Slippery when dry

by Volker Weber

Here is a small problem I did not expect. When you prop Surface up on the included stand, it moves around on the table when you touch the screen. At least it does on hard surfaces like a glass table. I never experienced this with the Yoga.

The Touch Cover does not help at all. Even with the Type Cover and its felt backside, that is a problem.

After a few hours with Surface I conclude that Surface is the nicer tablet, when compared with Yoga. As a laptop, Yoga runs rings around Surface. It all depends on your preference. If you want a handheld tablet, that can be used with a keyboard on a table once in a while, Surface is for you. If you want a touchscreen laptop that can be converted into a tablet to be used on the couch, then Yoga is your friend.

I haven't experienced that with my Surface. I wonder if it's the way that you type or something that is putting pressure on the device to move. Weird.

The description is misleading. What I mean is when I am working the touchscreen. Then I am pushing Surface around on the table.

So far I don't like either keyboard. Way too many typos. I want to learn the touch cover, but I am way faster on glass than on the cover. When I am on the desktop I am missing the trackpad. This is so much easier on the Yoga where I can go from one to the other in a split second.

How do you place the cursor precisely anyway? I can do this on Windows Phone, but fail on Windows. On the Yoga I just go into laptop mode if I edit text.
