    The only downside of an SP8 with LTE is that I am worried of getting the bright spots again, that I currently have on my SP2017 Advanced LTE.

    I think the jump from SP8 to SP9 is less big than the jump from SPX (SQ2) to SP9 (SQ3). For one from LTE to 5G. And the additional options are great. If I were to go for the Intel version, I think I would also opt for the SP8. For example the i5/256/8 version of the SP8 is € 1039,- whereas the...

    What type of backups are you referring to? I would say OneDrive

    Backlight bleed and bright spots on all devices?

    My Surface Pro is working just fine. It is just the bright spots that appear. Something of which I think it is a design error. I believe these are caused by a combination of heat and slight pressure on the screen (never too much by the way!) that makes internal components touch the backside of...

    Anyone plan to buy Surface Pro 9?

    My SP 2017 runs hot as well. Perhaps I should have look at a SP X and use that as a stepping stone towards a SP9. Just received my bonus yesterday....so something should be possible ;) However... most likely my wife will say:"Why do you need a new one? You have a tablet, right?" Aaaaand...

    Backlight bleed and bright spots on all devices?

    Getting back a little bit to my initial issue. I held on to my current SP 2017 Advanced LTE. I feel it is due to the fact that it can be running quite hot every now and then. The spots appear in exactly the same area on each and every device. They get worse over time and never disappear. The SP...

    Anyone plan to buy Surface Pro 9?

    Thanks for replying! And thanks for testing Power BI I noticed you have a second gen Surface Pro X as well. How does that stack up to the rest? I really like the SP X/8 and onwards design compared to the SP3-SP7 design. But I don't think I already have need for a SP9 (ARM) I mostly use my SP...

    Anyone plan to buy Surface Pro 9?

    This is what I understood from the CNET review as well: a new ARM based SP9 is comparable to a SP8. I assume they compared it to a SP8 i5, 8GB, 256GB, which seems to be somewhat mid range. Does Microsoft Power BI desktop run on this device? Or on the SP9 for that matter? The last years, I've...

    Anyone plan to buy Surface Pro 9?

    I'm thinking of replacing my Surface Pro 2017 Advanced LTE with the 5G version. But first I want to see what people's experience is with the non x86 Perhaps I should buy a (second hand) Surface Pro X first.

    Immersed VR on SP6?

    Thanks! Will check it out. I was just referring to metaverse that is being setup. I think this is connected to using VR for stuff like Teams etc. Really curious as to how the mixed reality part works.

    Immersed VR on SP6?

    Noooo, The Netherlands are quite modern. It is just my company that didn't roll out this feature to The Netherlands yet

    Immersed VR on SP6?

    Great to hear about these things! I work at a huge global company and I know we're working on implementing the metaverse as well. Unfortunately it hasn't been rolled out to the Netherlands yet. And a lot of our clients don't support this. So I would then only be using it on the company issued...

    GPS working or not?

    That is working, but it is not nearly as precise as a native app on Android
