It's a powerhouse when it comes to business stuff.. discovering the games atm I have that will run nicely.
Valve stuff does run nicely.. Would still love it if it ran BF3 :) 
But for anyone wondering (it was a fear of mine), I have indeed gotten the Surface Pro to hit around 8 hours.. (real tight power settings)
That's with random use through the day, mostly music and some web browsing, some business work.

Also a custom appearance.. Sorry for the crappy vid, thought some might like to see it..
Got the border protector from uhh skinit? The start screen customizer is 'Windows 8 start screen customizer'
Oh, and a fix for the dam pen..

I'm considering buying one, what's wrong with the pen?

Updated the vid... Otherwise nothing wrong with the pen but they forgot to add somewhere to put it when you're charging...lol

Ah I see, not a huge deal to me

Ya it's not a big deal but an annoyance. . . I would suggest the tablet though, it's pretly slick. I was a little cautious because I knew I couldn't game on it but after using it, it rocks on so many different levels it's not even funny! If you want the power plan settings for 7-8 hour battery life let me know and I can post the steps.

I'll keep that in mind, thanks. It'll probably be a few more months before I shell out for one.
