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 :(

My cousin is coming to visit from the US in about 2 weeks from now. Thinking of asking her to lug the SP2 here for me.

To the guys that are already using the SP2, any quirks or prevalent issues with your sets so far?

This might be a bit more tricky. I am not sure how Microsoft's US warranty registration works, but I think they'll require a US address.

AVN8 is the asus vivotab note 8. Its also full windows.

R7 has i7 processor and has geforce. lol. also the 15.6" screen. Power. It still has active stylus too. Good for my class use though excessive. lol

I almost bought this mouse at Challenger but decide to hold back reason being I'm using a tablet so personally I think I might want to use the touch screen more for now. However this mouse is very tempting and am trying to find a Bluetooth mouse similar to it.

Just wondering but with all the trouble you guys are going through shipping this from USA and etc, have you guys considered the Dell Venue 11?

10.8inch
i3/i5/atom, 4/8gb ram and 128/256 ssd?

Even in the USA this is cheaper than the SP2..For some weird reason super ex in SG, like double price liddat
But no warranty la..


Oh and how many hours of battery life you getting on the SP1?
Ive seen mixed reviews from 6 to 4 hours(Wtf so short)?
