    Anyone else worried that we are all going to be completely underwhelmed when the damn thing actually arrives?!
    No, I'm worried that I might die of old age first though. All the cool stuff people are discovering, I want in!! I'm a developer too and I want to be producing stuff ASAP! I really want to be the first to port Transmission (a bit torrent client) for downloading stuff, into the Microsoft Store.

    Yup. It'll be very pretty and shiny and then I'll no doubt find very little use for it :)

    It's like going to see a movie after everyone has raved about it and you've waited AGES to see it - it's totally set up for disappointment.

    It seems to be completely unrelated from sources here and other sites I've spoken to.

    UPS are being arses as well, they won't tell you if you have a delivery coming to your address today, which is completely stupid because it would allow people to know if they should go home or stay at work. They won't even tell you if you have a van in your area and what time they'll be nearby, which other companies can do.

    I'm in the City, literally a stones throw from Monument. I'm hoping that it's already been delivered and that the post room will bring it up to me soon =D

    I've just had my 64GB unit delivered to me at work (in Birmingham).

    Though the shine has been taken off it by the unit no booting into Windows! Tries to automatically repair the unit, but fails.

    For those who have had their surface delivered, what does the order status say on the MS store website?

    Ordered on the 17th October.

    Got to the Startup Settings page, but it doesn't seem to register any of the key presses, so I can't get it to Launch recovery environment.

    Cheers, that enabled me to enter keypresses. It doesn't boot up into the recovery environment though, just reboots.

    Trying a manual Automatic Repair now. It's checked the disk. Still fails. And the log file it says that it's created doesn't exist.

    Going through the Surface service web site, and it wants me to drop the unit off at UPS. Well, that's not happening, as it's miles away!

    Well mine has just been cancelled, they requested the money twice so my bank declined the transaction. Now I have to re-order and wait 3 weeks for delivery :mad:
