    Windows 8.1 question

    Ok so I should probably know this, but when windows 8.1 finally comes out, what is the process I will need to follow to upgrade to it. Right now I have 8.1 preview installed on my SP. Do I need to do a system restore through control panel to bring it back to factory and then I can upgrade to...

    sure, get an external DVD drive, or rip the DVD to a flash stick or micro sd card and watch it from there :-)

    eBay: Surface RT w/ Keyboard, $199 USD (Manufacturer Refurb)

    Just make sure that when you get the ebay refurb that you can register it, to get the 1 year warranty. Mine was still registered to the previous owner and microsoft couldnt help me. So I either have to send it back to the ebay seller (and forfeit the good deal) because he probably doesnt have...

    Surface Ordering Problems?

    IMO Microsoft customer support is extremely lacking, I agree with you. I purchased a 200$ refurbished 64gb RT from an ebayer (he sold 2300 of these) I received it brand new sealed in a microsoft box. It had a problem straight out the box so I called customer service for a replacement and they...

    How do I fix the type cover keyboard, reinsert key

    The keys just pull off, and snap back on. The plastic is pretty tough so you shouldnt worry too much about breaking it. If it wont snap on right, just make sure the part still on the keyboard is aligned, then check the key out and make sure the grooves are in good condition that it snaps into...

    Surface 2 to offer more rigid BACKLIT KEYBOARD?!

    As far as I know, all the accessories excluding the power cover will work for the originals. The power cover will only work for the original PRO, not the RT. But the keyboards should work just fine for both. Again, maybe I am wrong, but I would think they would work fine.

    Microsoft Officially Unveils New Surface Pro 2

    Yes, all the accessories for the SP2 will work for the original PRO, but the Power Cover will not work for the original RT, just the pro. But the keyboards should work for the old RT just fine. As far as the prices are concerned, I only read that the price for the 64gb SP2 was announced...

    Who is pre-ordering? And which model are you pre-ordering?

    I believe only the 64gb SP2 price was announced. 899$ which is more expensive than the original I believe. The 256 is going to be 1100-1200$ I would only assume.

    Surface -> Surface 2 Trade in Program

    Gabe406, just remember that if you aren't paying 20$ for the eBay store subscription, it will cost you about 10% in fees. So if it sells for 600$ ebay will take 60$, and paypal will take 3% of 600$, which is 18$. So thats about 80$. Make sure you get a basic ebay store membership before you...

    Former Apple Fanboy Arrives, Seeks Peace

    The only question I can offer any feedback to is the last one. While the surface is in a "tablet" form, it is far from a tablet. Its a full featured computer. Think of it as a laptop in a tablet form. It will handle everything in your last question just like a laptop would. Of course the...

    eBay: Surface RT w/ Keyboard, $199 USD (Manufacturer Refurb)

    I purchased on of the 64gb RT's when it was 199$, it came in a microsoft refurbished box, sealed. Looked brand new. Although first time I plugged in the type cover and took it off, it ripped the magnets out of the buttom of the surface. Guess thats why it was a refurb, and obviously microsoft...

    hard, adjustable case?

    Yes, while it isn't perfect, the slim moko case is the only case out right now that looked appealing to me and covered at least some of what I wanted. I needed some protection for it! All in all I give the Moko Case a 3 1/2 out of 5 stars. I would love to try a prototype of your case. And...

    Having to double tap to left click on steam games?

    I asked the Developer about this for the game "Skulls of the Shogun" and he said that its not possible because they would have to re-code the game to work with touch input. I believe the simple fact is that these games are not coded for touch input so the mouse will not work with your finger...
