Can you perhaps give a link or two? I want to try it out. What doesn't work for me in Flash sometimes is double click (a flash-based website sometimes ask you to use a slider to choose a video) on some websites I can use double click to access the slider, on some sites I need to use the mouse. But any old mouse seems to work. Even the ones with wireless USB dongle (Logitech Anywhere in my case).
Just entering the second week of a business trip to South East Asia using only the Surface RT with Touch keyboard and my Android phone. Generally I am really pleased except for a few issues:
1.)Can't send files in Skype -- sure this will be resolved pretty soon, but it is a pain. Skype calls do work really well, though. No file transfer for IM+ either. So we are using e-mail for sending files now.
2.)Typing is still a learning experience. Strangely enough it is not because the keys are so flat --- that doesn't seem to bother me at all --- but because the spacing seems to be slightly off and I kept hitting the wrong keys when I wasn't looking while typing. But by now I am doing quite well.
3.)Text can be quite small, especially when using split windows. But using an external monitor I could pretty much get away with just using the Surface for most everything. The only time I had to use another PC was when I forgot the password of my travel router (no ethernet port, of course -- that would happen with many laptops these days).
4.)I had forgotten to download some additional video playing apps and was stuck with an incompatible format -- my phone helped me out that time. Would have been nice to have a wide compatibility out of the box.
