Sitting in the Las Vegas airport

And attempting to work on migrating C through Z of the blog content and I gotta say the one drawback of the surface device is the lack of a static work area.  A traditional laptop has a more firm keyboard that one can balance on your laptop, a surface device is much more unstable.

Have any of the readers of this blog that have found  your way to the new blog site that use surface’s for travel, have you had issues whereby the unit works great on a desktop, but if you are sitting in a airport seat,  and trying to use the keyboard with the unit, it flops over?

Maybe I need a stiffer set of muscles in my leg to balance the keyboard on?

Blog migration status:  Images still broken, categories a disaster, still migrating content, sitting in the Las Vegas airport and about to fall asleep waiting for my airplane…..

  1. The newer pro type covers for the Pro 3 should have an extra lip/hinge/flap that can fold up towards the screen — are you finding that doesn’t help with the stability while in lap?

    Imagine if you will that the keyboard is on your lap and it’s not a solid plastic connected to a screen, but a slightly lightweight ‘snap’ connected to a tablet screen. Granted I have a surface 2 not a 3 but I find on the 2 I have a very hard time working when my only work surface is my lap. The base keyboard needs to be heavier.
