Trying out the Surface?
details
This is one for all you UK citizens out there.

Does anyone know where I could try out a Surface Pro 3 with the stylus? I'm umming and erring about buying one, but it all rests on the stylus UX..

I assumed there would be somewhere in London, but any places I've found just have the tablet out stand alone.

Microsoft seems dead set on killing the need for both a laptop and a tablet with their latest announcement. With the same weight, more power, and a refined design, Microsoft might just have a winner on their hands.
On the other hand, I think I speak for everyone when I express intense desire to do crosswords on my super expensive piece of high-tech machinery.
