My surface 2 kept shutting down automatically when it's sleeping, I wonder if anyone have this experience before? I tried refreshing the Windows few days ago but it still "Kay kiang" shut down automatically during sleep.
Your surface 2 shut down immediately after you close the lid or after a very long period of time?

Yup, but this problem seems to be solved after hitting the reset button to default factory settings as it has not happen for the past 24 hours..


Is it easy for the back cover to be easily scratched?

What has happen was you need to press on the power button to activate the screen if you have close your lid overnight. Which is like your normal laptop. Based on the specs the back cover is actually scratch resistance. Not sure if it is real though but it should not be 100% scratch proof depending on what scratches it.

Its very tough to get. Unless you could get a friend who happen to be going overseas to buy it.

I was looking at ordering via Vshop4u. Payment confirmed, but end up bounced.... cos the USA retailer was out of stock..... And, other services like Vshop4u also don't look safe, eg Comgate which was hit by security issues. For the benefit of those looking at ordering via vpost/ vshop4u, note the HWZ thread on the customer service issues. Very.... worrying. Read liao also no mood buy sp2.

With the amount payable over the internet and via credit card, I also sian liao to order. Stick with my SP1 and buy something else instead. The new Asus Vivo Note 8 is pretty good, if not for the smaller processor and also smaller ram. I'm quite sold to get the AVN 8. Besides if SP1 does a great job for my presentations, then I will use a 2nd tablet as a secondary display when i do presentation. Save (sgd 2k less sgd 500) S$1,500 and plus pre-installed office 2013! and still got left over to buy a power cover, if i gian enough.

PS: If you see MS fb page, the MS people all refuse to commit to a specific launch date plus rumors have been spreading that MS will not be bringing sp2 to sg.

Yeah, and I'm also worried about local support if I buy from overseas. Unfortunately, the models I'm looking for are all not here yet, like Miix 2 11. Need a full windows tablet like sp2 that can photoshop and have wacom digitiser.

Avn 8 is quite good. Got wacom n full windows plus office thrown in. I was tempted over acer r7 572. Comes with geforce n i7. Not sure if its using a n-trig or wacom stylus. N still cheaper than shipping in a sp2 which still wont have a geforce....

i have the same concerns with the above posts about buying an sp2 from overseas. and it's not cheap too so if something happens, you really suck thumb.

if by june/july sp2 is not here, either i'll get an asus zenbook or an SP1.

using the logitech mouse t630.
really small and good as a on the go mobile mouse.
no need the unifying adapter which came with my other logitech mouse M600, that takes up the usb port.

so, this one just connects with the surface pro's bluetooth.
kinda pricey, i bought it for $94 at challenger after 5% discount...or else it would have been 99
