Since it's very possible that you might not want the screen to rotate into portrait mode, this video shows you how to disable it.

A very simple video: how does it take to boot the Surface RT from off?

Quick look at browser speed test between the ipad and surface rt. Results aren't good for Microsoft's new tablet I'm afraid.

I made a brief video a week or two back about the HDMI not working on a television as I would expect. Simply put, plug and play on a 720p tv was causing issues. This video has caused much debate so here is a more in depth video.

As this is proving to be a popular topic, I quickly tried some of your suggestions and didn't get very far. Keep them coming!

VGA connection is analog, and is different from HDMI connection (digital). In my experience, you're pretty much limited to 720p and 1080p for HDMI. As mentioned, Metro requires 1024x768 minimum (and 1366x768 for snap). Ask any netbook (1024x600) owner.

The solution would be to either swap out the large display for a 1080p model, or continue using it as an extended (2nd) display.

To move apps between displays (using "extended" display setup), suggest trying Winkey+PgUp/PgDn as mentioned in this link,

There are other relevant key combos here in this complete shortcuts listing, search on "monitor"

Time to eat some humble pie. I'll take 60-80% of the blame for this. HDMI cable was 'apparently' in the wrong port - though I hasten to add the Transformer Prime was always plugged into this port.
