    I haven't committed either way fully yet. It has been reset and boxed up with RMA but haven't shipped it. I like it but...

    I returned mine, I bought it on the launch day. The EMMC is too slow and a huge bottle neck. When the atom line moves to a storage solution that doesnt drag, I will keep it.

    I'm keeping mine. I still have another 13 days left for my return window but I have no intentions of returning it, not unless it really gives up on me. Everything has been smooth aside from a few minor things here and there. Last night it kept losing connection with my NAS drive so streaming a movie to my Xbox One was a pain. Restarting the Surface 3 solved the issue.

    Gaming has been a pleasant surprise too. I was able to play GTA San Andreas, Half-Life 2, and Goat Simulator all at the native resolution with medium to high detail settings. I'm looking forward to Xbox One game streaming with Windows 10.

    I would love to see this tablet with a 4w Braswell Celeron with mSATA support. eMMc is seriously my only real complaint.

    ...but I still kept it It's the best companion device available IMO.

    Okay. I have to ask. What is a Goat Simulator? I have this funny image in my mind.

    MS Should be happy with the 84% retention rate among a fussy group like this.

    I agree with wishing they used Braswell Celeron, but the last gen Celeron and Pentium based Celeron models had connected standby issues.

    It's even worse than you can imagine. Do NOT google it

    Yea, it is turning out way better than I expected. For some reason though, it seems like some of the "returners" are choosing not to vote in the poll (even when they are posting in the thread =P).

    So what's the best way to calibrate the pen? Very fluid but off by a bit. The stock method did not help
