    I use sites like CodeAcademy, Lumosity, and Duolingo often on my desktop computer. Can the Surface 2 handle sites like these well enough? Also, does the Metro Internet Explorer support flash?

    I think most Microsoft fans are trying to stay away from the fruit lol

    But the Surface 2 is one of the fastest web browsing machines I've used. Loads pages very very quickly! Also full Flash so that beats out every other tablet!

    Yep. Its browsing performance is probably its best feature as far as my needs are concerned.

    90% of my usage on devices like this is browsing and it was the first thing I tested when I got it. As fast as my desktop in most cases.

    Be careful. Some sites require Java or plugins, neither of which are supported by MS IE on the Surface 2. I strongly recommend getting access to a Surface 2 and using it on the sites that you need to use. But just don't stop at visiting the page and logging in. Make sure that all multimedia is available and accessible. Things like interactive whiteboards, chat sessions, video, audio, etc.

    A new Microsoft store is opening up near my house, so I'll check it out when I get a chance.
