My wife just signed for mine. I cant wait to get home from this trip. Looking at the FedEx tracking, this was in China yesterday! China-Alaska-Memphis-Minneapolis-my house in two days!

Finally got my shipping notice for the Surface this morning. It is being shipped by UPS as well. Kind of annoying that UPS has barely any info on their website, I don't get an expected delivery date or anything at all.

Well, UPS finally gave me some more info. Earlier today their website said the Type Cover would arrive by end of day tomorrow, but no update on the other 2 tracking numbers I had (Surface and HD Video cable, looks like I am getting 3 separate shipments). Just checked again and now the Surface is scheduled for delivery by end of day tomorrow as well. Pretty happy here.

Well, I haven't received any shipping notice, my account says "order in process", and the pending charge dropped off my account without being applied. But Fedex says it's about 20 miles away.

Mine came while I was at the dentist this morning. Been playing around with it for about 30 minutes. The HD Video adapter didn't show up, but not too worried about that yet. Interestingly, just got an email from Microsoft saying that because I am in Canada, and due to delays, they are giving me a $50 credit in the Microsoft store.

Got mine this morning around 9:00 (and the shipping email from Microsoft about an hour before that). Too cool. The FedEx guy said that nobody was home for the last one he delivered and they'd have to wait until Monday. I'm glad I took a work-from-home day to wait for the delivery.


I might not have pre-ordered if I'd known about the free $99 xBox Music account given away at our local store. But I heard it was a long wait from a friend who went down, the employees were giving each customer a private ten minute demo. So, the pre-order worked out pretty good after all.

      I have a Surface RT (32 GB) and it only has 1.69 GB of space left on the HD. The thing is that I have almost nothing on it (just a few apps that I check and do NOT take a lot of space, and small files), so I don't know what is taking so much space. Does anyone knows where is all that memory going? I have not being able to find it (I have checked the size of the apps, delete the trash can, delete the internet history/cookies)...
      Also, I want to upgrade to Windows 8.1. These are the two ways that I have think of doing it, but I will like your opinion on which option is better (or if there is a better way):
      Plan 1: take the tablet to its original status (in PC settings > General > Remove everything and reinstall Windows), move the recovery files to a thumb drive (http://www.surfacegeeks.net/forums/index.php?/topic/192-surface-rt-how-to-free-up-4-gigabytes-of-storage-space-on-your-rt/), and do all updates to take it to Windows 8.1
      Plan 2: free some space by moving the recovery files to a thumb drive, make the upgrade to Windows 8.1, run a cleanup disk and defragment the drive
      Making a backup of the files in the tablet is easy b/c there is not much in it, but my main concerns for the process are: I am going to loose microsoft office? is it going to ask me for any key/license number (if I ever had one, I don't know where it is)? anything else that I am missing?

      Hello everybody!
      I have a Surface Pro 4 i7 with 512GB which was very expensive! After a couple of months I have noticed that sometimes when I put it to sleep it won't wake up and I have to reset the whole thing. I love the device and use it a lot, and I twitted Microsoft and they contacted me and say that I have to replace it... I am OK with that but I live in UK and the service is from USA, they say they do not have my device and have to send me a refurbished one, on the other hand I can see the UK store has my model. 
      My question is, what do you guys think of refurbished devices? Does it affect the performance? I am not too annoyed about the issue, I just do not put it to sleep anymore, but on the other hand it is annoying that a new and expensive item does not work properly. What would you guys do? I mostly use my Surface to draw with Illustrator and Photoshop... 
      I would appreciate any short of advice and help!
      Thank you very much!

      Looks like the first reviews are starting to pop up. Guess the embargo is over.
      Engadget has a generally positive review.
      Ars Technica's review runs 6 pages so it's some night time reading for me.

      Hey guys,
      Will/Can Nokia become a problem for WP? Can they be what Samsung is to Android?  I appreciate what Nokia is doing and understand Windows Phone is not as open as Android.  I see the exclusive deals that Nokia not Microsoft Store is making and it has me thinking about the future of WP.
      I would like to see what Microsoft does?
      Release a surface phone?
      Offer a Pure Windows experience without the bloat like they do with PCs? (Android is moving in that direction with the HTC One and Samsung GS4 stock offerings)
