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.

      Hello!
       
      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?
       
      Thanks!

      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!

      Well…. I’m ruined.
       
      I went to Best Buy tonight on my ride home, cutting through the [4 letter word] snow, and made my way to the Microsoft carpet in the corner.  I was there to check out the new MS hardware.  Unfortunately, yet unsurprisingly, they did not have the Surface Book on display.  That was fine, as I was really there to check out the SP4 and its accessories.  I picked up the tethered SP4, turned it around, and said ‘meh.’   I then clicked the new SP4 keyboard in, placed my stubby little fingers upon the keys and then it began… puppies rained from the ceiling, butterflies fluttered about, and rainbows were cast throughout the store.
       
      It. Was. That. Good.
       
      I’m somehow who prefers a short key travel, so that has never been much of an issue for me on the SP3, but the SP4 keyboard has just a bit more travel that simply just feel perfect.  The depression is also sports a more satisfying firmness compared to the spongy experience on the SP3.  The new key mechanism makes a big difference, providing solid, even depression no matter where impact is made. The spacing of the keys was the real godsend.  I was able to flow without any keying errors at full rate; something I cannot accomplish on the SP3 keyboard as my robust phalanges regularly trip two keys at once. If that wasn’t enough, I placed my thumb down upon the new trackpad, made a move, and tinkled my pants a little.  The range of motion the 30% larger trackpad provides is lightyears better; I was able to actually have nearly full range of motion of my thumb without smashing into the fabric barriers, and responsiveness was more than adequate.  I played on the keyboard for about 20 minutes before even noticing the sexy assistant patiently waiting at its side.   
       
      The Pen, which I’ve come to now refer to as Electra, was a fantastic improvement as well.  The pen I was using had what I imagine is the default tip, reminiscent of the felt tip sharpie pens I’m so fond of.  The action on the glass felt X-rated, again… It. Was. That. Good. The felt tip made writing upon the glass surface not just acceptable, but enjoyable.  I’ve never been a huge fan of the plastic tip on the SP3 pen and how it feels exactly like you would expect writing on glass would feel; the lack of resistance and/or friction has always been a bit unnerving. The felt tip on the new gen pen provides the right amount of friction and resistance, and makes writing on glass as close to writing on a piece of paper as I’ve ever experienced.  The best comparison I can make is the feeling of writing with a felt tip pen on a high gloss piece of cover stock. 
      In all of my time at the store (I’m honestly surprised they didn’t ask me to leave for as long as I stood there covering the table in drool), I only found one minor hiccup.  That hiccup was that I could not get double tap and hold on the trackpad to highlight/select.  I’m not a ‘clicker’ of the trackpad, so this was a bit of a letdown.  Double tap to click works fine; it was just the select/hold function of a double tap that wasn’t working.  There wasn’t a SP3 or another SP4 near enough to allow me to try the tethered keyboard on it, so I’m unclear whether the issue is keyboard or Surface related, but, I assume that it is probably a driver issue and may have been resolved in the first batch of updates.
       
      So, as I stated at the start, I’m officially ruined.  I sit here typing this on my stupid, toy like, SP3 keyboard, mashing spongy keys (often the wrong one too), and trying to navigate using this stupid postage stamp of a track pad.  I’ve even pulled a Carol, whispering ‘Look at the Flowers’ as I retired the pen to a pocket for it to never see the light of day again (Walking Dead reference).  I’ve tasted the sweet, succulent, nectar of the SP4 accessories, and I can’t wait to have the scratch to marry them with my SP3… anyone with a SP3 should seriously consider the same.
