Yes, but 125% is the max scaling. I turned it on til I got used to it and now it's back at 100%. If I need fine mouse control for the desktop, I just use the touch cover.

Look at all the peeps with their WP's next to the Surface :)

I wish MS or OEM's would have come out with an RT version that can do inking, I woulda been in heaven and handing over my money faster than the flash. Now im left waiting for the pro or one of the oem pros if impatience gets the better of me.

I have a lot of surfaces in my home...



Seriously though, I consider now. I got Win8 and I'm impressed. I'm liking it over Win7 atm. Just gotta get used to it though.

Anand's review mentioned about the keyboard lag with the Type Cover keyboard. I actually experienced it myself when I started typing really fast. Is this a software bug or a hardware issue? I don't like the Touch Cover, but I'll have no choice, but to get that one if the Type Cover's issue is a hardware related problem. I didn't experienced any lag with the Touch Cover.

Did ya install all the updates? A few people had that problem and updating solved it for them.

What does the surface do for the Microsoft Eco system? If you have windows phone and /or windows 8 does it sync contacts, cals, data from apps and all the rest of it?

Your question about what Surface does for the Microsoft ecosystem is confusing. I'm not sure what you're asking.

But yes, it does sync your contacts and calendar with the cloud and all your devices, and apps can roam data, although the app developer has to support it. In addition, it will also automatically sync your Windows settings and wallpaper between Windows 8 devices you use.

Does the 'swipe from the top downward to close app' become a problem for some casual games?
