    Surface Pro 3 - best computer I've owned

    I love the SP3. I still use it, but have since gotten a Macbook Air 2014 that I relegated as my main machine. I use the SP3 now more portable, like an iPad. I've had it for about 2.5 years now and love it. Still has a great screen and while the fans turn on and the back gets hot, I still get a...

    Surface Pro 3/4 Dock (brick): Worth it?

    I am in need of a dock that has ethernet and multiple monitor outputs (2 monitors). Doesn't have to be 4K or even greater than 1080p. I hear mixed reviews on the Surface Pro dock. Is it worth getting and has anyone had no problems with it?

    My Review

    I've had my SP3 for 1.5 years (2 years in April 2017) and I love it! Haven't had any hardware issues to speak of (besides the MicroSD sometimes unmounting at times). I have my 6.5 year old laptop that I use for work and that's still kicking as well. I guess I just have good luck with electronics.

    Worst battery powered device ever, my SP3...

    I got around 4.5.-5 hours. No where near the 8+ hours people on this forum claim, unless they have BT/Wifi disabled and the screen brightness all the way down.

    Battery Wearing for a year

    Now it's showing 0.0% wear. This is based off of Battery Bar Pro. Even when I generated a battery report using: powercfg /batteryreport At command prompt, it shows that the capacity went back up (normal) in the last few months. I don't get it.

    As of today, my battery wear is back down to 4.9% (40,098 of 42,157 mWh). Weird!

    I5 or i7 for lightroom/little games? It's true the throttling problem?

    5.5 hours is standard for SP4. Even SP3 gets the same battery life. Battery hasn't really changed in real world use for a while.

    Battery Wearing for a year

    I have discharged the battery once a month and the wear still happened on the SP3. I can see where exactly it occurred. Started around March/April of this year, so roughly 1.5 years since it was purchased. September 2014, it was registered. I bought it used in April 2015, so I've had it over a...

    FS:Brand New Sealed Surface Book: i7, 512GB SSD, 16GB Ram, dGPU

    I would just put it on Ebay or sell locally. Since you are a new user, it's a huge gamble.

    Dolphin Emulator settings for SP3?

    I tried Skyward Sword and kept getting garbled audio.

    Battery Wearing for a year

    I don't really care anymore, since my 1 year warranty ended September 2015, and I bought it used to begin with, in April 2015.

    Battery Wearing for a year

    Mine appears to only charge up to 97.2% and has degraded a few percentages in the last 4 months. Not a huge deal, and in real world uses, it seems to only have decreased battery time by 25 minutes.

    Battery Wearing for a year

    How do I check what battery you have (brand) and how many cycles? I've had mine since May 2015 (and by then it was already 9 months old (1 year warranty expired September 2015) I use battery bar for % reporting, and it shows 5.4% wear, though I usually always keep it plugged in and sometimes...
