  • Incredible Customer Service - Surface Pro

After a couple of minutes of discussion the technician said that I should exchange the machine. I could do that at the closest Microsoft Store or send it to Microsoft. The Microsoft Store where I got

  • Microsoft Surface Pro

    In early February I found myself standing in line to pick up my new Surface Pro. I was excited. I was again at the Microsoft Holiday Store (pop-up kiosk in a local mall), and I saw the same staff as I had met 90 days earlier when I got my Surface RT. There was a lot of buzz there that day and I enjoyed chatting with some local press writers, and lots of potential customers who wanted to know more about the machine. I was fortunate to have had the Surface RT for 90 days and felt comfortable talking

  • Microsoft Surface RT

    When the Microsoft Surface RT became available - I was right there in line to buy it. I was excited. I was looking forward to a devices conceived, designed, executed, marketed and supported by the company that made the operating system, Windows 8. I knew that I would miss an active digitizer. This been a standard requirement for me for every portable computer that I've owned since 2003. But I was willing to give this a shot. I was also concerned, but aware that some of my mission critical applications

  • Windows 7 RC Build 7100 and Tablet PCs - Very happy so far

    I've got Windows 7 RC running on most of my Tablet PCs and I am very happy with the results. This includes Tablet PCs that were originally shipped with Windows XP Tablet PC Edition. Except for some minor issues like getting screen rotation to work on a Motion M1400, things are working as well, if not better than they did XP. Certainly better than they did in Vista. I just got a new external hard drive so I could do complete backups of my last few production machines and then I'll load Windows

  • M700 and the Intel Matrix Storage Manager

    I have read several threads in various forums and there seems to be a thought that uninstalling the Intel Matrix Storage Manager results in better benchmark scores. The numbers look compelling. I wondered how this might affect me, and whether I would see any difference with applications that I run.

I also have 4 gigs of
