that it's my first Surface ever, not just an upgrade, makes it that much more exciting! Tuesday will be fantastic. xD

    I hadn't done much research on the Surface 2 in all honesty (even though I've been looking for an RT tablet for a while), so I thought I broke my kickstand when I found the "other" position it has. It's a good angle - fab to have the choice.

    And much better for use in one's lap. They try to pitch this thing as a laptop replacement, so it damn sure better fit comfortably in one's lap. XD

    Good point, didn't think of that... yeah it's a very nice position for the lap - could take a photo if you want*.



    *photo may include my crotch.

    EDIT - Yeah why not.

    Someone on the Verge asked for my battery report might be interesting:

    Here you go.
