    ...and I like it.
    It's a bit bulkier than I expected. Tho I am more used to my VivoTab

    It will be interesting to load up some 'proper' apps (Visual Studio etc) and see how it performs

    Go blame Instagram, it's not Microsoft's problem.

    It is a bit awkward at first, but I actually kinda like using it in portrait mode, when read long articles at least. Lets you focus just on the text, and I've found the kickstand also supports it in portrait (albeit, it's a little more wobbly, but overall stable).

    I received my 256gb SP2 this afternoon, and I'm typing this response using my Type Cover 2. I'm replacing an older Dell XPS 17, and I'm really liking how small this is in comparison, without feeling like I'm going to destroy it just by looking at it.

    Question though: mine is currently plugged in, but it's not charging past 70%. Is this by design?

    Surely a DOA should get replaced by the retailer??

    You mean the incompetence that is the microsoft store? Yes, unfortunately... It's like herding cats with these people. After the nightmare I've endured with the support, I'm very much tempted to get a refund and look for something else.

    This makes me sad. It's just sitting here at 70% with the message "plugged in, not charging". I'm talking to a rep now.

    Mine stopped at 84% for about an hour and then at some point finished charging to 100%. During the pause it said, "84% - plugged in, not charging" or something like that. At the time I was installing a ton of large desktop programs, letting my SkyDrive sync several gigs of data down, running two external monitors, and generally using it very heavily. I also had the power option set to "high performance" mode which allows causes it to prefer raw speed instead of trying to balance power and heat. I'm not sure if any of that was a factor, but it could be. Charging Li-ion batteries when they are above a certain temp is bad and a lot of charging circuits are designed to pause charging in such cases. Give it some time. It will probably resume when conditions are more normal.

    ...have installed all my desktop software, Modern apps, and finished configuring it. Now I'm "Miracasting" (streaming) my Surface Pro 2 screen to my TV and watching The Walking Dead. I love this thing.

    Mine's plugged in as we speak, err rather, I type (on my new cyan Type Cover 2, no less). It's at 100% and holding. And I'm loving mine too. Even though the 128GB model only has 4GB of RAM, it sure can juggle lots of processor intensive tasks. It's such a breath of fresh air, I feel free to do as I please, and not feel restricted by a sluggish processor. This is truly a powerful little machine, shame the 128GB doesn't get 8GB of RAM to help future proof it, but then again, I suppose the future is more lightweight mobile apps, so I think I'll be good.

    PTV3000

    It works great with my Surface Pro 2 and the latest firmware. However, I spent a lot of time trying to get it to work with my original Surface Pro (just a few days ago) and it just wouldn't work. I think it's probably a driver/hardware issue with the original Pro. Miracast was brand new around the time the Surface Pro was being released. Anyway, it's working flawlessly on the SP2 so I'm happy. If you get one, make sure you update the firmware right out of the box and hit Windows Update first too. My SP2 installed some updates which might play a factor. Miracast requires some fairly cutting edge wireless network driver support.

    I'm actually typing this on my living room TV right now. Pointless, but fun.
