    My prior boss was left-handed, just like many kind folks I know. The Surface RT (and perhaps the Pro, IDK) was designed for 'right-handers'. What I mean is the kickstand indentation on the left side of the RT. It's easy to pop out for us right-handers. IMO Microsoft Surface version 2 should have the same indentation on the right side, i.e. lefty-friendly. Thus this would require moving the power supply connection UP just a bit.

    But wouldn't the kickstand indication being on the left side as of now, be better for leftys? Since they can use their "main" hand to open it?
    And instead of making indications on both sides, wouldn't it be better having it on the bottom, and in the center of the kickstand? :)

    Aw, c'mon, Folks! Can we be serious?

    I was born right-handed, but due to an accident, I have had to learn to be left-handed. I am surviving quite well and life goes on.

    If this is the most serious complaint available, somebody needs to "get a life."

    Regards,
    Russ

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but left handed people generally still have the use if their right hand, correct?

    The biggest annoyance with the Surface Pro is the pen being "stored" on the right side.

    Kinda negates the purpose of the forum if you can't exchange ideas and opinions. lol

    I just want to know what is to be done for the people with no hands? Who is thinking of them when it comes to touch devices?

    But with a 10.6" screen it will be too far away to read when using your toes and too close if you use your nose!

    Bosamar --

    Well, yeah, it does, but I was just disappointed that we skipped over the "Man's Inhumanity to Man" and "Why Good Things Happen to Bad People" discussions.

    I was really looking forward to those.

    :)

    Talked to an associate in San Diego today. He said the weather there was downright vicious -- but maybe he was exaggerating since he knew I used to live there.

    Take care,
    Russ
