I've had my surface for a several weeks now and love it for the most part. I love that there is a desktop for organizing files, MS office, the gestures, multi-tasking, on screen keyboard, compatibility with my computers/printers ... and well, everything but these terrible issues. 1. Trackpad on the Type Cover The trackpad on the Type cover is pretty much useless for me. Never right clicks, always moving the cursor when trying to click, just pointless. It's a good thing I can touch the screen instead. 2. Screen brightness flicker even with auto adjust off. I've read on this forum that it's a known issue, doesn't ruin it for me, I just hope there's a fix because it's subtlety becomes annoying after a while. 3. Confusing work around for Music/Video/Picture Apps and microSD integration I wish it was easier to incorporate the MicroSD card into these apps without this silly work around I found on this forum. 4. Clunkiness of productivity and using Skype I wasn't expecting my Surface to have the fluidity of the iPad from what I've read, but the clunkiness of my Surface once I get my type cover on and start really working sometimes gets to me.. Not a deal breaker, but not perfect. More importantly, the clunkiness of Skype really worries me now that MS is dropping MSN Messenger. Does this worry anyone else? Will MS get it's act together and fully incorporate Skype into messenger/people without having to go through Skype? The incorporation of 'People' in Skype also confuses me. Why are my messenger friends on Skype? Why do I get two notifications from Skype AND messages when I'm talking to someone on MSN? ... It's all just really confusing and has me pretty angry. I just want ONE place where I have everyone, and I want that place to not lag like Skype does. 5. Lock Issue Lastly, and most serious, which has me concerned and wondering if I should return/exchange my Surface is this incredibly aggravating lock issue.. I haven't found any threads talking about it, but I'm wondering if anyone has had this glaring issue: Randomly, when my surface locks/sleeps (whatever it does when not in use for extended times) I cannot unlock it. I'll press the lock button to unlock it, but it does nothing. I hit the windows key, it gives haptic feedback, but still the black screen taunts me. To fix it I have to hold my power button and press it again for the surface to restart. When it's restarting, if the screen shuts off again, the screen stays black until I have to restart it again. This happened during an update too. So has anyone else had this problem? Is it my Surface's Hardware? A Software problem being fixed?
