Today's post is sponsored by Microsoft Retail Stores!

I recently had a blast at a Chicago Microsoft Store learning about the fabulous products Microsoft has for graduates and dads for Father's Day fun.  


The Microsoft Store has employees that are knowledgeable in everything Microsoft.  Let them know what your specific needs are and they will steer you toward the right product that is just right for you.  I was extremely impressed with Ellie from a Chicago store, I ended up purchasing the perfect mobile smart phones for one of my teens.  Absolutely brilliant!

The Xbox One is in a league of it's own.  No need for remotes when using a Kinect for Xbox One - more precise, intuitive and all-together amazing - automatically signs in when you enter the room.


The Surface and Surface Pro 2 are outstanding options for a combined computer / tablet.  Absolutely everything you need in one lightweight super tablet!

The Surface Pro 2 is the ultimate tablet -  preloaded with Office - including Outlook, Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and One Note and runs Windows RT 8.1 with Pen for drawings and a personal touch on the touch screen.  Add a keyboard easily for the perfect combination of both worlds!  Please note the keyboard is magnetic and backlit and super easy to attach - no bluetooth involved.

The Docking Station for the Surface and Surface Pro 2 is a must-have accessory for the Surface.  It has the ability to turn your Surface into a desktop!    The Docking Station for Surface Pro gives you everything you need to get work done - a display port, an audio input/output jack, an Ethernet port, as well as a high-speed USB 3.0 and three USB 2.0 ports.

What is on MY list after visiting my local Microsoft Store?  The Surface Pro 2 Bundle - Including a Surface, Type Cover 2 or Touch Cover, sleeve, $25 app card, and Microsoft Complete.

And the Xbox One Bundle - it comes with the Xbox One, Kinect, Titanfall game download, and a month of Xbox Live Gold.   The Xbox One plays Blu-Rays, DVDs and stream Netflix through your TV.

I love to use my husband's surface! It would have been nice to go to their store to get than the box store we went to and they knew nothing about it.

I didn't know much about them. The employee who helped us was very knowledgeable. I can't believe how much they do and come loaded with Office. So nice instead of having to buy and load separately! Really loved it!
