I know the surface gets a bad rep but as an office tool it is spectacular and although not "designed for gaming" with the simple addition of the splashtop app and a decent home based PC to act as a server and do the grunt work of the processing you can comfortably stream your entire PC to the surface and play pretty much anything with little to no lag (in my remote tests less than 0.3-0.5 seconds) and with a few minor tweaks makes playing almost every game in my steam library possible.
I should say that with MMORPG's the streaming system makes gaming on this thing frankly fantastic and well worth the now significantly reduced price.
I've already buy this tablet, i though it would be perfect tablet for me. But i disappointed with the tablet it self cannot read the exe.file and windows 10 upgrade. I hope the incoming Surface Phone flagship would be my perfect fit for my taste...

jonlev, 14 Feb 2014trueThat's a brief and great view point and has really helped me narrowing down my choice between Surface 2 & RT. Glad to know it's beneficial for Students and mostly those who have to read lots of research journals. Even I'm planning for getting in PhD where most of your time gets in gathering more details from research papers and working on MS word/PowerPoint presentations.
Above 10hrs screen on time is rather impressive. Well to entertain I suppose it does support media files over greater range. What would I miss..well to be honest I'm done with iPad and nexus 7...these big names are good for show for couple of years and after that they just pile up in corner. With the cut in price, both RT and Surface 2 seems great.
Let me know about it. Looking forward to hear, if possible mail me @ email@example.com would be grateful.
ddl, 27 Jan 20141. True. but its a tablet not a pc. using windows store apps is not so hard.
2.I dont known ... moreI find that's quite a well judged opinion about Surface RT. Personally I own both nexus 7 II and iPad Retina, but still miss that laptop like interface where one has more freedom to use that extra screen space. Mostly I like to browse stuffs,ebook reading and almost not much into gaming, have had enough of that during college days. As I find you seem quite satisfied using this Surface RT..let me know how would that fit in for like using it for 3-4 years down the line with windows 8.1,taking into fact that I have no issues with the shortcomings of this not being a fully functional laptop.
I'm more than fine with the laptop like interface (above that its sturdy ergonomic design)with more than great battery life as compared to Nexus 7's 6-7hrs screen on time on KitKat. Added to that a USB port for general media transfer and playing HD videos.
What's the experience if I keep using it for like reading ebooks for a large part as well fiddling with MS office n maximum browsing on IE? How's the overall performance of this machine?
Quite in a fix choosing between Surface RT and advanced version of RT,Surface 2. RT comes in great offer on eBay @ £300 for 64gb..compared to £400 for Surface 2.
Let me know about it mate. Would be grateful if you could mail me if that's not an issue. Mail id- firstname.lastname@example.org
Microsoft need to do new highnest 14 inches thinner tablet with this basic specs:
1.Display.- 14 inch QHD - IGZO Led Backlight (~300 ppi pixel density)
2.Memory.- 4 GB RAM
3.Chipset.- Tegra K1 or MediaTek MT6795 64-bit
4.Camera.- 2 MP on both sides
I have had major difficulties working with Microsoft Surface. But the biggest issue is its often unresponsive whether using the touch function, the keyboard or a mouse.
When using other applications - I've had major difficulties - ie, salesforce.com, WSJ - application and there are others.
The battery lasts a long time, but that doesn't help when you're trying to work on the internet or even on Excel documents.
It is not a substitute for a laptop at least not yet. I would never buy one again, unless you think that reading off the surface is a viable investment.
people who dealing wiz ios and android for a long time dont accept this product :)
may b i was cruel in this judgement
may b the surface rt suitable for other kind of people but not me
Good One Tab.... but Not install outside Software ..also Win 8 RT not more supportable
My RT is the best combination of hardware and software that I have owned. I did computer support and software development for over 30 years, and I love this RT. It is at least 10 times better than the ipad2 that it replaced due to: multiple concurrent windows displayed, choice of keyboards including standard PC, excellent sync to web mail and data, all setting available everywhere at your fingertips.
Thank you Microsoft.
Easy bring to anywhere.
But limited for window RT.
No Microsoft Publisher. hard to doing my job.
Game are not important for me.
Store was limited. But enough for me.
Keyboard beautiful but not for lifelong. (the cheapest one)
No digital pen.
Just only 1.2MP.
Battery really can use for long time.
Video format limited.
Depends on your demands.
Yes , you can use your android, windows phone or iPhone as hotspot
Yes, the USB port works with 3G modem, printer, and any pen drive
Yes, there is an micro sd slot
Yes, with 8.1, there is les lag than any android tablet - browsing is awesome, in some sites, ecen flash works
Yes, ppi is low, but is not ugly, is the same as your notebook or lower than fullhd monitor
No, there are no windows phone apps, yet
No, there are no plenty of apps, but the worse are games. Games runs bad, or not satisfacting. The best way to game on original surface RT is through console emulator (master system, mega drive, snes, nes, gba - there is no psx or n64) .
There are facebook and flipboard apps, and some image editors
