    What airline are you flying that you don't have outlets on an international flight? If you're flying 15 hours you're probably on a 777LR or an A380, both of which have outlets.

    For the stream over network functionality to work, the TV must support DLNA. Make sure both devices are connected to the same network. The TV will then appear on the devices section which you can them stream video to.

    Not all seats have outlets (Delta and AF). Plus i am the proud owner of a 17" laptop, so it is very difficult to get that set up on the dinner tray. Once I get my Pro/Kupa, then my flights might start to get more productive.

    What is it that the iPad isn't doing for you ? iPad does a lot more than most people give it credit for. My major complaint is that it needs 'Big Boy ' Excel. Numbers for the iPad has gotten better, but it's still a long way off. Heck, I would even settle for the RT version of Excel.

    So when you write it by hand, it converts it to typed text ? If so, how accurate is it ?

    Yes, someone that wants to suppliment there laptop or desktop, or those that don't need or want a full bore system. Remember, even though the Surface Pro should run your desktop apps and the OS was designed for touch, it doesn't mean the desktop app was designed for touch. Surface RT apps should be designed from the get go as touch apps. Then again, YMMV.

    Not all seats. :(

    Yep, I quit drinking coffee, stay up all night, ect. But sleep time still depends on your time of flight, seat, and the behaviors and body sizes of the other passengers. If you're sitting in an aisle seat, it's harder to sleep with someone bumping you every 30 to 60 seconds because they don't understand how to walk down an aisle.

    Question to those that own one, is it a dual or quad core i5 ? How does the performance compare to a relatively new Latitude with a quad core i5 ? I also see it mentions a USB 3.0 port. Is it only one ? I am required to use a USB license key and another USB interface cable.

    its a dual core i5, one USB 3.0 and as for the comparison, I haven't a clue

    Yep, I think you're right. Resource Monitor led me to believe my laptop (company laptop, I didn't buy it) was quad core, but I ran CPU Z, it shows 2430, two cores, four threads. Intel's website confirms it.

    @Mr. Willie: When you write with the pen into the pen board (keyboard option), it converts it to type. It works with script or cursive. It is EXTREMELY accurate! I have horrible hand writing, and it only misses when I miss, and sometimes it corrects my mistakes for me. FYI, you can just strike through to erase.

    Wrong!

    Us little folk can't afford First Class International Flights, and not everyone can sleep sitting up. So it is not about "doing it wrong", it is just about how everyone is different - sort of like smartphone OS users.

    I was disturbed by the battery life on the Pro, but when I realized that the Pro could replace my laptop. I don't get but 2-3 hours of battery life on my laptop, so 4-5 hours is much better. If I am at my desk, It will probably be plugged in anyway..

    I'm psyched for you all I'm glad you guys are having great times with your purchases. My buddy just got the pro yesterday and is loving that he can run minecraft on it and doesn't need a Bluetooth dongle and can use his Xbox controller to play :) btw his laptop and Bluetooth dongle belong to me now and we can both play minecraft together.

    No, you have to get that yourself, just like any other Windows 8 Pro machine (laptop or desktop)

    If you sign up for Office365($99 per year), you can install the full version of office 2013 on 5 different machines.

    If you really want to catch up on the last flight's movies, I bet you are talking about the entertainment they have in flight.
    They have lots of movies.

    Yeah, it really funny.
    Before the tablets where there, in flight:
    --- You would read book, sleep, rest, and land fresh and ready for business / recreation.

    After the tablets, during flight:
    --- You keep yourself awake with that LCD light on your eyes, watch movies / cartoons, play games and land really tired to crash at the hotel room.
