    I can't remember, will you be able to continue typing with the Clipboard removed? In other words is there a BT option available?

    Anyone received tracking yet? (Although I don't know if anyone else has preordered on here) I keep waiting thinking tracking will show up as they authorized my card already.

    Cool video here with a teardown by microsoft themselves. The guy is super goofy when unboxing; but get past that and skip to around 17 minutes and he tears the whole device down... very interesting at that point:

    We just got one of the high end configurations with Qaudro graphics installed. We have just started testing, but one caveat for those that might want to use these for gaming. Our initial tests are showing great results with CAD and modeling apps, but game performance LOWER than the previous version.

    TLDR, if you want to game with this system stick with the GTX video cards

    Absolutely, I hope nobody ordered quadro for gaming just cause "RTX!"

    Where did you order your unit from? I'm still waiting for Microsoft to give me shipping details... really hoping it arrives tomorrow and doesn't just ship tomorrow. I'm impatient; can you tell?

    I'm also still waiting for my shipment notice. Like you cbutters, my card was charged, and Microsoft's site still says expected delivery tomorrow. Can they deliver so rapidly? Let's hope so!

    It's a MS provided sample which unfortunately we will have to give back eventually :(

    The saving grace for my optimism is that I ordered a Surface Go 2 on May 12th in the afternoon and it arrived May 13th.

    You should be happy that it arrived at all.
