Yeah I do have a Surface Pro 1. The student discount offer for the Surface Pro 2 just went online, so I am just went ahead and put the order in now :D Old Surface Pro's are still fetching quite a bit on eBay so it seems like now would be a good time to upgrade.
I really love my Surface Pro but it's a very unique combination of hardware. I basically feel like unless you need a tablet with a stylus, there are much better options - but there's nothing quite out there that compares atm.
I need to learn to start editing videos on Adobe Premiere (I use Final Cut Pro X) because I am vaguely considering a transition to a PC. I still really love OSX though.
Strangely thanks to things like Evernote and Dropbox, having a Mac and a PC at the same time isn't that difficult.
I personally prefer Google Drive over the other file sharing/syncing services. But it's been years since I tried Dropbox in university. What makes google drive better imo is that it's not only a file syncing service, but also google docs - which is pretty awesome.
As for selling the Surface Pro 1, yeah well, since you've already ordered the SP 2 it'd be a good idea selling it now. But yeah, I agree that in general it'd be a good time for selling it. Is the second hand value as good for the Surfaces as they are for Apple products? PC's have a crappy second hand value but since it's more a tablet I honestly don't know the second hand value of Surface producs. The most I would get for my Windows 8 tablet was about half the price.As for Apple, well, Apple people are strange, but since I now own two Apple products I suppose I should call myself a bit strange as well... and I, admittedly, am.
What do you think of Windows 8.1 btw?
I was torn between the White and Space, but I ended up going with the White. There was a several weeks/months (depending on store) waiting period for the Space Grey. With the White.. well, it's already been sent from the store so I guess I'll really get it on monday. In Sweden delivery is usually 1 day, but since it's weekend ...
