    What's a normal brand new Battery Test Report?

    This response is purely opinion based because I have absolutely no idea what they actually do but I would imagine that the unit is charged multiple times and booted before being packaged and shipped especially for installing the OS and also for quality control? Again, I have no idea what goes...

    4 GB RAM SP4

    Update: So I started out with the 4GB and essentially spent 2 weeks trialing the device and while it was absolutely excellent for most portable purposes, I noticed that when I was using dual monitors with multiple apps open - invariably my RAM usage would be at LEAST 90% and I found myself...

    SP4 OS Flawed?

    I used the recovery image, had to run software update before the touch screen and surface pen would work but since then it's worked beautifully although I made sure to switch over to 'hibernate' when I hit the power button or 'close the lid' this solved the screen being on perpetually during sleep

    Is a Surface Pro 4 a good solution for my situation?

    Haven't tried gaming but it struggled from a RAM perspective using duOS that's the android emulator. Maxed out my RAM. But I would imagine if you have nothing else open, gaming would be fine. But also if you have an Xbox one, I haven't yet tried it but you can stream games directly to your...

    4 GB RAM SP4

    Just as a bit of an update, I went with the 4 GB Model...very smooth but I have run into problems running DuOS android emulator. I essentially max out my RAM when I use this - and its what I had expected. It's not essential so definitely not a deal breaker. Perhaps I'll regret my decision to...

    Solved Recovery Boot Loop

    I'm using this forum on tapatalk, is there a way to mark it as solved through the app? Or do I add it to the title of the thread?

    Solved Recovery Boot Loop

    Yes that was it, after I installed updates and firmware it was fixed. Back in business! Also got my type cover, this device is so far very slick, starting to get re-acquainted with windows. Been using a Mac since Windows Vista lol, it has been a while. Excited for a new experience!

    Solved Recovery Boot Loop

    Yeah I have started downloading the recovery image already. How large of a USB stick do I need? 8 GB or do I really need the 16? Oh and really glad the download source is giving me 50 kbps -.- Frustrated, was really excited to get my SP4

    Solved Recovery Boot Loop

    Well it took all of 1 hour for my microsoft surface to be stuck in a boot loop. I messed up some of my setup so I decided to just wipe the device and start over. The device got stuck at 10% installation of windows 10...I shut off the device because it was hanging and now of course since the...

    4 GB RAM SP4

    Thanks for your reply! This is definitely what I was looking for...I guess my hope is that the 4 GB lasts me throughout the next 3 to 4 years although I don't anticipate things making that big of a jump as far as RAM demands. And yes I have already priced out the discount. Unfortunately that...

    4 GB RAM SP4

    Thanks for your input. I was thinking getting a SP3 might be the better buy, however I think I might be too drawn to the newer hardware especially since I likely won't be upgrading for another 3 to 4 years, which would also argue for higher RAM.

    4 GB RAM SP4

    I will very soon be in the market for a new surface pro 4 and I need to know how well the 4 GB performs with Windows 10. I plan to primarily use the SP4 in tablet mode (which I assume will be excellent with 4 GB of RAM) but really want to know when using it in PC mode how well it performs. 1. I...
