Realistically you should not compare the iPad 2 with the Surface. The iPad 2 is now superseded by 2 newer iterations, so a comparison would be better served using the latest model.
However, I'm currently holding out for the Surface Pro edition. Would love to see how this one works. I'm using Windows 8 on a desktop and find it less then inspiring, but am hoping the OS is better suited to tablet computing. I have an iPad 3, and absolutely love the thing. But to have a solid tablet with the ability to run native windows apps is definitely an enticing prospect.
