|I'll take 2, please.|
Didn't know it did voice stuff so well.
Ordered mine today. £30 off from Tesco. Picking it up tomorrow but after making sure everything works, the wife is hiding it till Christmas.|
It's supposed to be our joint Christmas present, so she wants it to feel special apparently.
Which would be fine, if I was buying an Xbox.
|Maybe the surprise will be when you open iy on Christmas Day and she's swapped it for an ipad hehe|
|Unlikely as she's almost as irritated by Apple products as me|
|Surface Pro 2 looks quite desirable. Form factor and battery looking decent.|

@Widge we've been using a Surface 2 (not the Pro) since the weekend. I'm not sure if the "keep it till Christmas" thing has totally fallen by the wayside (teehee) but we definitely wanted to boot it up and make sure the thing worked.|
I really liked it. Having not used Win 8 before, there is a little learning curve, but that's the same with any new OS (and using Macs all the time at work would have incurred a bit of a speed bump anyway).
But it's very quick, the screen is brilliant, and it's much simpler than whipping out a cumbersome laptop, but more useful than a phone. It's become my wife's default device now. Also having Office in there is simply brilliant, a very, very useful addition.
It feels slightly heavier than an iPad, and the 16x9 aspect makes it slightly more awkward to hold, but these are minor quibbles. It functions much more like a PC, even with the cut-down RT OS.
Just deciding what games to buy! Become somewhat addicted to Jetpack Joyride, which is brilliant for a free title.

That Halo game is on sale at the moment, I think.|
The Surface Pro 2 is piquing my interest at the moment. A few good reviews, but the Intel HD4400 graphics really undermines everything else about it for me.
