    How do I Keep Surface screen clean

    Surface Pro has, as almost every touch-based device a capacitive touch screen (Touchscreen - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia) so as long as you dont't damage the glass it's pretty durable technique. Besides: I use a cotton rag and some window cleaer (a similar german version of this...

    One the features I love and cannot believe i lived without

    Funny thing i find it pretty amazing too such clever gimmicks give the charger a lot more purpose. although i think MS went through the trouble to prevwentusers from using the only USB port to charge their phone with it. BTW - Since i live in Germany i was pretty amazed seeing two other...

    Displayport Issue - SFPro and Dell U2711

    As I wote on #3: I did replace the adapter with a miniDP to DP cable @malberttoo In my opinion that's what are about: offering solutions not unresolved problems. Mine was rather simple after all, but could end up in a lot of outgoing cash flow :) If any mod eads this close it and maybe set a...

    USB 3.0 Dock for 2540x1440? Why Not?

    He ChopChop, I never considerd multi-display usage on the surface since my Dell U2711 seems sufficient in aea an resolution (2560*1440):) so this: can't be true. Im running the surface pro with 2560*1440p on my U2711. The fist cable didn't work so I ordern 2 new ones which work well with...

    Anyone else waiting for a new Microsoft Surface Pro?

    Well since there is no word of a third-party compay using the dock port for a keayboard+battery style cover i wouldn't be surprised MS will bring the dock connector over to the new SFro making it downward compatible. old SFpro Users might get the pleasure of using the "new" covers and maybe...

    External Battery Pack Option

    Hey Russ, we could try Mandarin, so wie have sort of the same basis ;) The whole point of the question for me is to deduce, whether it hurts the long-term usability of the internal battery pack. since it's almost impossible to replace it. if anyone of the electronics geeks happen to know how...

    External Battery Pack Option

    Hey Russ, i'd consider it a hit that the surface has sort of intelligent power system. it doesnt realy proof that the power coming from your external battery pack isnt running through the acutaua built-in pack, does it? it rather proves that as long as the external power source exists the...

    External Battery Pack Option

    Hey guys, i guess this isn't 100% topic related but i must ask this: did anyone find out wether the surface pro will use the built-in battery pack when it is fully charged an connected to the external charger? since continously loading a battery pack seems to hurt long-term battery life.
