i considered the surface, but then i realised that its quite limited on an arm chip. it tries to squeeze itself between the arm and x86 market a bit too much, but it lacks the app market of android and x86 windows. (not sure if im explaining that properly but i guess you can understand what i mean?) plus, it has the problem that i predicted it would, windows 8 is a space consumer and you end up with only 8gb or so free on the 32gb model, and 40gb ish on the 64gb model. i think i'll wait for the surface pro since i'll more likely appreciate the x86 compatibility and just keep my note 2/nexus 7 for more portable stuff.
