Need to register your product first, at support page u will see an option to extend warranty. Click it, it will direct u there.

https://www.microsoft.com/surface/en-sg/support/

start from here.

BTW the pen update is under Change PC settings - there is a lot of windows update and firmware to be completed in a step by step manner.

150 USD for me since it was a US set. 50 USD for replacement of broken tablets - no questions asked.

does it support 128gb micros?

Hey alan, here have your answers already

supports for 128gb microsdxc

quite expensive man. but good investment. will check it out tmr coz near my school. if the cuttings are perfect then probably will just get it? since they can apply it also hahaha. any recommendations for a good 64gb micro sd card guys?!

There's many range right now...

Samsung is probably the best bet as according to their 32GB, though it is not 64 GB, the review will give you a little light to what you would expect

Reviews

Sandisk extreme plus 64GB

Will the screen protectors damage the pen or affect the quality of annotations?

Hey Mikiberry does the updates takes very long ?

From what I know from reading this large post,

GLASS Screen Protector : rubbery feel

Will cause some issues with using the pen smoothly, as the fiction from the Screen Protector ( in terms of damage probably will wear the pen tip faster. )

Right now someone just bought the MIME Ghost Glass Screen Protector , as he/she stated that it does not affect the pen sensitivity, awaiting for his/her reply

Hi

Can somebody check the i7-4650U processor's turbo speed

According to Intel it should be up to 3.3GHz

ARK | Intel® Core

But the SP3 i7 PC info page is showing 1.7 GHz 2.3GHz

Who's right?

I have read through so many reviews online on how normal PET or plastic screen protectors technically wearing off the pen. So far based on my research, no issues with ghost glass.

Anyway please charge your SP3 and make sure you have a good connection before updating all firmware and etc. I got a bad firmware update before and it is a pain in the arse to go through with support to clear it. I am lucky since my SP3 support is from the US (US set), but be reminded that our Singapore is "Singapore" standard at best.

Anyone knows which browser is optimised for touch? I am so used to the Safari and Bettertouchtool combo for mac that I find it really difficult to use the normal browsers in SP3 ;(

Other thing have to consider when buying Surface:
- RT is dead for sure, no good reason to go for it unless you really need the free office product.
- Win8.1 currently, possible to upgrade to next version of Windows?

That's a problem with Firefox, it does not work that well with touchscreens for zooming. U'll get better result with I.E unfortunately

when you close your type cover, do you see a gap between the type cover and the tablet ?

ie. is the "top" of the screen , where the camera is located slightly curved compared to where the type cover is connected ?

if not then my screen is warped ??

just checking... does the device has wake-up-on-double-tap feature?

also, when we close the lid, does the tablet go into sleep? shut down? hibernate?

hmm...
