Post your Surface usage scenarios
Ever since the Microsoft Surface tablets have been announced, I've been excited about it and thought of how I can use it on my everyday tasks. I'm sure a lot of you also already thought of how the "no compromise" approach of microsoft can be of good use to you, so now starting this post to get a glimpse of how you would use your surface.
-State which surface you would be using (RT or PRO)
-Try to cover a whole day of usage, from waking up to going to bed
-Bonus points for showing use cases where other tablets or devices couldn't have done it or would have been an inferior alternative.
-Bonus points for using other devices to show integration between different products (like windows phone, xbox, etc.)
Here's my scenario:
I would be using the Surface PRO.
I wake up and eat breakfast. While eating, I use my Surface to read news about the things I like, which are pinned on my start screen. I also check my email by simply looking at the live tile of the mail app.
At work, I attend a meeting a open OneNote and the stylus to take down, well, notes. After the meeting, I stand my Surface and use the type cover to type away some documents I need to make. I also connect my surface to an external monitor and connect via remote desktop to my dev machine (I'm a programmer) and start programming.
During lunch break, I play some casual games while eating and maybe watch some Youtube videos.
In the afternoon, I have to present something to I connect my surface to the projector and start my Powerpoint presentation. I also use the stylus to write on the screen as I present.
A co-worker wants to copy my presentation so he hands me a USB flash drive and I plug it in my Surface and copy away.
When I get home I charge my Surface while I eat dinner. Afterwards I suddenly felt artistic so I open Photoshop and whip out the stylus and draw away. After a while I felt tired and lie on my bed. I watch a few episodes of my favorite series before finally going to bed.
There. My day ends. :) How about you guys? How do you think Surface would fit in your daily lives?
