    To those of you who might be thinking I'm one of those "Negative Nellies" you've been talking about, you'll be happy to know I intended on returning the SP3... because of some of it's limitations, and frankly some bugs that just shouldn't be present in a flagship product like this....but when the time came to take it back, I couldn't bring myself to do it!

    The truth is, the device is just so darned cool and useful and flexible in so many different ways, I don't want to go back to my heavy old laptop + iPad configuration.

    With some of your help online, I've improved my battery time, and lowered my frustration over issues like throttling.

    Guess MS got a lot of things right if I couldn't bring myself to return the product :)

    As to being negative,

    I have no problem when people being negative, as long as we are talking about technology. I have problem with 1. trolls. Usually I don't have good language to them. You just can't be a gentleman to an idiot. 2. Silly arguments, like "learning curves" with Windows 8, that's pure BS. It's offensive even hearing it.

    Glad you decided to keep it, the more of us there are, the more development there will be by MS!

    Lol

    I keep finding new ways to use it. It's the first new computer tool experience I've had in years.

    Glad you're enjoying it! The 3 has been a blessing to my computer needs in productivity and consumption. The sky's the limit on a Windows!

    I can't stand to not have it by me all the time. I don't need to bring it to work since I have a desktop on my desk at work and a number of laptops at my disposal. The Surface seems to keep me energized in my job, which is keeping about a hundred desktop & laptop users running where I work. I just don't feel comfortable without my Surface by my side. Just yesterday my manager and another boss wanted to check out wifi strengths and speed at a few location around our office so I just grabbed the Surface and showed them the wifi speed & strength at a few locations. It's impressive compared to carrying a laptop around to do the same thing. Am I a little bit off or do some of you feel the same about not straying too far from your Surface.

    I even make up excuses to stop by the Microsoft store & hang out for awhile. My next trip I think I'll pick up a Surface Arc mouse because I hear it will flatten out to fit in my bag that doesn't have a lot of extra space. I even have 3 Bluetooth mice including the Wedge. When there is a better way or a better product, I find a way to do it and/or get it. I'm also a bit lazy I guess and always try to find simpler & better ways of doing things.

    If I didn't get strange looks from my management, I would have it at work daily.

    I prefer it over my desktop at work, hell I would even spring for the dock myself if they let me use it, unfortunately Corporate America has forgotten to think outside the box.
