    StarTech Adapter stopped working

    Cant figure out why it will not extend to Samsung TV anymore. It tells me the the resolution is lower than 1024 x 768 and the Samsung is 1280 x 720? How do I tell the SP3 to use a higher resolution on the 2nd monitor? It is greyed out.

    Screen protectors for SP3?

    I bought this one not knowing it was a wet screen protector type. Any reason why I couldn't just install it dry? It also states that there is solution included but I did not receive any.

    Windows Server 2012 R2 on the Surface Pro 2 or 3?

    I am not running Exchange. The primary requirement is low energy usage.

    So...has the SP3 replaced your laptop?

    It has replaced my IBM Thinkpad>Mac Mini>>SP2 I was going back and forth on the Mac Book Pro and the SP3 but the form factor and needs won over the SP3 for me. I cannot believe that any decision does not come with issues or sacrifices. Now I will probably want to upgrade again when the new...

    Windows Server 2012 R2 on the Surface Pro 2 or 3?

    I use Mdaemon Pro from ALTN. I have been using it for 12 years to support me and my wife. It does not require the resources that Exchange does. Now my goal is to run a Mac Mini server type solution that has a low energy consumption foot print. I would use a Thecus Pro 5200 (RAID appliance)...

    Windows Server 2012 R2 on the Surface Pro 2 or 3?

    Anyone considering doing this? I am thinking about using the SP2 as my mini mail server because of the low energy usage. Anyone else tried this yet? On the 2 or 3? I am talking about a full OS replacement. Not the Client Hyper-V that comes with 8.1.

    Where to buy a case locally?

    Anyone know where you can buy a case for the SP3 locally? I don't want a sleeve. I had the Manvex for the SP2 but they are not available yet. I guess I am referring to a Folio style case.

    Some Apple reliability perspective.........not all rosey toeszies

    Sounds about right. The problem went away for him after he cleaned it. You can hear him complain about it on the latest stream. I believe it was in the very beginning of the show. The Show - No Agenda - With Adam Curry and John C. Dvorak

    Some Apple reliability perspective.........not all rosey toeszies

    I think if I could find a low energy consumption Windows Server with redundant disks I would be set. Anyone dare to try and install Windows 2012 R2 Server on one of these bad boys? Now I am curious. I guess they have.

    Some Apple reliability perspective.........not all rosey toeszies

    I have access to Office Mac via MSDN and I already have a copy of Desktop Fusion from VMWare.......these are all things to consider. I love the SP3 so far. I was not happy with the Desktop Fusion performance on the Mac Mini so.......

    Some Apple reliability perspective.........not all rosey toeszies

    I agree. My problem with the MAC (i have a Mac Mini aleady) is that I love the OS but I dont really have anything to do once I sit down in front of it except email and research. With the SP3 I have several tasks that I can accomplish....Remote Desktop Connection to Windows Server, Hyper-V for...

    Some Apple reliability perspective.........not all rosey toeszies

    Apples to Apples Comparison...good to know though. I think going backwards on the screen resolution would be a bummer for me. Not totally opposed to it but once you have feasted on 4k its hard to to look at another woman. What model do you have?

    Any Happy SP3 users?

    I thought the sound on the SP2 was pretty darn good. I may compare them @ Bestbuy the next time i go by there.

    Any Happy SP3 users?

    I am happy with the SP3 so far. I have not had buyers remorse yet but I am looking for it here. My reasons or justification for selling the SP2 and upgrading to the SP3 were different than most. I am trying to decrease my digital/electrical footprint to consume less energy for solar panels...

    This has to go back...

    When I purchased mine the BestBuy rep told me if I didnt like it that I could bring it back in within 15 days. That struck me as odd because I didnt ask about a return policy. SO I am reading these posts with careful attention to make sure I am keeping a winner and not a wiener. I also sold my...

    Trying hard to love the SP3, but...

    I hear you loud and clear. What I do not like is that more often than not I will get that damn throbber spinning waiting on a page to recover. And web page designers piss me off with their fancy shmancy bells and whistles that take precious time away from my day. I want to visit a page...
