saw a Surface 2 today in the store
I was in the Microsoft Store in Bellevue. They had several Surface 2's on display. I was very impressed. I didn't have my RT with me, but it felt a bit lighter. I was definitely much faster opening web pages, applications, etc... Much faster general responsiveness. The display was far better than the RT as well. The Surface 2 is a substantial upgrade to the original. I pre-ordered a 64GB model with a type cover. For approximately $650 I get a very portable device with long battery life that I can use for email, web surfing and light productivity tasks. I don't need a $1500 laptop for what I want to do, and I think more and more consumers are feeling the same way. And the Surface 2 is still a premium device. Cant wait for UPS to deliver it.
