    I should definitely be getting a Surface 2. Went to Best Buy today and took advantage of the $200 trade-in deal. Originally I was going to re-gift my Surface RT to my girl and get the Surface 2 for myself. Instead I used the extra money to get her the new Kindle Fire HDX. She's going to be way happier with that than my Surface RT. And I'm still gonna get the Surface 2 for myself. Two brand new 2013 tablets for almost the price of one, lol. A pretty good deal, IMO.

    Got my Surface 2 in the mail earlier today. Haven't been able to play with it much though yet.

    Want one, but honestly I can't see buying one when I bought a w700(i5) last year. It's pretty much a gen 1 surface without a sd slot and a bigger screen. And it really doesn't help that It came with a (admittedly cheap) dock, bt keyboard and case for free and if I want to have the same setup, i'll have to buy all of that stuff separately (and its all VERY expensive/overpriced). I want a surface (and I keep trying to find ways to justify the purchase )...but it doesn't make any sense for me to buy one.

    Well there's always the possibility of a trade-in or resale depending on condition.

    I'd say Surface 2 easily outshines any of the first wave of Windows RT devices but, on the other hand, if you wait another year you probably can count on Surface 2 getting a discounted price, and of course then there will be the third gen device.

    I'm going to answer "no" to buying a Surface2... Because I WON one!! :D
    Yes! I'm one of the lucky 500 #RemixProject contest winners who'll receive a Surface 2 and the Music Kit in 8-10 weeks when they ship! I'm very excited if you can't tell! ;)

    I am going to buy however doin so is not as easy as I'd like . First off i live in Guernsey which is dot the best place to obtain cutting edge hardware (unless it has an apple on the back ofc) but thats a different story .
    so i first try to buy one from microsoft direct by phoning them .however the very nice man did say that every surface 2 they shipped to guernsey got stopped at customs and sent back ..i mean huh
    but anyway i thanked him for his honesty and tried elsewhere. Here is where i found i slight problem the major resellers of the surface 2 i.e argos pcworld currys etc wont ship to guernsey:(
    so i tried john lewis who said they would , so i waited 4 days till the expected delivery date and instead i get a letter saying no tablet due to internal security checks ...huh
    so next option ..there is a company called ship2me which deals with this sort of thing to a backward island ..however i decided to purchace it from argos and use ship2me but as i ordered argos website crashed and was down for days:( so no receipt No or order No etc so couldnt get further in the prosses.
    as it is now i phoned john lewis about the last order and the very nice man said must have been a glitch and they deff send to guernsey ..
    so i ordered again . and this time just failed to prosses the order :(
    last option is now upon me ..i wait 10 days till a friend goes to england and brings me one back .

    i have never know it so hard to buy something that aint limited or rare.

    BUT i still cant wait to get one as i cant see anything on the market as good for what i want.

    I am considering upgrading my Vivotab Smart tablet for a Surface 2.
    However, this maybe a redundant question as I am aware that the Surface 2 is purely for modern apps but I just need some clarification or re-confirmation from you guys... can I install the Utorrent desktop client on the Surface 2 as I used the client quite frequently ?

    There is uTorrent Connect in the app store. It costs 2.99 and works in conjunction with the website. There's also Torrex which is free.

    Phone 4s (no longer using) and iPad mini trade-in = Surface 2. No regrets.
