I would like the Surface Pro but my doubts lie with how the i5 will perform. I don't want a very hot tablet or one that actually has a audible fan. Battery life 7-8 hours is required.

So happy to see so many Surface fans and to know I'm not alone on all this.

Just watched the live stream and can't keep my excitement but the Surface really looks great. Sadly I won't be getting it yet cause getting it would mean carrying my 2011 Macbook Pro and the Surface together. Probably get the Surface2 when the time comes.

You ought to wait for Haswell and window 8.5 or later to see anything near 4-6 hours.

WTS: 3x Surface RT 32GB + Touch Cover (black)

hi all, I got a relative who is returning from US and he has bought 3 additional surface rt (32gb + black touch cover) and is looking to sell it for S$1100. Apparently he got an additional type cover too but not too sure how much he wants to sell that for (he is on the plane now back to sg with my copy of surface so i'm terribly excited).

Do PM me if you're interested!

Mine will reach via cgw by next week Friday apparently. A US$250 premium for a 32GB Surface + Touch is pretty pricey though, but I guess there'll be someone willing to buy it at that price.

US$25 for shipping + insurance. For a declared value of US$600, 7% GST on US$625 adds on another US$44 so about additional US$70 for shipping + taxes (SG$87.50).

Ordered directly at http://surface.microsoftstore.com/st...ESICaching=off, so pretty much around SG$840 in total.
