    I think the new pro looks amazing. I would upgrade for the battery life alone, but it has so much more to offer. If I can find someone to buy my current surface pro I will definitely make the jump. So who else is upgrading?

    I am on the fence. I am very happy with my current pro, and I think the power cover might be just enough to get me by for a while. On the other hand, there is a lot to like about the pro 2. I think if I do upgrade it will be after the power cover is available.

    Nope. I'm going to use my Pro full-time for another year. I will buy the Surface 2 or Mini, will see what the Mini is about first...

    You get the free 200 gig cloud space with the purchase. That's pretty impressive

    I hope the mini happens soon. Do you think it'll have the kickstand? I wish windows 8 looked better in portrait. I think in the next version of windows, that the start screen should flow up and down when in portrait mode. It would be a good transition into converging windows and wp.

    I current have and use a touchpad that works fine in portrait. However, thinking about it I rarely if ever use it in portrait mode. I wouldn't think a surface pro not looking good in portrait would effect a user like me. Why do people want the portrait mode better? I assume games maybe.

    Will the power cover work with the 1st gen Surfaces?

    My 8gb/512gb Surface Pro 2 is on pre-order with the Microsoft Store...what else is an uber-geek to do? Seriously, it is a ridiculous amount of change to go from 256gb to 512gb, but I NEVER regretted going all out on memory or storage, but I have ALWAYS regretted every time I "settled" for a lower than max configuration. Besides, my office manager will go bonkers if I upgrade again in the next three years

    I do want to get a Surface Mini, if there is one, then when Surface 3 comes out, get that as well. Current Surface Pro is too new and has plenty of life in it. I'm always next to a power outlet, so battery time is not an issue.

    It will work with the original surface pro, not the rt.

    Hanging with my 256GB original Surface Pro. I have it where I want it and despite not having the cash for the difference (after selling this one), I am pretty happy with it. I did get a Touch Cover 2 and plan on getting the power cover later. It has a lot of life left in it for me.
