Whoever said no news is good news was a liar, because this news is good (and about two weeks late). My previous blog post about how awesome surface pro is for gaming won me a free Halo Spartan Assault Surface Pro.
My better half told me that having a party to honor myself for this prestigious award would be over the top and narcissistic, so I took her advice and had her make a video of me opening it in the kitchen.
It’s basically a surface pro with some halo decals on it, which is pretty cool and it was free so rock on. I was expecting it to come with it’s own A.I., but that might not be a feature until Surface Pro 3. I’m excited to get the 8.1 upgrade on this bad boy later this month.
Even more exciting was the announcement of the Surface 2 and Surface Pro 2. It sounds like the biggest boon will be the increase in the battery life which I’d say is the sole weakness of the original. It also sports the intel 4400 graphics chip so it may get a little bit more performance when it comes to gaming. I’m sure I’ll end up with one at some point, if Microsoft offers a reasonable trade in, I’ll get it day one.
There is a contest to win a Surface Pro 2. Could I go two for two? That might be a bit gready, but if you’re interested check it out at the Surface Remix Project.
