    Either the TPT2 is a lot smaller than I imagined, or the dude in that video has GIANT hands.

    I'm gonna go with the giant hands theory lol...

    Anyway, does the TPT2 playback 1080p MKV files over HDMI without issue? Also, I've heard the memory bandwidth is quite low on Atom based tablets so does the OS slow to a crawl when you're downloading something in the background or perhaps torrenting?

    I'm having some issues with System interrupts shown in the task manager. This process is always active, eating from 1-10% of my cpu. I think it's causing my battery to drain faster than normal.

    From what I can gather, a rogue driver usually causes the interrupts. Doing some testing now.

    Did anyone get the keyboard dock? Any impressions about it?

    When I get mine after work I will use my Wacom pen to see if the digitizer is truly Wacom.

    For a desktop keyboard, I prefer a full sized one and for a travel KB, I prefer a folio type, so it's easy to transport.

    My microphone has disappeared. Doesn't show in audio settings, nor can I find it in the device manager. I think this may be related to the system interrupts.

    Re-installing the audio driver didn't help. Any suggestions on how I can get my mic back?

    In the Device Manager, if you ask it to scan for changes, does the audio device still not show up?

    It doesn't show up. Very strange. I remember seeing a mic in the audio settings page at once point. Don't recall disabling it anywhere.
