    Just purchased new SB 2 and have question on MS account setup. Should I use the same info as I do for desktop PC’s at home or setup new MS account? +/- of each way.

    thx

    Use your same Microsoft account (email address). You will be amazed at how Windows 10 works with account syncing and OneDrive to set up your new Surface Book 2.

    Just so happens that today I received my second Surface Book 2 15 inch 1TB. That machine is a beauty and I decided to add a second with the same specs. In 20 minutes my SB2 had the wallpaper, OneDrive everything, settings, etc. and I was up and running.

    Congratulations on your premium performance device.

    By the way, I recommend the Tomtoc case (https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01MZ87CGC/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_mL00Db6S2J9JB) which has allowed me to take my SB2, Kindle, iPad, and their cables and chargers around the world a few times. Getting another for my additional SB2.

    What drive is in modern SB2 15" 1TB stock? ( newer revision)
    I reckon the drive write-speed would be a lot faster then older SB2's..
    Am on the fanless version and more or less on old spec, hence no driver update or bios etc.(all from scratch on a 256GB 8gB edition)
    but massive difference from read to write.
    Getting 3250 on read and a tad under 350mbps on write..https://i.imgur.com/T4VtXKu.jpg

    Tell me how you would like me to test or report about that drive, @Jakob Hviid

    Thanks, still learning along with setting up for my preference. Also once win is updated, then doing backup with arconis to my home network cloud.
