Finally got my SurfaceRt 32gb with blue touch cover! My sis bought it for me from the states and Im loving it so far! HW is really wonderful and keyboard is definitely easy to use.
I really wanted to buy it here but Microsoft SG is still not sure when so i had it purchased in the US!

One problem i noticed for Windows 8 in general (i also upgraded my Win7 PC to Win8) is that when you use your microsoft acct as the main account, people app wont load FB and twitter. Once i changed it to a local acct, people acct will function normally. Dunno why this happens to my acct. Anybody encountered this problem?
this shouldn't be happening. it working fine on my windows 8 pc.

did you look into the setting?

I don't remember if I had to sign in on Facebook or if it was automatically added because I've already connected Facebook to my Microsoft Account. You could try doing that, or if you've already done so, try disconnecting and re-connecting your Facebook account.

Same as ashhong, I'm also using multiple devices so that shouldn't be the problem.

Anyone have found a 3G dongle that's NDIS 6.3 compatible? I was looking for one for my Surface.

On a side note, if anyone is looking for Surface RT. Try http://Expansys.com.sg I got mine for S$833 [32GB + Black Touch Cover].

lol after numerous torture by my baby siblings my touch cover finally splitted in the middle......... has permanent marker ink on it too, but luckily its black so its not obvious
Saw this, been pretty careful every time I handle that

Can I confirm that the Window RT cannot install any addition software unlike Window 8?

Anybody knows how much of the internal memory is accessible after taking into account the OS? And can I load my documents, powerpoints, movies etc into the microsd card?

My understanding is OS has its own 2G memory.

Good luck with that. You're pretty much in for a wait I guess.

Thanks for the help. hmm really looking forward to the release. anyway, my initial impressions with Surface RT is that: so far, so good. my only main gripe is the lack of apps. hopefully that will change in time to come.

No separate Memory for the OS, it's in the main. RAM is 2GB, though.
There will be a 4GB recovery partition and the OS will take out 14GB. So beware...if you only get the 32GB, half of it will be gone by default.
The SD card is just a regular drive. You can do with it what you please. You just need to play around a bit with virtual/dynamic links (mklink) to include folders on the SDcard in your dynamic libraries...but no biggie.
I have a 64GB plus a 64GB MicroSD. Space aplenty. And I keep all media on the SD, so I can swap it between Surface and my Series7 Slate.

Try MobileHD player, one of the better ones including network playback. Still no mkv though
