    Will 16v Kill My SB?

    Hi what makes you think 16V will be faster than 12V? I reckon the output current of your luggage bag is important in determining charge rate. Does the luggage bag battery pack have a current limiting device? The dc-converters in the Surface which manage the charging of the individual Li-ion...

    Best external monitor resolution

    Mike I think with the options I listed you'll certainly have a better user experience than what you have now. If there is a Best Buy or similar retailer near you, you could always bring your laptop along and ask the sales rep to plug into various monitors to see how it works "out of the box"...

    Best external monitor resolution

    :Mike, SB stands for SurfaceBook. When I say get a monitor to match, it is matching the dpi, not the resolution so you don't have to tweak things. Basically you want the effective pixel size on one monitor to match the pixel size on the other monitor. The number of pixels matters far less. If...

    Best external monitor resolution

    Hi Mike, great question. The screen resolution is actually not very relevant at all. To make a good choice here, it is everything but the resolution that is important.

    Aftermarket docking station

    Hi here is a write up I did a while back comparing several docking options: Multi-monitor docking with Surface Pro 3/4 and Lenovo Yoga 3 Pro The Plugable docks worked quite well in the lab with no visible mouse delay. But the MS docks are clearly the best with a single connector.

    Surface Book aspect ratio beats competition

    Agreed. I love the 3:2 aspect ratio. 16:10 on the desktop works for me as well. I guess since I have three of those monitors that makes it 48:10. Extreme widescreen lol.

    Theartiszan, which SB model do you have? I got it working on a SB at work, but there may be some nuances in the drivers depending on the discrete GPU and Intel CPU setup you have. I haven't had a chance to test on all the different models yet. If you can spare the time, would you mind creating...
