    Isn't it a reason you bought the version with dGPU?

    What will you get instead?

    I am from rMBP 15 as well. I have SP3 i7/8gb/256 that I didn't use much, I sold it last week thinking about picking SB up. But for the money, I decided to picked up iMac 27" 5k at same price instead.

    To SB or Not To SB?

    I was really questioning about the SB hinge at the beginning. After I went back to BestBuy and played around with it some more, including pressured test around the hinge while closing. The dawn thing is very rigid and sturdily strong. With that said, I am a little less worry now. Dispike...

    Love everything about surface book, but not the hinge!

    I want to buy this SB as well. I just sold my SP3. I will have to go back to BestBuy and do some pressure test while closing. I hope they don't yield at me.

    Love everything about surface book, but not the hinge!

    The hinge itself looks cool. It is the gap in between that I am not too keen with. I feel like it is a weakest link. Maybe I am just worry about nothing.

    I might just wait for SFB 2 and hoping the hinge will get redesign.

    Love everything about surface book, but not the hinge!

    I currently own the SP3. I played around with surface book at BestBuy and I really like it. Like it enough to dump my SP3. I don't like the hinge design. I feel like this will break off the first few days in the backpack. The panel and keyboard are not flushed. This really prevent me from...

    High CPU Usage and no Internet Connection

    I will say, if you decided to upgrade back to Win 10, be sure to perform all windows update in addition to disabling apps from running in background. Could it be that update is in progress? Oher than that, I am pretty happy with Win 10.

    High CPU Usage and no Internet Connection

    Other also suggesting disabling the indexing. You can look at that as well. Not sure if downgrade and upgrade will do the trick though...

    High CPU Usage and no Internet Connection

    The high CPU usage and fan constantly on were my issue after upgraded to Win 10. I suggested you go in to All settings, Privacy, background apps. I would disallow all apps that you don't care about from running in the background. That should take care of the CPU issue. It did for me. My CPU...

    anyone elses' WIFI dropping in w10?

    Often time, it has to do with the radio channel in your wireless router. I know, you said things were working and other devices are fine. I ran into this similar issue in the past. The simple change in radio channel might just do the trick. for 2.4ghz 1. 6, or 11 are the best. But you will...

    SP3 fan is always on after upgrade to Win 10.

    I am seeing the Edge is consuming around 250-400MB per tab, I guess it depends on the tab content. I think other Browser sort of the same, but I don't remember exact memory consumption.

    SP3 fan is always on after upgrade to Win 10.

    In win 8.1 and the way I had it. My SF3 is operated normally, meaning fan, processes, load, etc... were normal and nothing to be alarm. With that said, after upgraded to Win 10. My SF3 with no apps open(well, discounting the background process), the load was always hover at 35-40% and CPU at...

    SP3 fan is always on after upgrade to Win 10.

    Thanks, disabled all. I will see if that would help. Update: it does not look like disabling index feature help. Fan is still going Update 2: I believe, I have eliminated the issue. It appeared to be one of the previously installed apps. I disallowed them all from running in the background. I...
