I love the tablet, but had to get an Ipad so I could facetime with my granddaughter !
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!
Hello Surface Geeks. I listen to your podcast and you asked for people to post what they have from a Windows 8 perspective. Let me first preface this that I am a Microsoft employee. I have been with the company for 8 years and may be a little partial if you ask me about things. I can't give details about futures of Microsoft, but I can definately give you details about experiences and what I see. Here is the list of my current Windows 8 machines:
Surface Pro 128 GB - Primary Work machine (Type Cover) w/ Plugable USB 3.0 Docking station Surface RT 64 GB (2) 32 (2) - Primary Content Consumption Device w/ 64 GB SD and Type Cover Asus ZenBook Prime Touch UX31A - Primary Personal Laptop used for DJing and Lighting Design Samsung DP500A2D-A02UB All-In-One with Touch screen Gateway 23" All-In-One with Touch screen Dell XPS Workstation w/ Dual 22" screens one being a Dell Touchscreen Monitor Samsung Series 9 First Gen Laptop Samsung Series 7 Slate w/ docking station Gateway DX4840-11e Desktop Fujitsu Stylistic Q550 Slate w/ docking station Lenovo W510 Laptop - Old Work Laptop My current phone is a Nokia Lumia 920, however I have had the following phones as well:
Samsung Focus Samsung Focus S Nokia Lumia 900 HTC 8X Other items that might be of interest:

Oh, and for those that are not Microsoft people. I do keep a stock of other items that I leverage to understand the the competitor solutions such as:
MacBook Pro w/ dual SSD drives 13" non-retina iPad v1 iPod 4th Gen Nexus 7 32 GB Asus Transformer 16 GB
Ok, enough about the hardware... Questions?
I have been having lots of issues with my Surface 2, 90% of the time I reboot or boot my surface it requests my bitlocker key. Is anyone else having this issue? Did anyone manage to fix it?
I got my Surface RT a few weeks after release. Had my husband take one home to Sweden from New York. One thing I still have not got to work well is how to use the SD card in a good way. For example, how do I get media like music and video to show up in the metro/modern interface apps. As Of now I have to open up one song at a time from the file menu and not a playlist or album.
