    [PRICE REDUCED] FS: Surface Book 2 15" i7 GTX 1060 512GB 16GB w/ loads of FREE Accessories!

    I've had the SB2 for a few months now, and realized this machine is just not for me. There's nothing wrong with it, it's just that I can't escape the Apple ecosystem and I'm returning back to the dark side. For some details, the machine itself is immaculate. I spray it down daily with a...

    Surface Book 2 and Airpods

    Tried that. The auto disconnect and reconnect intervals have decreased, but the connection range and interference is the same.

    Surface Dock can't even charge my iPhone

    How weak and pathetic is this dock? I only have an iPhone SE with the smallest battery in current smartphones, and it can't even hold a consistent charge. The phone is constantly going in and out of charge which triggers the Windows alert sound of a peripheral being connected/disconnected...

    SB2 not connecting to external monitor.

    This is amazing. Thank you very much! After it worked, I just realized I wasted all that money when all I needed was a USB-C to HDMI cable. LOL. Do you also know by any chance if any of those connections will actually give you a better picture compared to the others?

    SB2 not connecting to external monitor.

    So here is the setup. I've been using a 2015 MBP and it connects fine to an LG TV that I have via MiniDisplay - HDMI or just a regular HDMI cable. I used the same mini display - hdmi cable from the SB2 to the LGTV, but the TV says there's no signal. So after some googling it could be that the...

    Surface Book 2 and Airpods

    Is anyone having connectivity issues with this combo? I have it paired with my iPhone SE as well as my Surface Book 2. The issues I have are after it's been paired with my SB2, and choose the audio source back to my phone, the SB2 would automatically connect again. If I disconnect from my...

    YouTube on Chrome issues

    Not sure if there is a fix for this, but when I'm watching YouTube on Chrome, and when the video controls show up on the video, the entire video lights up more than the original video, then when the controls fade away, the brightness of the video returns to normal. This happens both times when...

    Using the SP3 as an external monitor

    I know how to connect the SP3 to an external monitor, but how about the other way around? Is it possible to use the surface as THE external monitor, and not as the main computer outputting the signal to an external monitor? I have searched but came up with no luck. Thanks!

    turns on in bag during sleep??

    I've been putting it in my bag pen side up, because i have noticed the pen and surface rub and scratch each other to the point where I'd have residue on the type cover. I'm not sure how a bigger bag helps? Hmm. Interesting. I'll deactivate it and see how that changes.

    15" Macbook Pro (mid 2015) vs. Surfacebook?

    Yes I believe so. After watching a few YouTube videos, it seems that the MBP15 can play games a bit better with slightly higher frame rates and higher graphics settings. I'm looking at both models because I do like the all in one type of machine. I'm not a serious gamer, but would like at least...

    turns on in bag during sleep??

    I can't seem to figure out why it does this. I put it to sleep, then stare at it for a few seconds to make sure that it won't turn back on. Then I put in my bag, go somewhere, pull it out, and it's burning hot with the screen on. I travel with it in a sleeve and made sure that the keyboard...

    setting up Cortana all the time after reboot???

    Why the heck does Cortana keep asking me to set up Cortana every time I reboot??? When I tap on the "Search the web and Windows" section it always starts with "Welcome back! Let's pick up where you left off" Win 10 bug or am I doing something wrong? I'm using a Surface Pro 3. Also sometimes...
