    Fixit Teardown of Pro3.

    Yes I am of the same opinion when the battery gone its time to replace. But its a sad reflection on our very thro away society. That Microsoft and Apple could make their products come apart with screws. When you think an old 10 year old computer on the internet will still do the Shopping...

    Fixit Teardown of Pro3.

    Just look at Fixit tear down of Pro 3. (They already had one but now RIP) It was given 1 out of 10 same as Pro 1 & 2. I would give it 0 as they cracked the screen and bent the battery so in a nut shell destroyed it. Does make the RT a good bet at least you can replace battery via the rear its...

    Is This Finally the End for the Surface

    Have we a rotten Apple in the box? Lets get the facts Apple are all style over substance. They do software updates but keep it well hidden. No one bothers to give them viruses because the internet infrastructure is not Apple. If you want a configurable computer get Microsoft. The problem is that...

    $ to £ cheaper Surfaces?

    Just having a friendly rant. Biggest frustration is when items are sold in USA and not in Europe. Sony are bad for that.

    $ to £ cheaper Surfaces?

    Ok for you to say that in USA. In uk you get less choice (eg no docking station) and less salaries but have to pay more. Something's wrong there or is it we are being ripped off.

    Need a Surface Pro recovery disk

    Just buy the Windows 8.1 on DVD and load via external Drive or make a bootable USB from DVD. You would have or borrow another computer to do this.

    Surface Pro into deep sleep?

    This as happened 5 times now. Have a Surface Pro Ver 1 connected to a 7 way USB 3 externally powered distribution hub. If I put the Surface Pro into Sleep, Shutdown or Hibernate overnight with the 7 way usb hub externally powered it only starts with Volume up and Power On over 10 seconds? Also...

    Need a Surface Pro recovery disk

    Nice when people pull together. But why cannot Microsoft have the downloads to make a recover USB on the internet. Its not like anyone without a Surface can use it.

    Surface Pro 3 Battery Replacement Changes?

    Microsoft I would assume would just replace the surface with a new one if battery failed under warranty. Their pricing after warranty is so you just buy a new surface. Knowing the pro is clued together would you want them pulling it apart? That at least makes the RT a good buy Screwed back so it...
