    Thinking of getting the Surface RT and I have a couple of questions:

    First, should I purchase one now, or is a newer model about to be released?

    Second, I sometimes download TV shows from iTunes and watch them on my first edition iPad. Will I be able to transfer downloaded shows from iTunes to the Surface?

    Thanks in advance.

    For your first question: nothing has been announced.

    For your second question: unfortunately, Windows RT doesn't allow for classic programs, iTunes is a classic program and only apps from the Windows Store can be installed.

    Thanks for the quick reply.

    Re the TV shows, will it be possible for me to download them from iTunes to my PC, and then transfer them to the Surface? Will the Surface play that kind of movie file?

    You may have to encode the file to a format the Surface recognizes.
