    Surface Pro X limited software functionality due to the cpu make it not worth the hype

    I think most reviewers did a bad job and didn't understand what they were reviewing. The SPX is everything I want. It runs WSL2, docker, office, firefox, chromium all ARM64. I get 10 hours battery life easy, and decent performance and a beautiful screen. It is literally what I wanted the...

    Surface Pro X limited software functionality due to the cpu make it not worth the hype

    Oh yeah it might work. I haven't gone on the fast ring to grab wsl2 so I can't test, but assuming you have wsl2 I dont see why it wouldn't work considering docker works fine. I would love to have wsl2 for docker support now. I m just worried about stability so I haven't switched to it. I hear...

    Can we get a pro x forum?

    It would be great to have a forum just for this device since its so new and different. I have been looking for a place to talk about software for it but there isn't s great spot on the internet dedicated to discussing it yet. I think this website would be a great spot todo so on.

    when I detach and reattach my clipboard my battery goes from charged to 85%?

    when my clipboard on my SB2 is attached to the keyboard it says 100% charged on both batteries. But if I detach the clipboard and immediately reattach then the battery reports as 85% and says it will take 30 minutes to charge. I can do this over and over. As soon as it reaches 100% charged I...

    fans at max when idle

    https://i.imgur.com/rY1zQkE.png here's a picture. CPU usage is 3% during this. GPU is 0% and iGPU is 1%. My fans are on MAX in high performance and are noticeably loud in high performance. This is my second SB2 (my first one stopped being able to charge, so MS replaced it). I noticed too how...

    Is this amount of battery wear a lot for just 12 cycles?

    Yeah I don't know :( I took it in to the MS store though anyway since I was having a lot of trouble getting it to charge. They ran a diagnostic tool on it and it failed the one related to power/battery or something. I take impeccable care of my electronics and I can't think of what I did (if...

    Never-ending myriad of bugs

    I've owned the SP2, SP3, SP4 and SB2 as well as a ton of iMac and MacBooks. To Microsoft's credit the Surface has matured stability wise over the years, but my opinion (unpopular here I'm sure) is that if you want something more stable and reliable, then just buy a MacBook with MacOS. I put up...

    Is this amount of battery wear a lot for just 12 cycles?

    Sometimes my SB2 wont charge, and I'm trying to figure out of the problem is that the battery is faulty: https://i.imgur.com/nusrlue.png It looks like I've had 12 charge cycles but the battery has worn 8%. The device is maybe 4 months old.

    SB2 plugged in, not charging

    I just checked mine and I have no idea what to make of it. Apparently I'm at 12 cycles and have lost 2k from the clipboard, but the base is 1k over capacity: https://i.imgur.com/nusrlue.png maybe there's some margin of error with these reports, or not all batteries are created equally? Now...

    SB2 plugged in, not charging

    I think the full clean shut down might have fixed it, I also put it into the BIOS screen, and for good measure updated windows. After updating it started charging again. Abit worried it will break again but I'll see!

    SB2 plugged in, not charging

    The other day my surface started saying "plugged in, not charging" and now will not charge. Things I have tried to fix it are: 1. re-installing windows 2. trying a usb-c power source 3. charging the clipboard directly 4. tee-pee mode + base & then trying to charge 5. turning off and on 6...

    can anyone on 1803 post a picture of all the updates they have installed on their sb2?

    I'm worried I'm missing some, because I reverted 1803 and it never showed up for me again. I've since manually re-installed it but now I want to make sure that I'm not somehow missing other updates as well. The only ones I have after installing 1803 are:

    games crash due to graphics card disconnecting mid game? DXGI_ERROR_DEVICE_REMOVED

    Sadly the registry fix did not work. I also can't find other surface book owners who have the same problem and I assume there are others who play fortnite. Maybe it's a hardware problem with my surface and I should ask Microsoft for an exchange...
