Default First Impressions

Hello Everybody,

There have been a lot of posts from happy Surface owners, expounding on the great piece of kit that they just started playing with. These posts are wonderful and informative, but they also clutter up the Surface forum. So please use this thread to post in your first impressions about the Microsoft surface. It is also a great place to ask Surface owners about how well certain features are working.


By helping to keep the forum neat and tidy, you are helping the Development of the Surface!


Thanks Mates

Default My new Surface

I finally decided on getting the Microsoft Surface 32GB, my son monopolizes the mini and the better half likes the MacBook Air.

I gotta say that I really am digging the feel of this. I picked it up today at Staples for $299!!!!!

I'll have to review it more when I get home.

Staples has them in-store right now for $399...I found a $100 coupon online which they honored. It was a mistake actually, he said if I actually followed the "print" link, it would've said that the Surface was excluded from the offer. Since I ended up just taking a screenshot of the coupon and picking taking that in.

Hi , sorry for the late reply , I got it from John Lewis , it was on their www for approx. 30 mins on day of release , I phoned reserved it and picked it up from Oxford Street , I paid 75 for the 3 year warranty including accidental damage too.

Its fantastic , been playing Black Ops on it all weekend obviously with a load of other stuff too , but the 360 controller just plugs in and away you go.

Amazing bit of kit ........

I got both a PRO and an RT.

The pro is a laptop with it's pros and cons. It got lots of power and speed but it gets a little heavy due to that.

The RT is the true tablet. Cool, light and runs for ever. Only downside is the limited amount of apps.
IT has replaced an older W7 atom tablet (I did run W8 on it).

Primary use for the RT is surfing the web, reading docs (PDF and epub mostly) plus keeping me connected to my social networks

I love my pro. It is a bit heavy, but I don't mind due to it functionality. For me it is just perfect. I have a note 2, and I think that is about the best combo. Nice android phone, win 8 pro tablet. I have tried a few other tabs: ativ 500, and series 7 slate upgraded to win 8. The surface kills them. Best ever IMHO. :thumbup:

From an unlocked Note 2. Hmm...... Can you hear me Verizon, out on Uranus?
