    Video App - playing videos from a NAS device

    Its probably to do with a codec issue within the video's app. You're better off navigating to your nas drive via windows explorer and playing your videos with VLC. The native apps are going to have these types of restrictions however thats the benefit of the windows side to the surface pro...

    Surface Pro Headphone Jack???

    The Spec list doesn't reference the 3.5mm jack as being a line in. The Surface Pro has a built in mic and they may have assumed that was sufficient, anyone else wanting to use a dedicated mic would probably have to go USB.

    Anyone replaced their home computer with the Surface Pro?

    I use my surface pro as my all purpose on the go machine, but when I need power and performance I move over to my gaming desktop. Unfortunately the surface pro is no substitue for a true gaming PC. Aside from that its great.

You will notice that it may or may not get any better with use, for me, I ended up switching to the type keyboard because I got tired of the feeling of smashing my...

    cooling fan

    I notice the fans get louder when watching video with the Surface Pro, there is obviously more processing happening when playing back video but I wouldn't call it "Loud" its just noticeable. HW Monitor is a great system monitoring tool.

    Write to Type, purpose?

    for me the handwriting recognition seems to be pretty accurate. I definitely see its being beneficial for someone who would prefer to quickly jot down a note rather than one or two finger type things out. That being said like the OP said, I've only ever really used it out of boredom, simply...

    Surface Pro - Marvell AVASTAR 350N wifi speed?

    I was able to see speeds of 162Mbps on my 5Ghz band N only Dlink router. However this was within 5-10 ft of the router, at around 20ft I was back down to 65, the range on this modem isn't necessarily the best.
