    Even more happy I went with the SP2, dell venue 11 stylus is a cheap joke and fujitsu priced themselves out of the consumer market with the Q584.

    That may be possible as it would be tied to the Serial.

    Complete is transferable to the new owner, I purchased it last week and made sure in the fine print. Entered my serial and it is linked to the device. There's a $49 deductible to replace if damaged and is eligible for replacement twice if needed. Was a no brainer for me with the accidental damage for two years and no hassle warranty for as long as I foresee having the device.

    In the UK, Microsoft Complete for the Surface is £250 or approximately $392!!

    FYI my local Microsoft Store (USA) called the $149 policy the "consumer" extended warranty.

    They also offered two "business" warranties, both for 3 yrs (instead of 2). First one is a $299 policy that also covers up to 2 incidents of accidental damage, but without any deductible (instead of $49 each incident).

    In comparison if you end up using up both incidents, you'd pay almost $250 with the "consumer" warranty (which again only covers 2 yrs).

    P.S. The other "business" warranty is cheaper but doesn't cover accidental damage handling, so I wasn't even interested...

    Awesome. That's great news. That does make it a no brainer. Thanks for the info.

    Does Squaretrade offer a policy for Surface Pro 2? I just finished a repair through them with my huge ASUS G75 laptop and there was no deductible...nothing. They were terrific. I am sold on using them wherever I can.

    Just went by the Microsoft store and added the extended warranty to my surface pro 2 and got a nice surprise. Apparently the type cover 2 price has been reduced so I was able to get the warranty for $108 dollars after they refunded the type cover 2 cost change and applied the bundle price that they are running in store.

    FYI, I know I had an issue with only being able to send 720p via Miracast to a PTV3000, but a firmware update released last week appears to have fixed that for me. It works at 1080p right away now.
