How to make the most out of Microsoft Surface features

Posted on Tuesday 19th February 2013 at 14:34 PM — by ConnorSephton

The Surface Pro from Microsoft is a ballsy foray by the manufacturer into the Apple-dominated tablet market. There are some intuitive features offered by the device, but making the most out of them can be difficult if you are unfamiliar with Windows 8.

Make sure that you give the device full charging cycles. The Intel processor of the Microsoft Surface is powerful, and the device is lighter because a smaller battery has been inserted under the hood. Because of this, make sure you only charge the tablet once the battery is fully drained, and give it the chance to regain full capacity. This will ensure that you get the five hours of power advertised for longer.

Use USB 3.0 and SkyDrive to get enhanced storage capabilities if you need it. After all, tablets traditionally provide a less expansive hard drive than PCs, and this can be a deterrent for some users. As standard, you can choose between 64GB and 128GB of storage with the Surface Pro, both at price points of $899 and $999 respectively.
