Are you referring to the surface edition touch arc mouse? I am actually using it. Bought it online from Microsoft store Singapore for 98.

My surface 2 just automatically shut down when it was in sleep mode. I think my bag accidentally pressed the power button or it automatically shut down itself...

Realized that the touch cover easily get "dog ears" if you get what I mean.
Have to treat with extra care when putting inside the bag.

I also kena that stupid MS narrator. Press volume up and the narrator comes to life and keeps rattling off whats on the screen. Basically, it hijacked my volume up n down rocker button. Crap..... That was thoroughly painful to disable.

That gay sounding voice. lol. "narrator .... online" lol.

From what I read, its due to the windows button on the tablet kena stuck. Thus, when you press vol up and the windows button also kena stuck, it will trigger narrator. Dunno how true.

indeed..but i nid ms office on the go and a keyboard... what are the i7 ultrabook options?
There are plenty. You can get the Asus Zenbook or one of their i7 series. Or you can try Vivotab Note 8 which is also very portable and is still full windows 8.

Price is one consideration. More important is whether you think the device fits your needs. A friend shot down SP1 for having a heavy weight despite functionality and compared against an apple ipad, which obviously wouldn't have a fully functional MS Office and compatibility with legacy windows 8 applications. It simplifies to what you are looking for.

dell pro 11 looks good too.
but seriously...development wise...
pro 2 probably not the best solution.
coz personally, I only uses it portably for a short duration. at home, I connect it to my 26" tv. coz you are gonna kill your eyes and won't be able to stand looking at such a small screen when coding lol.

Was at challenger jus now. A customer asked the sales guy whether sp2 coming soon. Same answer given. Thats "coming soon".

Think sp2 will lose a lot of sales before even landing in sg. Lol.
