I was looking at the specs for the SP3, and the Storage section seems a bit strange.
The 64GB has > 36GB of usable space, so 28GB for OS.
The 128GB has > 96GB of usable space, so 32GB for OS.
The 256GB has > 211GB of usable space, so 45GB for OS.
The 512GB has > 450GB of usable space, so 62GB for OS.
Were is all that extra space going?
Last month, I was working on an Excel file that contains about 0.7 million VLOOKUP() formulas over 4000 and 48000 rows ranges. Opening on my machine takes over 2 hours with 100% CPU usage and any editing was painfully slow. Such operation can easily suck up the power of your server. (In the end I rewrite the file to use VBA instead and the calculation completed within 5 seconds.)
Make sure that calculation options is set to manual, if you are making changes to data related to vlookups. I can't underestimate the importance of this.
@Bass: I wish someone would figure out how to make a trackpad work right in Windows. Apple has a great trackpad, but it just doesn't work on a Mac running Windows.
I'm not sure what it is, but there seems to be something fundamentally wrong with Windows, in regards to trackpads.
RDP seems to work well enough. Although, I haven't tried parallels, I would image that it wouldn't mess with native experience.
