iFixit did a teardown of the Surface if you wanted to see what was inside

Samsung Odyssey is the unknown at this point. Praying for goodness.

So... You make a choice yet? Very Happy

who here has Windows 8 (for desktops)? I'm loving it so far.

Only issue i'm having is that I can't seem to find advanced printing options like fast draft printing. All menus and options seem really simply and bare... maybe TOO simple.

Almost bought the Surface but ended up going with the Asus Transformer T700.

What made you go that route? How are you liking it?

Not yet. I'm probably going to wait a bit. A wp8 will hold me over.

Still shipping, I should have it by Friday. And I just really like what Asus is doing lately. Their product has really improved and it's better than the IPad3 in several categories (weight/thickness/GB/etc).

Typing on a surface right now. I can give impressions later if you want. So far the only glitch I've had is setting up my outlook exchange, but I suspect that is due to my lack of knowledge. Everything else has worked flawlessly. Really happy with it at this point.

Ok, I figured out outlook. I needed to click on imap... whatever that is.

So, right now I would give it a 8/10. I really like just about everything, the only real complaint is the learning curve right now. Its surprising how different this is from w7 & wp7.

Of course, I've only been using it for a couple hours, so that is to be expected.

Well, as you know, I have a Windows phone right now and let's just say I'm not in love with it. That's why I somewhat avoided the Surface this time around.

Question

I thought you liked it? Whats your beef with the phone? Which one are you using?


I will be interested in your Android opinions if you dont like WP7.. Laughing


I will post a surface review sometime in the next few days. I will likely return the Surface for the Lenovo Lynx... but it might be hard. My wife and kids have been playing with it every chance they get. They love it; but at the end of the day, I am buying it for work purposes and the other one is more in line with what I need (Faster processor, bigger HD, Full Windows, 16 hours battery life, etc).

PS - Dont let the return be an indication of the device though - I really like it, its just doesnt fully meet my needs. For example, because its RT, I cant install a couple of applications we use in my office.

There are certain things I really like about it, but it's really glitchy sometimes. For example, I'll press on one of the tiles and the screen will just freeze for several seconds. Or when I go into pictures the pictures won't actually load. On top of that, the apps are terrible.

I know that the apps are also going to be pretty bad with Android for the most part, but I don't play games much anyways.
