I got this device after my previous laptop died halfway through my 2L year. It's been great so far for getting work done, web-surfing, news-hounding, socializing, and other activities in gerund form.
I'm a larger guy, so the form factor issues many people have raised aren't much of an issue for me; one-handed portrait mode reading isn't much of a problem.
That said, there are a handful of great apps in the MS Store, and a huge steaming pile of nonsensical "apps" padding the numbers. The App store from Apple is the same, except there are so many useful apps that I never had reason to complain about the "chaff" as it were. MS should really attempt to sweeten the pot for developers.
Finally, I'm quite computer savvy and, thus, navigating through the Surface 2 features wasn't much of an issue. However, I imagine for a non-"poweruser" the learning curve could be a bit steep. There isn't any documentation included with the Surface 2 (go trees!) perhaps MS should create a section of their site with tutorial videos. If this already exists, then it says something about marketing that a person who has already owned the product for nearly a month is unaware of it.
As a device aiming to usurp your laptop and your tablet, the Surface 2 almost succeeds. After several weeks using the tablet I found myself choosing the Surface 2 over my old Acer Timeline laptop for much of my screen time.
The pros are many, including good performance and battery life, and a solid but stylish design. However, the machine is dragged down from greatness by some niggling cons.
Outside the office the tablet succeeds in many important ways. Browsing the web is pretty much a cinch: Internet Explorer sits smack in the middle of the Window 8 Start screen and loads just about instantly. Navigating web pages feels fast and responsive and, coming from Chrome and being unfamiliar with IE, I found it pretty straightforward to switch between tabs, bring up frequently visited sites and other bread-and-butter browsing tasks. Videos look vibrant and crisp on the 10.6-inch, 1,920-by-1,080 screen, while the stereo speakers are loud enough to be audible in moderately noisy environments without distorting at high volume. Front and rear video cameras make the Surface 2 a good choice for video calls and shooting the occasional video or photo. The screen's clarity also made the tablet a decent choice for reading lengthy documents although for books I imagine the matte display of an e-reader would be preferable.

Really good keyboard, loved that it actually clicked so you knew what you were typing. Unfortunately after about 4 days (no heavy usage) the space bar started getting stuck and you had to dig it out or keep clicking it until it came back of again. Also the backspace key wouldn't work every time, you had to click it harder than the rest of the keys.

        Comments about Microsoft Surface Type Cover 2, Purple:

        Awesome keyboard for my surface. Love the backlit feature and the purple color is perfect. This does everything and more that I could have imagined in addition to protecting the screen when traveling or not in use, which is rare. Being a bit old fashioned I still want to use a real keyboard and this is just perfect.

        This keyboard attaches to the Surface and makes it work pretty much like a laptop.

        Comments about Microsoft Surface Type Cover 2, Purple:

        The keyboard provides great protection for the tablet screen as well as keyboard function. The purple adds some color contrast to the black back of the tablet. The keys are super easy to use and the size makes it easy to use both hands for typing. The scroll box is a little difficult to get used to but after using it awhile I got the hang of it.

        Comments about Microsoft Surface Type Cover 2, Purple:

        As used to my laptop keyboard as I am, and as clumsy as I am with my iPhone keyboard, I was delighted to find that Microsoft has invented this great addition to the Surface 2!

        It serves as a protective cover AND as a back-lit keyboard, thus putting me in business for whatever I need to do whenever I need to do it!

        The purple is just fun...

        It was well worth the extra to buy this companion to my Surface 2!
