Yes, I believe it is. Surface 2 is very well made, relatively fast and lag free. Windows 8.1 RT is robust. For web browsing, streaming and light work using Office, it is very good. But be aware that it cannot run legacy x86 software and the operating system cannot be updated to Windows 10. Also you cannot install Edge, Chrome or iTune on the Surface 2 if these are important to you. Use Internet Explorer or other browsers instead. For that price, I think it is a safe buy.

I'll chime in with the chorus and say that it is definitely worth it. In many respects, my Surface 2 (NOT the Pro 2) is more "Pro" than my 12.9" iPad Pro.

I still use my Surface 2 almost each day. If you ignore its limitations it is in many ways better than the Surface 3. As example with Surface 3 you will need to put the device into hibernation because sleep will just drain the battery like crazy due to inefficiency of the Intel SoC (e.g. less than a day).
Your Surface 2 will stay in stand-by for almost a week!
