    Which color of signature type cover you prefer?Platinum , Cobalt Blue and Burgundy.Thanks

    I have the platinum for a more professional look; but found it too bland and updated to the poppy colour. I think you made the happy middle with the blue

    What games are you playing on your SP4?

    I tried Fortnite recently on my SP4 i7 256GB 16GB RAM version and it was playable at low settings with framerates in the low 40's. If I played for more than an hour or more I would consider putting into a colder environment or a fan behind it.

    Surface book charger.

    I did the experiment with the Apple 61W USB-C charging adapter and it worked just fine. So whenever stuck you can use a USB-C based charger. However, I was in a BestBuy and there was an open box charger from a SB2 so picked it up

    Gaming on the SB 2 13.5"

    I have played only a handful of games since getting my SB2 13. Overwatch, StarCraft II, deserts of kharak, I know I didn't want to try getting my Battlefield 1 installation on it. I have yet to load up Metro Last light or 2033 to try. Playing older titles (2015 and older) can be a pain since the...

    External monitor resolution problem

    I've only been able to resolve it by converting to the other inputs on the monitor. HDMI works fine on my 1440p monitor but my 1980x1200 monitor requires a VGA DSUB connector. I tried the HDMI and the DL-DVI and couldn't get beyond 1080p. I am also using the Surface Dock. I spent a bunch on...

    Get pro4 or wait for 5

    I just went for an SP4 i7/256/16GB version 2 days ago as an upgrade from my throttling and memory starved SP3 i7/256/8GB. it was working well for the most part and I was holding out for the SP5; but with recent tweets about the lack of an SP5 in 2017 I went for it. Here in Canada it just went on...

    Do you keep your SP3 on mains after full charge?

    When working away at my desk I have it connected to go with a higher brightness and I also like to know that I have a full charge should I be called away and have to be unplugged for most of the day while bouncing from meeting to meeting.

    Screen Protector - Yes or No?

    I went with full Matte Ghost Armor. two main reasons: 1) large clean glass lying in front of you that is likely to get something dropped or slip out of your fingers 2) the glare from the screen is murder in a lot of the different offices I visit an the matte helps a LOT but the sharpness of the...
