It's a great tablet.
I purchased a 2520 on the first day it was available at AT&T and I love it.  It has a great form factor and terrific battery life.  There is a bug where it occasionally won't wake from sleep mode and I need to do a soft reset, but it hasn't happen frequently enough to be a real problem.  The LTE radio is what makes this tablet a gem amongst other Windows tablets.  Most of this time I have Wi-Fi available, but there are plenty of times that having LTE is really convenient.   The fact that it uses Windows RT isn't a show stopper.  I never faulted the IPad for not having x86 support, I not going to fault Windows RT either.  The app store does have less options, but in reality, it has all the tools that I need, Office, Citrx, Remote Desktop, and a bunch of great games to keep my two year old busy.  I like the Xbox service integration and have already rented movies and put them up on my plasma via the mini HDMI on the 2520.  In my opinion, the 2520 is a great tablet for a great price.
