    When Windows 10 Arrives

    There are probably better places to ask about this, but as I am here........ I have "reserved" the Windows 10 release for my Surface Pro 3, my HP Windows 8.1 laptop and my HP Windows 7 desktop. I have heard that we will have the option of a full fresh install. My understanding of that is that...

    For whatever reason, my SP3 was stuck at the Shutting Down screen for quite a while. Holding down the power button seemed to do nothing. Normally I would have unplugged a PC or pulled the battery from my laptop under similar conditions. No way to do either with the SP3...... Is there some...

    Lightroom on the SP3

    I want to get Lightroom 5 on my SP3. I have purchased several versions (including 4) over the years but they are installed on other computers and I see no way to do an "upgrade" to my SP3. I am considering either doing the $10 a month subscription service from Adobe (if I use Photoshop much...

    Uses for OneNote

    I have had MS OneNote installed on my computers, laptops and even my phone probably since it first became available. Before that I had Evernote installed. Never got around to using either program. At this point in time I am far from my student days and retired from my career. But I still...

    SP3 Bag

    I have been looking around for a bag to carry my SP3 with keyboard. I want something with a handle (strap optional) and pockets to hold accessories, including the charging block and cables. I don't want it too tight. Neoprene would be fine. Leather, cloth, whatever. Black or gray. I was...

    Keyboard Cover Lighted Keys

    I love having a lighted keyboard since much of computer time is in the evening. I am happy that the Keyboard cover for the SP3 is lit. However I am unhappy that the lighted keys go dark after inactivity. I realize that this is to save power, but it would be nice if they stayed on with the SP3...

    First Impressions

    I had a chance to play with my new purchases (SP3 I5 8gigs, black keyboard cover and docking stand) last night. My biggest hurdle is learning Windows 8.1 as a touch system. I have an HP 13" non-touch laptop which I acquired over a year ago with Windows 8.1. But I almost always used it like it...

    Best Deal?

    OK, I am pretty much decided on the I5 with 8 gigs of ram. My two choices for purchase are Amazon or BestBuy. Amazon is 99 cents cheaper with free shipping and no sales tax (at least up front) if I have it shipped to SC or FL. BestBuy is $1199.99, but I have a card for 10% off one item which...

    Screen Protector?

    The Costco bundle of two version of the Surface Pro 3 include a Tempered Glass Screen Protector. Is this really necessary? I thought (or believed) that the screen has gorilla glass.........

    Outdoor Viewing

    How readable is the screen outside in the sunlight? I normally use my Amazon Paperwhite for reading outdoors, but would love to have the functionality of the SP3 when sitting outside......

    Core I5 or Core I7 SP3?

    I do not game. I do do a lot of image editing (Lightroom and Photoshop) and video editing. Will I notice a difference between a Core I5 or a Core I7 both with 8 gigs of ram and 256 gig storage? If the I7 will make any difference and not run significantly hotter, I will pay the extra bucks...

    To Surface Pro 3 (or wait)

    A Microsoft Surface Pro is in my future. But I hesitate for a couple reasons...... Logistically, this would be my first computer/laptop without an optical drive. Sure I could always obtain a USB connected optical drive, but do I really need one? It seems like most software can now be...
