    Was there anything special that you needed to do? I'm running 8.1 RTM Professional and I can't get the new intel driver to install. Is there perhaps a windows settings that needs to be tweaked to allow the installation? Thanks, Rob

    8/13/13 Update - better battery?

    Hi guys, I had a quick question. When I applied the firmware update I didn't have the typecover attached, do you think this caused the firmware update to only be partially applied? I just recently purchased a surface pro so i'm very new to the update process. Any insight would be greatly...
