Now I can easily charge my SP1 using my Anker Astro Pro2 20000mAH charger anywhere. cool!

got a spare one coming (ordered another which is on the way) so if anyone interested, just pop me a PM.
Is the portable battery power pack huge ? I mean big ?

ahh ur first line is enough to stop me from buying le if no warranty coverage.. might as well get surface 2 pro if both no warranty
Dell venue seems to be pretty expensive as compare to surface 2 pro, when looking at the specs it offers.... Is there no other competitors.. beside surface pro 2 premium pricing?

If you looking at SG then yea dam ex..in USA the venue is quite abit cheaper than SP2, with same specs

The price you pay for the venue in US is about half the SG one

Even the Sp2 power cover costs double the price of the dell version

So I don't really feel the weight.

Wow Microsoft must really hate me..
I sent my Surface RT + Touch keyboard in for warranty.. They sent a replacement keyboard which has a non-functioning touchpad.
My RT's charging port is now rusty, have to try tens of times before I can successfully charge it. Cannot use it while it's charging otherwise will get disconnected. The keyboard connector also rusty, sometimes cannot detect the cover.
Sent 2 functioning devices to them, came back with 2 malfunctional devices. Thanks a lot Msft...


I've been an avid fan of Microsoft, coming from WP7&8, but this Surface experience really spoilt my whole experience with Microsoft

I feel you bro. I sent my s2 to them on last Wednesday. Reason for that is due to auto shut down, I even did a Windows refresh and reset to factory setting but problem still persisted. I am crossing my fingers now that I'm getting a better model. Otherwise I will get a refund !

Just a general info: Microsoft outsourced their refurbishment to Jabil - aftermarket services sector. I believed you sent your device to them right?

Yep Jabil.

This is one of the reasons that they do not succeed in Singapore. The lady from Jabil told me that it will be ready within 5 working days.. True?

Correction, one of the reasons why they will not succeed. lol.

Each passing day results in lagi longer necks waiting for the mythical or legendary "may appear" SP2.

If I remember few months back one of the users did ever says the same old thing, till now
have not even see one real live SP2 Pro. And you know they always good at telling story
by saying it coming ... all are bloody crap ..never trust those people.

You can wait long long ..it may never come I already give up of waiting.

Will prolly come when sp3 is out.. Then they will send all the old stocks to sg to clear at higher price. Almost all the brands do that
