    If this counts, I had an Acer convertible tablet in 2003, but that didn't work out too well. The touch layer (with stylus) made the screen fuzzy, and nearly unusable. I expect my Surface RT will be a tad better. 6 more days.

    Currently using a Touchpad 32GB with Android that I have promised to a friend. Previously had a Blackberry Playbook I got as a promo unit.

    Currently use Windows 8 on my desktop, so extremely excited to have most of that experience in a tablet.

    my love affair with apple started to wane this year. My ipad1 went from great to horrible overnight after installing IOS5 (and there is NO downgrade .. WTF??)

    I notice they're not allowing IOS6 on it, they should have done this with IOS5 too!!

    The whole itunes match fiasco .. paid the subscription - flat out full of bugs

    The last straw was the icloud/mail outage last month. Not so much the outage, just the way apple handled it.


    My Surface will replace my iPad1.

    I've had a Lumia 900 since launch and I prefer it over my iPhone 4. I will get the 920 at some point as well -

    I plan on upgrading my desktop to windows 8 - as soon as the games I play on it are supported on Windows 8 (the Secret World)

    I'm kicking my Nexus 7 to the curb. Never did like JellyBean after I got it. ICS is far smoother. Anyway, I hope to pay for the RT Cover with my Nexus 7.

    Nexus 7 is being sold...too many stability issues / apps not built or adjusted for app experience.

    Using a Samsung Series 7 slate for now, but will upgrade to a Surface Pro once it becomes available. The wife's getting an RT for Christmas, as she's coming off of an iPad1 and has complained already about it compared to her (fairly old) Dell laptop running Windows 8, which I did a few weeks ago as a test to see if she could figure it out. Well, she did, and now the iPad isn't good enough. Great for Microsoft, not so much for my wallet ;). It'll be the last iDevice for either of us - we no longer have iPhones (both of us with Lumia 900s) and we'll no longer have an iPad. The wife tried a MacBook and just couldn't get used to it, so she's still on her old Dell laptop with a battery that lasts about 10 minutes now - it's been relegated to be a kitchen PC, but the Surface should replace that nicely and also be mobile ;).

    You have to pay for a subscription for iTunes?

    Yes, I believe its $25 a year for iTunes Match.

    Trying to sell my 64GB Blackberry Playbook to pickup a 32GB Surface.
    Might try and do the same. Unfortunately even though I paid $500 for my Playbook, the 64 gigs are only worth $200 new nowadays, so I'll be lucky to get $100 for it. Might just give it to a relative if I end up getting a surface.

    My wife and I both have TP's. If the TP loaded websites without flaw, I would be satisified. But, we will stick with them for a while, at least until I (my wife) decides I need a new tablet. :D

    To be clear when I say "ditch" that can mean sell, not use anymore. i'm not going to sell my Transformer, mainly in my work I have demonstrate access to Windows apps and desktops from and array of mobile devices, all my sales reps have ipads, so I don't have to have one of those.

    Agreed. So many "This is not available for your device" as well as random freezing/crashes for me. And I used it fairly lightweight.

    Sold an iPad 2 to my sister just a couple days ago. Still have a Nexus 7 as well, which I'll probably keep around for a little while unless the Surface completely takes over. I like the size of the Nexus when in bed or playing games. I'm just glad I got rid of my boring old iPad though. Man, that thing just stopped getting used because it was so...blah.

    Replacing my Nexus 7 that I'm giving to my g/f. I really like the Nexus, but am blown away by the Surface. My only concern is the Nexus is a great size and worried the Surface will be too big for couch surfing while watching TV. Typing this from my Nexus.

    I've owned a bunch of tablets so far (iPad, Xoom, PlayBook, and Galaxy Tab 8.9) but could not justify the cost of the device versus the functionality that they provided. I do feel that the Surface will be worth the entrance fee due to the fact that it is essentially a full-blown computer OS, just minus the legacy app support. Another reason why I feel that I can justify the cost is that I know that it will work seamlessly with WP8 and a PC running full-blown Windows 8.

    I also have a nexus 7. It's a great device for playing games and reading because of the weight/portability and it's probably the most smoothest android tablet I've had. My only gripe about it is that it feels too much like a phone and can't really take notes in class with it, but for overall consumption device its great! The surface will be my tablet that can go do almost everything and if I need to run legacy I will use my desktop at home.

    I got mine today and after a half day of usage, I have to say my android tablets will get little if no usage from now on.

    I don't believe that I will be ditching my iPad 3 entirely, but I can certainly see myself using it about 50% - 70% less. This may change over time.
