    Finally got mine as well. Got just the Surface no cover in 32GB. Got it on the 16th of Dec and haven't really let it out of my hands since.

    I finally got my Surface today and it's installing the Microsoft updates as I type this. I've used my friends and love it. I'm not sure when I'll be turning my laptop on again.

    My laptop stays on my desk in my office at work now. I don't even bring it home on the weekend anymore.

    Just discovered I can have Wi-Fi at thousand of places throughout Thailand for less then 4 dollars per month. Don't think I will be missing 3G-4G any time soon.
    Really loving my Surface on my flight back to Thailand watched 4 episodes of grimm and plaid a few gams for an hour while I had music running in the background and left it in standby till we arrived home and it still had 38% battery left.

    Thought I'd just add I have a surface and love it. Does so much stuff I used to have to carry a laptop round for. Btw for anyone that isn't aware remote desktop (modern or desktop) works great when connected to a windows 8 pc. Its almost like having a surface pro!

    The battery life is absolutely awesome. Have been using it exclusively for the last two days and haven't even charged it. Mainly for games and browsing and just hit below 50%. All the folks out there hating on the surface have got to be nuts. This is a great device and so unique. I love the side glances I get at hotspots from iPad owners. They are probably wondering why a hard drive is dangling from my tablet, LOL. The apps will come my friends.

    I bought my Surface recently, and have been going through the phases with it. First one was defective, got it exchanged and hopefully this one works out well for me. Just have to get used to the different controls and shortcuts cause some things are different than my WP8.

    Could you post what was defective about it just in case anyone else runs into the same issue? Thanks and congrats on the surface!

    I thoroughly enjoy my Surface RT. It does pretty much everything my laptop did except a bittorret client. Can't wait for all the apps and games to arrive also.

    I just had a Surface fall into my lap :)

    My mum bought herself a 32gb + touch cover. She didn't like it. I went over to her place to try and show her how to use it (have had windows 8 since RP), but she just didn't like it. So she gave it to me. So I'm the proud, but surprised owner of a new Surface :)

    I just sold my ipad 2 and bought a Surface. I hope I'm not being over zealous but I just really loved my wp8 so much that I had to get one (I love the Surface too). I should get it next week. I might have purchased before checking one or two vital things that I currently do with my ipad 2 but decided to take the deal. Does anybody know if the Surface can connect wirelessly to a projector? I would assume so since it has Bluetooth but still any answers? Also does anybody know if wp8 can be used as a remote to control the device when synced to a projector for the purposes of PowerPoint or DVD?

    Any help would be valuable. Thanks

    I won a 32 gb surface Rt with the black touch cover last week in Vegas. I wasn't crazy about it at first, but it's really grown on me. It syncs beautifully with my two win 8 pc's, and the team viewer app works better than logmein on my android tablet. As an overall experience, having the ability to easily insert and view an sd card without mounting and restarts is awesome, and having a usb port is amazing. Once we get a torrent program running this thing will be great. I've been an android guy for a while, but I haven't picked up my xoom since getting the surface. The touch cover and kickstand make this the best tablet hardware available.

    My biggest gripes so far are the camera, which pretty much sucks, the lack of mobile data, and not being able to use a pop 3 email account. I also really wish I could use chrome as a browser, and wish it had a gps, as Google maps is ultra useful on a tablet. Lastly, I've gotten so used to talking to my android devices instead of typing, I really wish I could do the same with the surface. At least the Google search app is capable of voice

    Got my surface last week. I love it! I haven't put it down since! Ita a 32gb model with touch cover. I don't use the camera (that's what my 920 is for) All my pics sync thru SkyDrive to the surface anyway.

    I've had mine for about a month now. I got the type cover for it. I have to say it was a pretty frustrating experience getting it all setup, it's not nearly as intuitive as Android, iOS, or even Windows 7. It's no wonder there is resistance to Windows 8. RT is more powerful than iOS and Android, but if this wasn't the future of Windows that I need to learn for my job at some point anyway, I probably wouldn't have stuck with it. The very basic stuff you play around with in the store works great. It's when you dive in deeper to the more advanced features that it can get frustrating.

    However once all setup it does run well. I don't like Live Tiles as well as Widgits because they are pretty limited in their usefulness, but it is still better than iOS. The hardware is generally excellent. The kickstand and keyboard totally transform how this thing gets used. As we all know the speakers need to be louder. The case is a fingerprint magnet, but that's not an issue unique to the Surface. It feels heavier than it is, likely because of of the straight edges. Resolution could be better but it is acceptable. Apps are an issue but having owned a Blackberry a couple years back, I think it's ok and getting better every week. It has what I need. Profiles are great for the family, although they don't share things the way you would expect. Biggest irritation is that touches aren't as responsive as they should be. And by that I don't mean that touches are missed, just that the system doesn't always respond. I can see the touch and the change in the tile or button that shows I pressed it, but it takes a bit of a longer touch for it to actually do anything than what I'm used to.

    All in all after some time with it I'm really liking it overall. It has replaced my laptop. Not a complete PC replacement, but for personal mobile use it does all I need and then some. With VPN and AD support this thing could also replace my work laptop. But it can't yet. I was seriously considering a Lenovo Yoga 13 or a Surface Pro. Instead I went with an RT and a home server setup that gives me a much better mobile device and a better home device than either of those for about the same cost. I also considered a Transformer Infinity, which is easily the better performing tablet with a better ecosystem, but the quality and practicality of the RT along with the power and support of Windows RT won out.

    I'm still not convinced Microsoft really gets it though. To succeed in the long term they need to be more flexible and more open. That's what built them into what they are today.

    I just got the surface RT today (a little birthday present to myself) and I gotta say, I'm SUPER impressed! I'm already getting very used to the touch cover, and It's a lot better than I thought it'd be. Just gotta figure out what's going on with my gmail account and why it's not working. And how to set it so that it doesn't sync my facebook birthday calendar (so much easier on wp8). But ya, I LOVE it! Office is so seamless!

    Just got mine yesterday afternoon (right before our game night with some friends). Went through the "add a row" registry tweak, and like it more with the extra row added. I only got this for web browsing, reading in bed, and writing up word docs to eventually post the contents to a blog. So I imagine my laptop will get plenty of work out of me considering that's my real "on the go" work machine (mainly lots of coding). Still can't put this tablet down.

    Go to desktop click on the volume in the lower right corner then click on the top of the volume thing that pops up. Its an icon thingy. Then you can enhance the volume. My Rt has great sound now. Also should look into getting a microsd card for apps.
