    Is This Finally the End for the Surface

    The performance is night and day when its plugged in than running off battery. If Microsoft can fix this issue without comprising battery life, I will keep this, otherwise it would be useless to have a tablet always plugged in to an outlet.

    I totally agree.. I'm getting a bit frustrated with the performance and especially the wifi being so slow on battery. Overall the surface is slow at times and studder. I'm coming from the original surface pro and it seems that I am taking a performance downgrade and a upgrade in screen only...

    Surface Pro 3 slow WiFi speed after udpate?

    how do you put into high performance via powercfg? im not a techie person. i know you run in command prompt. When you operate in these low power modes, you have the time it takes for the devices to ramp up the power. I've never liked this, and always notice delays. When the surface is put...
