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.

The beautiful eggplant color may be the only thing that I love about the Surface 2 Type Cover. The felted track pad does not allow for smooth direction of the cursor and the flat positioning of the keyboard is not a good ergonomic fit for my wrist. It would be nice if the developers would consider adding a numerical keypad in future revisions of the Type Cover. I would hope that they would also consider a firmer structure for the backing of the Type Cover - it would be great and add to productivity to be able to place the Surface on your lap and type without feeling as is the device was going to fall. I do like that it attaches and detaches with relative ease and appreciate the
backlighting. It serves the purpose but has lots of opportunity for improved productivity and usability.

great on the Surface and after close exa

Comments about Microsoft Surface Type Cover 2, Purple:

We had bought Mom the Surface for Mothers' Day... she liked it ok... wasn't the easiest thing for her to get used to. She has had an iPhone 4s for a while and that took some getting used to as well. But now we threw a new "OS" at her ... she was getting a bit frustrated. It was good because you could plug in a (wireless) mouse - that was quite a relief. But she has issues with typing on a touch surface. She types in general with her finger nails. This was a Christmas gift and just what the doctor ordered! The easy snap on case is a piece of cake... the touch pad mouse works great and she can finally type like a grown-up! And a great sale price!!!!

        Comments about Microsoft Surface Type Cover 2, Purple:

        I bought this for my Surface Pro 2. I like how the keyboard is drawn to the tablet by magic magnets. I have had a few times where it seems "glichy" and didn't connect properly, so I just pulled it apart and reconnected which worked fine. The whole cover, including the mouse pad, has a felt-like feeling so it takes a bit to get used to the feel of it. The keyboard does light up, so that is helpful at night. The size of the keyboard is not too bad for a tablet size. My one complaint is that the keyboard is not stiff or sturdy enough on it's own. I fear I may bend it accidentally and break it. Overall, it does it's job.

        Surface keyboard - Great / Takes time

        Comments about Microsoft Surface Type Cover 2, Purple:

        It took a while to make it work on first generation surface. Had to do back up then rebuild surface then after that had to go through each update. Do it got a bit time consuming. The Microsoft store said to wait to plug in this new keyboard until after all the updates where processed through the surface before you attach the new keyboard. That didnt work. I read on Internet to plug new keyboard in before you do all updates. So backed it up. Erased everything. Reloaded as if new. Plugged keyboard in. Then went through updates one by one.
