Sounds like you need to do a system refresh, RT is usually quite responsive.
Swipe right to open charms menu, then click on Update and Recovery, then Recovery, then choose "Refresh you PC without affecting your files".
Good luck.

Check for dirt in charge port; if dirty try a clean dry toothbrush to clean the contacts.
If still buggy, consider taking to store and see if it charges with sample power supply.

1) No, you are limited to the Windows Store. It is getting better all the time, just be patient and your favorite apps should show up soon.
2) Lowering the screen brightness is one of the best methods of extending your battery's charge.
3) You could use headphones or a bluetooth speaker to get better sound. There isn't much space inside these machines for decent speakers so they aren't ususually very good.

This is on Microsoft. Until more third-parties start developing apps for the device, this will not be fixed.

Have to go with headphones here, the speakers are a known issue that has not yet been solved. It's a hardware problem that won't be fixed on your tablet.

This is a known issue with Touch Cover, go with Type Cover. It costs ten bucks more but is well worth it.

Ask Microsoft if you can return and replace.
