Thursday I had an opportunity to really put the Surface through its paces as a work machine. I had a four-hour PowerPoint presentation with staff, with the tablet actually up and running for five hours. Have you had a chance to run PowerPoint on this thing yet? It's outstanding. First off, as soon as I hooked up the company's old LCD projector the Surface recognized it and adjusted the resolution accordingly --- no messing around trying to set up a video device. Furthermore, PowerPoint displays differently on the device than on the screen, giving the presenter a notes view automatically. I had my USB remote installed (no muss, no fuss) so I was able to move around the room --- everything just worked. Also, I started out with an almost full charge and at the end of the training still had a 27% battery level. This post is actually a rave about the Surface RT and the installed PowerPoint app, both were flawless. Oh, and it did get a lot of attention.... Love this thing.
