Good...why not good. The condition is mint, other than a blemish on the windows logo at the back. Battery was 0 wear on first charge, sitting at 1.1% now.



From the same seller?

I ran a system check when I got home, it indicated that the OS was installed in the morning before I picked it up. Seller might have checked ahead of time to see if there was a problem. Better check with Microsoft, I don't think the seller is dishonest though, especially if your packaging was all in order.
I bought mine from challenger lei

so far, very happy with the pro2.
maybe i'm using it more as an ultrabook replacement.

hence, i'm very happy with the current battery life (been running it for 4 hours, with 20% of juice to go) as i've been running updates, software installations, surfing and syncing of my files. however, if you are looking for a standard tablet kind of battery life like ipad or other androids, you'll be disappointed.

weight wise, same...as i'm using it occasionally as tablet, it's not bad. however, it's definitely not meant for prolong usage as a tablet. possible strain on the wrists/hands. but ultrabook/laptop wise is great.

now if my freedom case could fly here soon...May can't come fast enough.

Man of action... great that u are enjoying ur sp2.

yes, its a little too naked especially with its vapourMg body, and the freedom case is a little far away, looking at 2-3months,

go get a sleeve for netbook first or get a temp case, funan 4/5th level china guy, selling surface pro leather case, about $30-35. i don't really like it, it has magnets on the front of case. read from xda, magnets is bad for the capacitive touch screen.

or get this Maroo - Cases, Covers, and Accessories for iPad, Kindle 3 and Android tablets
shipped it over is faster than the freedom, about a week. like the SG Bumper, Maroo - Cases, Covers, and Accessories for iPad, Kindle 3 and Android tablets

it shouldn't hv a problem, its a pc. so can even run virtualbox.

in fact by default the windows 8/8.1 pro already has Hyper-V
Run virtual machines on Windows 8 with Client Hyper-V - Microsoft Windows

hooting a used Surface later, anything I should look out for?

Been eyeing the Surface ever since it was released, I love the clicking sound of the keyboard to the surface, finally getting my hands on one, can click for all I want
