A little while ago I won a lucky draw at a ‘Binarytree’ presentation.
Yesterday FedEx called me and on my way out of the office there was a FedEx delivery guy at my reception.
This long awaited piece of pure Microsoft Joy had finally found it’s way into my grubby paws 🙂
Having worked with the Samsung series 7 slate since January 2012 I was definitely looking forward to giving this item a go.
So, first some pictures:
Firstly, the box prior to opening:
Once opened, the surface is revealed:
Mind the reflection of my Nokia Lumia 920 whilst taking the first power on picture:
Below comparison between Samsung series 7 slate and the surface pro, slightly thicker, but much smaller:
Right now I am busy transferring data and synchronizing my skydrive folders, however this post was written on the new Surface Pro.
I find the onscreen keyboard, which would include the touchscreen, to be a lot better, I had much fewer spelling mistakes and retypes on this post than during my normal working day on the Samsung device.
Worth a mention, there was no ‘type keyboard’ included in this package, sadly.
I got the shock of my life at Wantitall trying to smuggle these for roughly R2700 odd, however thanks to a trusted source I was led to Esquire, who currently sells the RT surface devices in SA and managed to find a keyboard for the surface for much less.. 😃
