I would let the rest of the staff play with the Surface so they can buy their own and we would all be happy!

You cant handle knowing the things I would do for a Microsoft Surface,
so.... I would just keep quiet about the disturbing lengths I would go to, and hope for a Copy of Microsoft Office Professional 2010!!
(....because you can't handle the truth!)

I'd try to use the Surface Tablet for the things that David Letterman used an iPad for on his show when it first came out.

I would donate my old Athlon XP pc to a class with a subject "Why a workshop with canaries is a bad place for an overclocked PC with no dust filters."

Write this comment for it. . If I'd win, it would just sit on my dresser collecting dust, because I don't have a network fast enough to stream HD content to it.

The most honest comment here.

I would make a thread about how much the "make the jump" bit on all Brad Sams news articles makes me want to rip the head of a kitten(and I love animals).

I'd take a bat to apple hipsters and android fanbois and crack their knee caps and then place their crappy apple and android devices in front of them and slowly start by scratching the screens with nails and finally smashing it to little bits. All while enjoying the agony on their faces and laughing in a sinister evil laugh. Now thats love !

Meh - I already have Office Professional Plus 2010.

But, I'd give this away to my parents or my brother. For that, I would ...... hmm ...... deactivate my 2nd FB account for idiotic deaf people.

I would also agree to pay double the iPad price for the Pro version, since it's still full Windows version which is a lot more important than a trimmed down dummy OS like IOS or WinRT

Well Surface's hardware is goood and compared to iPad it's less dumbed down even if less attractive, so I will definitely rule out the iPad. Entry for today.

When you guys actually give away a Microsoft Surface, let me know. In the meantime, I already have Office, but thanks anyway.

All I need is a hand to hold it plus an extra index finger to swipe, right? I'd chop off my left pinky finger, (I'm a righty, have mercy).

enter a apple store with the surface, start playing with it and ask the employees if their tablets can do this and this and this and this

I'd give up my Windows Desktop, MacBook Pro 17, iPad 2 and MacBook Air 11" and make Windows Surface my main operating system.

For a surface I'd do whatever is the best thing any one else here has said... but then i'd do it better

For a copy of Office 2010 i wouldn't do anything. he.

Nothing. Microsoft will have to give it to me. I already own a perfectly serviceable laptop and desktop; which fulfill my needs and wants.

I would be willing to be a walking commercial with all possible signs and logos of Surface and introduce and comment any details about it to every interested person on the street. 24/7, and with a genuine smile!

I'd trade in my HP TouchPad - OK it's not the most supported device out there, but once I installed the CyanogenMod I'm able to run both WebOS and Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) on it to make it significantly more useful.

I probably would solicit NeoWin to create a dedicated Microsoft Surface blog dedicated to all things Surface, with tips and tricks how to use and get the most out of the surface. How to setup a Surface, to upgrade one, how to keep it clean. Also, recommendations, which Surface is right for you. Why the Surface is better than the iPad and Android based devices.

I'd streak through George Square, Glasgow City with the front half of my body painted in the new Windows 8 logo and the back painted in the Office 2010 logo

I would say "thank you very much" and proceed to scoff at all my looser friends touting android and fruit based devices.

"You should note, we are not giving away a Microsoft Surface, we are giving away a Copy of Microsoft Office Professional 2010."

Now calculate the percentage of users who may have actually read the article.

I would queue up in front of the Microsoft Store at Valley Fair mall and ignore all the people queuing up for iDeviceOfTheWeek at the Apple store across the hall.

I'd buy and iPad and shoot it to pieces, it's always looked so cool on Youtube when they do it and plus if it'd get me a Microsoft Surface I could justify buying an iPad to shoot.

Nothing; I plan to buy another Convertible Tablet with an i7 Intel processor and 8GB of RAM.
Besides I would not enroll in FB even for a copy of Office 2013.
Everything but FB.........

I will change My Wife's MacBook Pro & get her another surface ...(she will probably kill me after that..)

I would uninstall Chrome and Firefox from all 17 of my machines and become an ardent spokesperson for Internet Explorer...AND I would stop sending Bill Gates letters every other month begging him for money.

Mentioned this to the Mrs, then told her about the movie indecent proposal and its potential.
She didn't like the idea and the couch looks mighty comfy.

I'd recommend the persons who are responing whom are thinking they can win a surface, to read again....

ya uhh wow !
some people have some harshly poor comprehension skills around here lol

the power and reliability of a fully functional tablet pc would be amazing for many different things especially remote user support rather than hefting around my Latitude E5520 when i go out to other locations.

This contest are for UK resident only or open to worldwide? Anyway, I'd trade all my Microsoft software collections (three big shelf of that) for one Microsoft Surface Pro!

I would stack all 6 of my iPads in a row and roll over them with a steamroller. Table sized sacrifice for a table sized Tablet.

MS Surface isn't Surface (gawd that was such a bad naming choice) this is the small tablet, not the big table

He must be living under a rock if he doesn't know what Surface is.

They clearly didn't think it through, but then again it could be a range of devices in the end like Galaxy, Nexus etc

Nah the original Surface has been renamed to PixelSense.
