The battery from Tim's Surface Laptop is starting to swell. Leo says that indicates that the battery is about to fail. Tim wanted to call in to say that Microsoft's service was fantastic for him.
Dave's wife has a Microsoft Surface Pro and he's concerned that she isn't protected from hackers online. Leo says that Windows 8 has Microsoft Defender built in and the key is to keep it up to date. They will want to update the OS completely as well. If that doesn't solve the issue, then it would be a good idea to do a complete restore.
Chris needs to get a tablet for the work he does writing and proofreading. Leo says that a Windows Surface tablet is probably the best solution for Chris since he needs Microsoft Word and Adobe Reader. The Surface RT comes with Office, and would work just fine for Chris. It's lower powered and won't work with traditional Windows software, though. For that, Leo recommends the Surface Pro, but it doesn't come with office. Leo also recommends the Type keyboard cover.
Charlie wants a tablet, but he also needs a laptop. He's wondering if the Microsoft Surface Pro would be a good solution. Leo says it's a very nice option, and he'll want the 128GB version, which is in short supply. If he orders it from the Microsoft store, he'll get it within a week to ten days. Charlie will also want the type keyboard cover as well.
Microsoft sold out of the Microsoft Surface Pro almost instantly, and now is finally allowing more orders of the 128GB model at store.microsoft.com.
