Microsoft holding midnight events for the new Surface tablets at 10 retail locations
Microsoft has announced that it'll be holding midnight events for the launch of the Surface 2 and the Surface 2 Pro at 10 of its stores in 10 different states on October 21.

Starting at 10p.m. local, the stores in questions will be holding what the company is calling the 'Surface Challenge', an unspecified series of “fun, interactive and sometimes physical games”. Winners will be flown to Orlando, Florida the very next for the privilege of being audience to rapper Pitbull's performance at the opening of a local fashion store.

The list of the 10 retail locations includes:


• Bellevue Square Mall
• Westfield San Francisco Centre
• Scottsdale Fashion Square
• Dadeland Mall (Miami)
• Lennox Square Mall (Atlanta)
• The Shops at Prudential Center (Boston)
• The Westchester (White Plains, N.Y.)
• The Domain (Austin, Texas)
• The Fashion Centre at Pentagon City (Arlington, Va.)
• Oakbrook Center Mall (Oak Brook, Ill.)

In addition, more than 70 other Microsoft stores will be holding events and giving out freebies later this month. These will also be the place that the software giants deems most appropriate for you to try out (and purchase, of course) “the most productive tablet on the planet”. In case you're contemplating buying one of the two new Surface tablets, it's probably as good a time as any to check our coverage of the Surface 2 and the Surface 2 Pro.

You must be kidding! Iran has to pay Microsoft those Windows licenses that were sold for $1 and then we'll talk :)

A lot of people held off buying the original Surface Pro because they wanted the hardware and software to get better and the Intel haswell i5 CPU plus other tweaks have improved it's battry life. The New Surface 2 has a better OS and is slimmer.and lighter and is silver colored. and has a 1080p display it not a bad product at all and is the best bag for the buck business ready
tablet on the market because it comes preloaded with MS home /Student and MS "outlook" is now part of it's office suite. buy use it for fun and use your old desktop to run your old mouse and keyboard PC desktop programs. that'ill work.

A lot of retailers have stopped selling chromebooks altogether, so I guess the Surface products can't be that bad.
