Prices listed on Amazon are in USD. You'll be taxed for items valued more than (I believe it was) S$400 when it gets shipped here.
I think is in $SG .. because when it came out .. It is $599 with cover .. Now the Amazon website put $719 (32 with cover) by microsoft .. Cant be they inflat the price by 100 dollar plus ? It looks more like a discount as different companies at Amazon now pushing down the price ... FYI i logged into my account .. maybe they reflected in Singapore dollar since i register my nationality ?

Comparison between Nexus 10 and Surface:



Part 1 focuses on web browsing. Part 2 compares the displays, basically higher resolution isn't necessarily better.



Judging from reviews it should easily last a full day with moderate to heavy usage. Based on Engadget's battery test it'll last around 9.5 hours of continuous video watching. Also it takes around 2 hours from nearly empty to 100% charge, which is pretty good.



No official apps at the moment, although there are third party Twitter apps. You can connect your Facebook/Twitter accounts and your news feed will show up in the People app. Works pretty well, or you can also just pin the website to the Start screen.
im using my surface for 4 days alr.. im a student who uses pdf, ppt, excel, word, music, internet browsing, social media and actively using it from 9am to 3pm then at home from 5pm to 12am. It can last me thru the whole day with 20% of battery left most of the time. wifi and Bluetooth always on and connected for me. smth I really like about it is that I only need about 2 hours to charge it while still using it from empty to full. For example now, this morning I charged it at 615am with 20% to start with. Now at 712am, it is already 70% while I'm using it to study for my exams. Love my surface. I've never used my laptop for 4 days alr. Surface meets my needs. Cheers
great to hear about the good battery performance.
impressive.

im waiting for the pro version. lets hope its going to be as impressive.

no splitting touch cover for me. 1 thing is that when i tried to pause a video there will be a loud buzzing sound...

there was a known issue about the small tear near the connector area on the touch cover.

Microsoft News | New Surface update KB 2756872 being pushed out, offering performance improvements, better battery life.

Have you updated yet? It's supposed to improve audio and video playback amongst other things.

Much lower end? It's i5 with 4GB RAM, 1080p display and SSD which is pretty decent. The only problem is how much more it'll be compared to US prices.

the spec should be somewhat similar to the existing ultrabook.

Very old update...we already have several others on top plus a firmware update.
Most of the issues fixed by now...
