As usual, your mileage may vary and blah blah blah, but I wanted to share my thoughts after 1 month of ownership. See my previous post for my first week with the device. New findings to follow: Pluses? 1. This thing runs like a beast. it handles everything I throw at it as long as I use the native screen (more on that below). 2. I have had multiple spreadsheets open on two monitors and used the native screen to play movies. It is that powerful. 3. I have setup all of the networking options I need for work and I can report that as expected all VPN and corporate e-mail stuff just works. 4. My laptop has not been used in more than 3 weeks, except to retrieve a file or two I forgot to backup to Sky Drive. Minuses/Annoyances? 1. I have had some issues with powering up after standby. Others have reported this as well, but I cannot seem to make it occur every time so I have no idea as to what might be either the the cause or solution. 2. USB Docking Station (Anker USB 3.0 Dual Display (DVI/HDMI) Docking Station, Audio, Gigabit Ethernet, and 6 USB ports for Windows) can be a bit flaky. Sometimes if I shut down and restart the external monitors don't come back on and I have to unplug and replug. Suspect this and #1 may be related- i.e. standby issues. 3. Gaming through USB Docking Station on Monitor- not good. Seems to be an issue trying to play even non-intense games like Tanki Online. Lag and FPS issues. -If I directly connect the HDMI cable to the Surface Pro and use one external monitor, I can play games fine 5. Minecraft- not sure what the issue is but in Minecraft using a USB mouse just won't work. Instead of fluid control, the POV keeps locking back to looking straight up. May be a conflict between USB Mouse and Touchscreen/Touchpad. 6. Touchpad on Type2 Keyboard= rubbish. I read that a driver update was planned for this and that it would fix this so I am hopeful. However as it is i find the responsiveness to be way too slow and the acceleration of the cursor seems locked on fixed. Since I have the USB dock and a wireless mouse i have not dug into the settings to see if there are any that might help.
