MS Surfaces At University Of Sydney Common Room

University common rooms can be dreary places, with desks, withered pamphlets and an always-empty bar fridge. The newly-launched TechLounge at the University of Sydney is a little flashier: it has a Microsoft Surface, Xbox consoles complete with Kinect, and a bunch of sample hardware to tease students about what they’ll be able to buy when they finally get a job.

As you might guess from that product list, the lounge has been sponsored by Microsoft. The facility officially opened today. How does it compare with what you’re seeing (or saw) at university? And if you’re a University of Sydney student, is it actually a useful addition to campus life?
