I updated my rt from rt 8.1 preview to rt 8.1 rtm on the first day of launch. No issues so far, in fact it became better. I also updated my other 2 laptop from 8 pro to 8.1 pro. No issues but become better also.
Hello, after updating to rt 8.1, can your app store work well? mine seen to unable to download apps

Those facing the apps issue can follow the below link. I followed Steven_B's steps and downloaded the troubleshooter and my problem is solved. Once the Surface rebooted, click on appstore then let it run in background for awhile. After that try downloading some apps to make sure all is ok.

Can't download Store apps, sometimes the Store doesn't load - Microsoft Community

hand writing is equally having issue too =x , i cant seem to write some non english words like "oni" etc.
Try writing letter by letter. It'll take a few days for Windows to learn your handwriting. Teach it by using correction.

I am on RT 8.1. IE browser seriously slow. Always waiting for a few seconds for page to load. Even go back page needs few seconds. Frustrated just browsing internet. Even my samsung S2 browser have superior browsing experience. Seriously worst than iOS and android.

Downloaded three party browser just improved the speed abit. Didn't really help much.

Even my lousy LG phone Dual Core Cortex A9 1GHz has faster browsing experience. I seriously think it is poor Windows RT Microsoft Browser implementation. Tegra 3 is Quad Core 1.6Ghz each.

I am pretty sure that they will have the prices once available. So far I made good experiences with them.

My bro is playing dota 2 on his surface pro. From what I see, surface pro can support it well. Just that when playing, the fan is spinning furiously.
