    PLEASE- post your serial numbers here!

    Both from the AU Microsoft Store. Lot 1432 was received on release day. Had no functionality issues, but a cosmetic issue, as the kickstand had a slight bow on the mid-left side that meant it didn't sit completely flush when closed. Since Australia has no Advanced Exchange support, I purchased...

    Internet browser

    You need to set IE as your default browser in order to use it as a Modern UI App. This is the touch IE browser. To answer your initial question, I use Modern IE exclusively when not connecting another monitor. When connecting an additional monitor and a mouse, I use both Modern IE (on Surface)...

    SPro Accessories

    Thanks for the intel on the accessories, mate. I was already set on grabbing the wireless keyboard attachment, as I've found I actually prefer using the type cover keyboards over standard keyboards, and now I'm doubly set. Probably gonna grab the docking station too. The arc mouse sounds...

    Got my Type Cover 2...

    WiFi chip on the SP2?

    Thanks for these. Side note for every one new to the Surface, the only time I've ever had wireless issues was when on battery. This was remedied by ensuring that in my advanced power settings, for whichever power plan I'm using, that the wireless adapter settings were set for Maximum...

    Check your Windows Store for 8.1

    Hi. I had the same issue. I rebooted the SP and that fixed the problem. I opened the Store and it said "Installing Windows 8.1 Pro..." in the top right corner. It's downloading as I type. So, give rebooting a shot.

    Wavy lines on extended monitor (weird)...
