I'm with you DarthBurrito...trade-ins for the early adopters means you're not an early adopter. This is a risk that comes with the territory in tech.
I haven't read through all of the announced specs yet for the Surface 2, but so far one minor disappointment for me is the absence of a digitizer pen for the RT model. Yea, I know that Pro has had it from day one, but I think that MS also has to have feature parity as well as feature leap frog when compared to Android and iOS in the tablet space...this is the penalty for being late to the updated Tablet Games. (They may have "invented/introduced" a workable tablet OS in 2004/2005, but they didn't push hard enough at the time and continue to innovate and their OEMs screwed them (IMO)).
Does anyone know if the codec pack has been updated to work with the newer Nikon camera's in RAW format. Been asking MS for 8 months and get the brush off. Perfect for viewing images in the field but wont support new cameras. Hope they fix it on Surface 2, not holding my breath.
