    Yes, I did take the idea from "I got a surface 2" thread, but seriously, have you guys received your surface pro 2 yet? If so, what do you think? I have received mine, but I won't be home till 5:00PM.

    Edit: Here's a link to my unboxing.

    Got my Surface pro 2 a few hours ago. Got it set up and typing this reply on it right now :)

    Everything is awesome so far. Obviously it is much faster than my Surface RT which is the primary reason I went for the Pro this time around. Next, I'm going to be installing Lightroom and Photoshop to try out photo editing with the digitizer.

    I'm at home and loving my surface pro 2. I made a YouTube video of it from my 920, and it's uploading currently. It was 1.7GB, so...

    Got mine at lunch (128Gb) from Best Buy, so far enjoying having the SP back (I had the 1st one but moved on...) I have to say though, SP(2) is the most conflicting device I've owned in a long time! Beautifully designed but too thick and heavy, fast and fluid but has fans, great screen but Win 8.1 is still not great at handling high DPI. Right now though I'm on my 2nd honeymoon with it.

    Got my 128gb Surface Pro 2 and thoroughly enjoying it....very new to Windows 8 so im still adjusting. Although the device feels heavier than I expected its still amazingly portable.

    Ooh, really want to know how this works out. Seems like the SP2 would be great for shooting tethered, and the idea of editing in my lap.... :D

    I thought of that too; except the size of the files my Nikon pushes out - I'd kill my storage in 30sec flat :/

    I played minecraft on it though, running Fancy and Normal render. Got 45 FPS. Better than 15FPS on my Mac.

    I know, first world problems lol but seriously, I can say without a doubt that it's honestly the fastest PC I've owned. Haven't had a chance to play minecraft yet, but I'm definitely gonna try it out between classes tomorrow!

    Edit: yes, Roman still wants to go bowling.

    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.

    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.

    Picked up my 256GB/8GB unit today from the MSFT store.

    This device is a revelation. Simply put, I am floored. Tech reviewers simply don't know how to review this device. It's not a tablet. It's not a laptop. It's a SURFACE.

    Using this as a tablet is pure joy. You're not going to hold it one handed, but it really excels on your lap with the kickstand fully extended. Super comfortable. If you were on the fence, don't be. This device is insanely powerful, gets great battery life (I'm hovering near 8 hours now on the first charge!), and gives you ultimate flexibility. Even now I was using the device in tablet mode trying to type this all out when I realized.... WAIT A MINUTE I have a Type Cover 2. I popped it in and now I'm typing blazing fast.

    I will give a more detailed review later, but honestly this is the best purchase I've ever made. MSFT hit it out of the park.
