You can "Dare" to say whatever you want. It doesn't change my situation of having a faulty device. Is it stupid of me to be disappointed? This device has nothing but great reviews, if I could have predicted all the problems I would have I wouldnt have sold my macbook in the first place.I didn't say you were a fanboy. I said it sounded to me like you had the fanboy mentality going into the surface. Regardless of how great the surface might be from the perspective of before getting it, your older device was a proven device for your purpose. By getting rid of your old, proven device to get a new, unproven device, dare I say it was kinda a stupid thing to do?
I'm sorry you've been through the trouble you've described. I say get rid of the surface and buy a macbook.
I hope someone else who is thinking of switching to a microsoft setup reads this thread and has some kind of headsup / warning of what they may encounter.
I put up with more problems in this one device than all my other devices combined. If the screen would have messed up within my return period I would not be here posting about surface. I would be off to something else to try and suit my needs...
