Is there a portable battery power bank like the conventional 30000mah or 20000mah that can be used to charge the Surface Pro?
I'm considering what the other forummer did. he gave up the s pro and switched back to his laptop and used the RT. Still the pro is ultimately not simply a tablet so I could be more forgiving towards batt life.
I am expecting Haswell cpu to be much more higher priced. It may not be an attractive option. As and when it reaches Singapore my interest in pro part 2 when it releases would have diluted given other win8 tablet choices by then.
The mobile phone battery packs you use today are all used only for 5V devices... your laptops and tablets are usually 12V devices... so none will work... I've spent some time looking for such small portable batteries and the suitable plug converters but they are not available. The only unit that can charge both laptops, tablets and phones and is easily available in Singapore is the Energizer XPal portable battery. You have to buy the 18,000 mAh model which costs over S$250. I bought mine from Amazon for about S$180 some years back at some special sale on Amazon. You can buy different tips to fit different laptop and tablet charging jacks. You get two free tips to swap around. All you need to check their available list. Interestingly I had MIC tablets and I asked for a suitable tip, and they had something suitable. All I had to do was to measure the tip and send in a picture on the website. The drawback of this battery pack is that it is very heavy...
not going to be cheap in singapore. we still got GST to pay....
Surface Pro availability update: Hong Kong on May 17
Surface Pro will be available for purchase in Hong Kong on May 17. Microsoft HK announced it at its official website. There will be a launch event at the Windsor House, and first 150 customers who buy Surface Pro there could get free gifts – Touch Covers, Wedge Touch mouse and Office 365.
Microsoft HK also revealed the pricing of two versions of Surface Pro. The 64GB one is HK$7,088 (US$913), the 128GB is HK$7,888 (US$1016).
Last month, Microsoft started selling Surface Pro and Surface China editions in China mainland. As expected, the Surface China is available exclusively in China mainland, not even in HK.
As Surface comes to more markets in recent months. Are you going to buy a Surface when it comes available to you? (via LiveSino)
The surface pro is able to handle Facebook games sufficiently. As a reference, it can handle Diablo 3 and League Of Legend, but don't expect performance if you are going for more higher end settings, and higher-end graphic intensive apps.
The GPU power is an integrated HD 4000. The CPU and GPU specs is pretty much similar to my old laptop which can run games above.
