Shiny, cap'n. I only got to use a Surface once back at my job, but I still want one really bad. Can't really justify the purchase, though.

So basically,

dude i envy you so hard :(

CPU
 
Quad-core NVIDIA Tegra 3 
2GB RAM
 
Storage
 
16GB (Technically 32GB, but the OS takes up a lot of the space. Which is fine, I can use mini-SD cards for more space if I need it, and I have a few 35GB ones [mostly for my camera/3DS but they won't be running out of space anytime soon]).
 
OS
 
Windows RT; a less-full version of Windows 8 that doesn't allow the use of third party programs (like Minecraft, or Zenwriter) and only apps in their app store are available programs. But it comes with Powerpoint, Excel, Word and has an e-reader already on it, plus Kindle, Skype and all those things. (Pro has the full Windows 8 OS on it, but I didn't need that for what I intend to use this for). 
 
Battery
 
31.5 wh (From using it as I used it, Skype calls, YT, Word, downloading documents and uploading pictures and using the camera, it lasted about 4 - 5 hours on a half charged battery). 
 
Power Supply
 
24W
 
Sensors
 
Ambient light sensor
Accelerometer
Gyroscope
Compass
 
Ports
 
Full-size USB 2.0
microSDXC card slot
Headset jack
HD video out port
Cover port
 
Cameras and A/V
 
Two 720p HD LifeCams, front- and rear-facing 
Two microphones, 
Stereo speakers
 
Wireless
 
Wi-Fi
Bluetooth 4.0
 
Display
 
10.6" ClearType HD Display
1366x768 pixels
16:9 (widescreen)
5-point multi-touch
 
Exterior
 
10.81 x 6.77 x 0.37in 
1.5lbs 
VaporMg casing
Dark Titanium color
Volume and Power buttons

but it does run a little faster than my laptop (although my laptop also boots up a lot of programs when turned on... like Steam, Curse, Skype, Spotify, etc...) and can do most of the same things. If there was a Zenwriter app for this tablet it would make me 10x happier, but Word works well enough (and Word is compatible with Zenwriter, so I can switch documents out on computers pretty easily). 
 
I'm mostly using it for writing/schoolwork/reading/digital textbooks (due to its size it's pretty easy to bring wherever, doesn't take a lot of space up on desks/tables so I can have all my notes sprawled out around it). The touch-keyboard cover is also my favorite thing. Additionally, I liked this more than the iPad devices (a friend of mine uses one, and I just dislike the feel of it personally).  
 
And in comparison, my laptop has... maybe half the battery life unplugged <.<;;;

Nice nice. Good to know I'm not the only one with a 1366x768 resolution. :P

Waaaant. Want want want. Want.

But nooooo, I have to sensible and be satisfied with my boring old, non-touch Lenovo that runs perfectly and is fantastic.

But it's not a Surface. =/

I have the same resolution, but for some reason I get four rows of tiles.

The Surface looks great even in pink, though maybe it's just on pictures. Not sure I'd like it in that colour. :P

And here I thought everyone hated Windows 8 and RT. :P Personally, I wouldn't like to use RT.

As it's my twitter account it's not going to be heavily policed by me, there will likely be rated R content on it from time to time. Kind of the same rules my tumblr blog follows. (UPDATE: Haha I forgot my account password WOOPS)
