Well, I had my first BSOD after the latest updates. I changed my sleep setting back when so my Surface Book would go into hibernation faster to save on battery drain. Last night it was on with the lid closed for quite a while. Opened the lid to a black screen (hibernation) so tapped the power button and it showed a slightly lighter screen but nothing other than the camera's "red eye." Tried the Windows + P tap, no joy. Tried the power button again then the BSOD came up. It sent its little report off to MS then restarted. I love so many things about the SB, but I'm coming to realize that stability and reliability in a computer are truly essential to those of us that use them for work as well as play. It seems that in our rush to have the latest, coolest thing we sometimes ignore or gloss over this central tenant. We tell ourselves, it will get better. If it does, it takes months and months, and we, in the meantime, pull our hair out in frustration, mumble under our breath or threaten to "throw the thing out the window." What kind of device experience is that? Once it "gets straightened out," (and for some it never really does so they go through the "exchange game") will we use it a few more months before the newest device release is upon us then dump the one we had so we can start the cycle again? I've got until January 15th to return my SB for a refund. As I look at my SB right now on my desk, I really love it as a wonderful laptop/clipboard, but I have to ask myself why do I keep thinking about all the money I have in this thing and all the ways it is unstable and unreliable. Had MS released this beautiful device when it was well and truly tested and ready, I wouldn't be writing this post. I've heard all the rhetoric about early adopters - I've watched this phenomena from the SP1 onward and...that process hasn't improved one bit. I went through all this with my SP3 (and during the year+ I had it, MS fixed and broke again many things) and I'm experiencing the same things again only this time with a $2,000+ SB. After all, everyone of us wants our shiny new wonder device to work correctly right out of the box (I'm not talking about the occasional glitch that nearly every device experiences but rather the tidal wave of multiple glitches and instability most seem to experience). I'm thinking a lot more about stability and reliability. Pondering what to do with my SB...I think I know the answer, but I really hate the solution.
