Since pre-orders open up this morning, how many Neowinians plan to order one?

 

Personally, since I dropped cash for the 1st Gen Surface RT this past summer, I'm still satisfied with mine, soon to be running 8.1, and unless Microsoft offers credit towards a Surface 2 (they're considering something along those lines), I don't see myself upgrading anytime soon.

 

However, once pre-orders open up, I'll be placing an order for a new type cover. The backlighting has me sold!

poll requires you to give an answer for all 3 sections so even if you aren't buying one you have to mark that you are.

 

also, I wish I could buy one, but I cannot justify the cost being that once you throw in the cost of the touch cover you can buy a nicely powered gaming laptop (the one I bought can play just about any current Gen game at max specs and it was only $1049 before tax.

I am so tempted to order one of the Pro 2 models, just need to see the UK pricing once pre-ordering opens up.

 

Might wait a while to see (couple months) to see if a price drop is in the offing and then get one - or at least see if there are any hardware issues that need sorting.

UK pricing available here mate: http://www.microsoft.com/surface/en-gb/pre-order

 

EDIT: Ah I think I may understand what you meant now, only basic model pricing has been revealed.

Yeah, fixed that by adding a "No" option to the first question. :/

I don't plan on ordering a Surface 2. The Nexus 7 covers all of my tablet needs quite nicely; for everything else I have a Macbook Air.

I think it's about time I get a Pro 2 to replace my one laptop and probably Android tablet (like it on my phone, not so much on a tablet, cute but I have no need), put a bit of money aside for it.. I don't do pre-orders though.
