Yes I have broken down and bought a new Surface Pro 2, for my birthday present.
While unboxing the unit, I couldn’t help thinking, hmm Microsoft taking some hints from Apple. It professionally packed, with sleek taping and wrapping. It was heavier than I had thought it would be, several pounds more than an IPAD Mini, that I own. I turned on and it went thru the setup process asking questions and moving along. I will continue to post on this link talking about what my thoughts are for the product and how it could / might help in making your portable.
