    Longest Gameplay?

    Out of interest, does your SP2 get pretty hot and have the fan running loud while gaming? I got Speed Runners off Steam which seems like it wouldn't be too intensive for the SP2 but within minutes of playing the fan is on constantly and the machine feels quite warm. Is that normal? Thanks

    The last few days I've noticed the fans turning on and actually getting pretty loud. The SP2 is also getting quite warm sometimes. This is while plugged in or on battery, sitting on a desk or while I'm holding as a tablet on my lap. Just doing web browsing and emails etc, nothing...

    Desperately need the opinions of Surface Pro 2 owners

    Oh, I forgot to mention that I would be buying a 24" monitor and 1TB external hard drive to go with it

    Desperately need the opinions of Surface Pro 2 owners

    Hi, I am very close to getting a Surface Pro 2 (256gb) to replace my iPad 2 and 2010 iMac. My main concern is whether the Pro 2 is powerful enough to become my only computer, yet nimble enough to be used on the sofa in front of the TV for casual browsing. The most intensive use it would...
