    The title kind of says it all. In Wal-Mart you can pick up a SurfaceRT for $349 all in. Converted it's around £220.

    I have one already and I am a huge fan. However, should I pick up another for the family to use around the house. It's a little heavier than a Pad but it's bloody good at everything else.

    What do you think?

    (Oh, I already have spare power supply)

    haha, I know but it should be good to have another around the house.

    Well, unless you don't have access to your own one when you want because someone else is using it. Then, maybe.

    I would look into the T&C's regarding warranty etc before you buy.

    No. Wait for Surface 2 and then give yours to the family ...

    I know the T&C's are not as favourable but I've not encountered any warranty issues with mine or heard anything serious. They seem solid all round bar a few touch cover issues.

    But waiting for the Surface 2 with full fat 8.1 may be a better option. Thanks for your input everyone, it's greatly appreciated.
