    How to max out your CPU all the time (no throttling).

    When I was testing an i3, the temperature rarely got above 62C with anything I did and I wasn't using the program you recommend. The CPU also stayed at 1.50 most of the time. I found that the i5 actually cooled down quicker than the i3.

    Anyone with hands-on comparison of the 8gb i5 and i7?

    I tried both side by side for about a week and a half. The performance difference for me was not worth the added cost. The i5 did run cooler.

    Availability Surface Pro 2 256 GB

    I just got my SP2 256GB and I live in the U.S. What I did was to go to Nowinstock (Google it) and set up an alert for the SP2. When I got the alert after 2 days, I bought mine from the Microsoft online store.

    New Surface Pro Wacom Pen Drivers Adds Extra Settings!

    Hey, has anyone noticed an improvement in the calibration of the pen with these new drivers? I have. The calibration routine is only 4 points, but it is much better in my limited use.

    Stylus with eraser?

    No, he didn't ask about an S-Pen but he did ask for a recommendation for a stylus with an eraser and based upon my experience with a Surface Pro and an S-Pen with eraser, I gave him mine. The S-Pen with eraser works just fine with the Surface Pro.

    Problem with browsers on Surface Pro

    This happened to me because I had installed Chrome and set it to be the default browser. When that happens, IE won't open in Metro UI anymore.
