    Sleeping didn't fix my camera either.

    Well at least the rest still works.

    Good morning, I am glad it's Friday.

    I hope sleeping worked better for you than it did for your camera.

    I have the slowest broad band available here, 10 Mbit down, 1 Mbit up, and I really don't know for what I'd need more.

    I won't comment about mobile speeds. I'm lucky to get 3G at work. :/ There's 4G available but I refuse to pay the absurd prices.

    We were talking about mobile speeds?

    I have 3G, if my phone would support faster speeds I would have them. My provider doesn't charge extra for it, there are others that do.

    I will admit, i love my iPad too, but i like my Surface 2 more, i get more use out of it. ;)

    Sorry if it sounds like a fanboy post, it isn't. :)

    Yep, that was Laura's mobile speed. I occasionally hit H+ but not full bar. Even if I do get full bar, it's not necessarily running at that speed.

    With Office (a more touch friendly Office than on the Surface) and Remote Desktop, and a Microsoft Exchange app, and OneDrive, I don't see what the Surface 2 would have to offer much more. Most of all because the iPad has the apps.

    Of course, you can connect a mouse or an USB stick, but I didn't buy a tablet to replace a laptop. When I need a new laptop, I'll probably buy a real one with my iPad in mind now.

    Using Office on a tablet without a keyboard, regardless how 'touch' friendly it is will be painful. I haven't used it on my phone since I've owned a WP. I've reviewed documents but that's about it.

    Surface 2 is useful in a different way but is way behind iPad when it comes to apps, if that is what you want. If you just want productivity then a Surface 2 will suffice. However, I can't agree with the price of the Surface 2. I find it way too expensive regardless how good the build quality is.

    I want to be able to make little changes to a document, and I want to be able to fill in values into an Excel sheet when I run an experiment. Most of all for the second one, touch friendliness is key.

    If I really have to work with Office, I have a computer with a big screen in my lab and at home, and I also have a laptop in case I have to work while traveling.

    I might have liked the possibility to connect a screen to the Surface, for presentations, but if I'm honest to myself I guess I wouldn't use it often.

    Apart from Office I don't see where the Surface 2 should be more productive. It offers no software to be productive. Windows 8 tablets are different though.

    Main thing is that Surface 2 offers true multitasking where an iPad doesn't. It has other features that are nice but I don't know enough about them to comment.

    I like the iPad's multitasking. I don't really see a scenario how real multitasking helps productivity on the Surface? (I don't want to be a pain, I really can't think of one...)

    Split screen yes, that can be an advantage I guess.

    We need someone who owns a Surface to tell us. :P I don't know enough and even when I ask people to tell me about Surface 2 I never get a straight answer. :P

    Split screen and USB ports are a HUGE advantage.
