Surface…

Since getting my iPad a couple years ago I’ve found I’ve used my laptop less and less even though the iPad was never bought or intended for work use it was what I tend to take with me to clients’ and then if I needed something I’d remote in to my desktop at home…
The past few months I’ve been wanting to limit my work us of the iPad and actually get something meant more for work and so after much deliberation, I ordered a Surface Pro 2 on Monday from Microsoft and it arrived yesterday afternoon… I was quite shocked it came the day after I ordered it as I had the free 3-7 day shipping.

I have managed to load it with Photoshop, Dreamweaver, Illustrator and InDesign from Creative Cloud but really haven’t had time to work with it much.

First impressions… I don’t like the kick stand. I find it annoying and I miss the folder smart cover my iPad has… the pen is interesting… sort of like one of the earlier Wacom essentials versions… definitely not the weight/feel of a Wacom. I did read that Wacom has a Feel IT driver that makes the surface pen more Wacom like… haven’t tried it out yet but will and post results…

My biggest complaint at the moment is why can google and apple sync bookmarks/favorites across devices but Microsoft can’t unless all devices are Windows 8 using windows live login??? Seems bizarre… Loading iCloud to the surface pro so Apple can do Microsoft’s job for them and sync my favorites…
