    Battery Life

    Thanks. As I mentioned via edits above, I had picked up a SL2 but returned it for a ThinkPad. Battery life is very good though AR sucks, imo, that is!

    Surface laptop not that popular?

    I have a SP4 (though the battery is far below optimal now after a few years of hard use). It currently serves as my back up machine. I did buy a SL2 recently but returned it after 2 days. My main reason was the alcantara keyboard. Having been a dedicated Surface user over the years, I have found...

    Fascinating! Great that things worked out for you (and your GF). I also had a similar experience with MS recently, but it was about a refund to an OS upgrade. At first, they denied my request. But then I messaged Mr. Nadella on LinkedIn and lo behold! In short order, I got a call from their...

    Anyone else have problems with the i5 SP6 feeezing up every day?

    Have you tried resetting it (which is a pain, I know!)?

    Can you share what exactly happened to your SP4? Thanks

    Just got the Surface Laptop2

    Just got my ThinkPad (X1C6). I would have posted a few pics, but this is a Surface forum!! My SP4 is now doing duty as a back-up machine - usually plugged into the wall given the state of the battery.

    Just got the Surface Laptop2

    Well, I use the SP4 (with the KB) - on an average - for about 7-8 hours a day...everyday. I also personally prefer the 3:2 AR. The SL2 also had a nice AR but I have since returned it. I have opted to go with the ThinkPad X1 Carbon (Gen 6) - yet to receive it though. Fingers crossed though I have...

    Just got the Surface Laptop2 I am having second thoughts about this laptop. Why? Because of the keyboard. While the typing experience is excellent, the place where my wrists sit while typing will likely wear out. I am saying this based on my experience with the SP keyboards. I have had 3 SP KBs. One was the...

    Just got the Surface Laptop2

    Hi...just wanted to know what was/ is your battery life experience with the SL2? Today, was/ is my first day in the wild and 2nd day of ownership. Right now it is just past 3.30PM at my end and the battery stands at 34%. I started working from 8.30AM. I have been using 3 Word documents...

    Just got the Surface Laptop2

    Hi all... New device for me! Just picked up the black version of the Surface laptop 2. Change for me as I have been using the Surface Pro since gen 3 and the RT series prior to that. Back with a laptop after a long time. The keyboard feels quite nice though its a change for sure. The black...

    My SP6 struggles with the absolute basics...

    You could try resetting the SP6 (painful exercise, IMO, but sometimes the only option). Alternatively, you could try reinstalling the apps (Office/ Outlook in your case - lesser painful option). Also, are you syncing to OneDrive? And, is it a new machine? If yes to both, then it may be indexing/...

    Battery Life

    Hi All... Considering that my SP4 is having battery issues, I am seriously thinking about picking up the SP6 (i5/ 256) within the next few days or so. I wanted to know what has been your experience with the SP6 battery life. Battery life is important to me as I travel (sometimes) and work...
