    Surface screen somewhat yellow!!

    Same thing with mine. Had two now with the same issue. Have you changed the display settings to reduce the red and green/blue balance? That solved the yellow issue but created random flickering of the device.

    Brydge lets you type on the Surface Pro 4 in style - Page 3 Looks very interesting. As my hinge isn't working that great this could be a good alternative.

    Broken Kickstand

    Sad times. The black connector on one side of the kickstand came loose today and came out of the socket. One side is fine, but the other needs fixing or replacing. I'm out of warranty, but wondering if there was any advice on what to do? It's pretty useless without use of the kickstand :/

    Surface Pro 3 and Chrome battery life improvement

    Since the release of Chrome's new update I have found that the battery lasts a lot longer on my SP3. Battery says 8 hours and 25 minutes remaining so far (25% brightness) and I have had Chrome open for an hour. Good news :D

    Surface Pro 3 battery life??

    Yes there are a few threads about it. You may have a Simplo battery and MS is aware of the issue and will provide a software fix which will hopefully fix it :)

    New Owner. A Mistake?

    Yeah go and exchange it and see what happens. Sounds like some weird issues. The chrome commands can be found with google search.
