    Welcome to the forum! Are you buying the SB to go alongside your sP3, or have you decided that one form factor has won you over? I keep being tempted by the SB, but the tablets battery life and lack of kickstand are the deal breaker for me alas.

    thanks for your reply! well, just like you, I made a long time to think whether it is necessory for me to buy SB. As you said, tablets battery life has only 2 hours.It's enough for me to watch an episode of a TV play during the lunch time. If I need more time on the clipboard, I will turn it over with the keyboard connected, and stand my SB just like the shape of "__\" or "/\" when there is not enough space for my SB.
    Then the lack of kickstand. I don't think it's a good idea to keep the keyboard between you and the screen when you have lots of work with your pen.When I have to write or draw something or watch something I would use tone of the next things:
    1、 https://www.amazon.com/MoKo-Foldabl...coding=UTF8&psc=1&refRID=YHVQAWR1EZKCPP3A5YGV
    2、 https://www.amazon.com/TechMatte-Mu...qid=1477772730&sr=8-3&keywords=ipad+pro+stand
    3、 https://www.amazon.com/Cable-Matter...&qid=1477772649&sr=8-4&keywords=surface+stand
    Hope my first reply would help you!

    P.S. All above was what i thought because I have not received my SB yet. Glad to discuss!

    That's great, SB can stand with charging it . And I have a question about the stand: Can you keep steady when you write something at the top left coner of the screen?

    There is some wobble when you write in the top corners of the screen.

    Thank you, Bro. I'm trying to find out a solution to make the clipboard have the same writing experience like SP3 or SP4. That's a little bit hard.

    The Surface Book works very well with the keyboard turned backwards. A very nice stand.

    Even when I write something at this position the SB can stay steady? That would be great!

    My Surface Book is steady for normal finger and pen use on the clipboard, when on the hinge. The base unit is heavy, and the hinge even wraps slightly around the rounded clipboard corners.
