Btw... for normal usage like a tablet.

I am throttling its CPU to just 50% of its usual peak when running under battery.
A more realistic one will be 5 hours, just to give you a rough gauge of the battery as compared to your notebook when idle on the start screen.

Hi,

Just got the Surface Pro from Challenger. Anywhere to find a good matt screen protector for the surface pro?

I have tried and use my old mbp minidisplayport adapter and it works fine on surface pro.

Thanks!

Anyone knows where to get Surface RT VGA adapter? I can't find it anywhere.

Microsoft webbie can't order... :( All my payments bounced back when it reaches Microsoft. :(

Online webbies too expensive also... :(

Hi All,

I bought my surface pro at Challenger Plaza Singapura on Monday.

Collected the 3G mifi router on Wednesday as they said the router stock is not in yet.

Hope that answer your questions.

Fan doesn't kick in. It'll when I play games like BlackShot, LOL, etc but not photoshop, web surfing, visual studio...

I know its not accurate, that's why I asked you to compare it with your ultrabook/notebook, etc :) for a rough gauge
