Why did you buy the Surface?

I'm fairly new to the Tribe here, but really liking what Microsoft is doing in boosting its ecosystem.

Since I imagine a good bit of everyone here is an early adopter, I was wondering what caused you to pull the trigger and purchase a Surface RT? Or did you hold off and preorder the Pro?

I see all these posts hating on RT or the Surface, but never any about the thought process behind the device and how it's actually being used. Just curious to hear what y'all have to say
