I got two Surfaces for my children. My wife loves Surface...

For those who never used Surface - it does everything a device of that type should...

'It just works!!!'

I can do office work on it too with no problems whatsoever (I am on the move a lot and am using an ultrabook at the moment).

I played with friend's ipad yesterday and I prefer Surface! App selection is adequate.

Given time, RT platform will become better as will selection of software...

There will always be people who will provide negative comments about anything - as far as I am concerned, my children are extremely happy as is my wife and our Surfaces have done everything we have asked of them thus far... (and I do stretch the bondaries at times)...
