    Here's my unboxing video of the pro 2 and type cover 2. Sorry it isn't like WPCentral or The Verge, but I was in bad lighting, had a 920, and holding it with 1 hand so I could only do the unboxing with one hand. If you can, please like the video and subscribe.

    Hey, I couldn't understand you when you were describing the type cover. What was your opinion of it? I got the blue one and I really like it.

    I liked it a lot. I didn't get a chance to review both devices yet, but I am liking the type cover 2, except the trackpad.

    Got both my Surface 2 and Surface Pro 2 today and both are fantastic. Now if we can get MS to put cellular and gps in one or both the world will be round again.

    You can get those USB things to plug into your pro 2. I don't think it works with RT though.

    Officially got my 128gb/8g this afternoon. Overall I find that the system is a lot quicker. News app and IE seems to load quicker. Installed batterybar and it states I already have battery wear of 4.7%??? What? I remember when I got my Surface 1, it didn't have any battery wear at all until after a month or so. Weird. I'm happy with the "upgrade" and will be giving my Surface 1 to the gf. MS should have came out with this last year when I first bought it. Sigh.
    There's a 128/8 version??

    Picked up yesterday. I enjoy it BUT the type cover needs work. So hard to type accurately

    No, there isn't.

    Anybody having issues where the touch cover 2 stops responding and needs to be removed and then reattached for it to work again?

    Same. I really like it, but the trackpad could be better. Although, honestly, I don't even use the trackpad because I usually just touch the screen, so it's not that big of a deal. Even when I have it plugged into a monitor to use as a desktop, I just plug in my wireless mouse.

    I'm downloading black ops 2 multiplayer on steam now, and will play it in 1080p, so I'll let you know how horribly it runs. 😉

    Not crazy powerful but wicked music app, FL Groove is just awesome...great touch screen interface version. I'll still be loading my FL Studio 6 but a great companion. I'm loving this device more and more :)

    I got mine at launch midnight. 256 version and so far I'm liking it. My boss told me to evaluate it and see if it can replace a laptop. One accessory I'm really liking is the surface mouse. It is so great and smooth, it does beat the type touchpad. Waiting for my docking station, two monitors and MS wedge keyboard to really give it the full test.

    Let us know how games from Steam handle?
    This. Civ 5 is my only addiction of this sort. The original Pro could handle it, but it was a bit laggy and I always felt like even a standard sized map would exceed its ability. If the Pro 2 handles Civ 5 w/o issue, I know it's powerful enough to look at replacing my workstation with a Pro 2 and docking station. I already know it's fine for VS2012, and the like; it's just the graphics that have me concerned (and the heat).

    Alright, I played black ops 2 in 1080p, and it was surprisingly good. The shooting and aiming glitched a lot, as did looking up and down, but I blame that on the type cover 2.

    I can't wait! Also, for the XBOX One version as well! It's just a pity that there won't be an ARM version however, for Surface 2 users.

    I think the looking up and down could be fixed by an Xbox controller. I don't see the trackpad as being good for gaming.

    Picked my 128GB Pro 2 up on the midnight launch at MS Store @ Oakbrook Mall. The Surface Challenge was great and the party mood was definitely there.

    Loving it so far.

    Isn't that what joysticks are for?

    I know, I just wish it was a better trackpad though.

    potentially, but a lot of PC gamers enjoy a keyboard and mouse setup, so making a gaming blade would be like a gaming keyboard.

    Could you imagine playing Halo 5 on it and using a Halo themed gaming blade? That would be awesome!
