    Lump under Winodws logo? - New SP2

    That is weird. I wonder if it is heat related. I think my SP2 got hot and some of the glue around the bezeling has left little boogers on my screen. The one I have is a refurb I think. I asked about the screen boogers after getting it, but they never replied.

    Terrible battery life

    funny, everyone keeps asking about hyper-v, I don't have any virtualization running on this. I'm pretty conservative about what I install on my surface so the only things that happen at start up are things that I "need"; vpn for work, creative cloud, scansnap manager, and the adobe updater.

    Dell P2715Q on my SP2

    I couldn't get 30hz working with hdmi. Anyhow, I have a dell sp2309 connected via a USB adapter. I tried dasy chaining with a dp to hdmi cable. I'm not sure how that works so Im not surprised it didn't work. I would like to bring the usb adapter to work if I could.

    My SP2 has around 7400mW drain on Battery Bar Pro. Battery life is bad on my SP2

    Current estimate of battery life based on all observed drains since OS install Since OS install 3:04:27 mind you, I have the power cover on 80% of the time. When I have concerts/weddings I definitely have the Power Cover. I also make sure to turn it completely off. My Surface continually wakes...

    Dell P2715Q on my SP2

    now, I was about to create a profile for 50hz. once I rebooted, I was able to connect. This rules. Funny, it's over the max resolution for remote desktops to my work computer, but I'm loving this. thank you so much

    Terrible battery life

    it goes up and down. at work to day It mostly was about 8% 1.13ghz. after I removed chrome, my battery life did go up... but basically makes my surface useless as most stuff I do is through chrome.

    Terrible battery life

    SP4 may have NO Ports, Zero, None.

    So I have to carry around a CF card reader AND a wireless hub thing? not-going-to-do-it.

    SP4 may have NO Ports, Zero, None.

    that would really suck for me. After I shoot a wedding or a concert, I will find it hard to plug my card reader into my SP.

    SP4 may have NO Ports, Zero, None.

    enterprise also don't like change and enterprise is just finally accepting the SP as a valid line up. Companies that I know are finally starting to give them out to employees. If they update the dock again... they are going to lose people. I already hate the fact that if I upgrade, I will have...

    SP4 may have NO Ports, Zero, None.

    that doesn't make any sense. The point of a dock is having something that hold your surface up so you can see the face of it with xxx ports, etc in the back. imagine having to carry some other piece of crap around that somehow connects from the mDP to the USB port to wirelessly connect to the...

    Terrible battery life

    uninstalled chrome. letting it basically just sit on my desk at 75% screen brightness. It's funny cause my hp envy from 2011 gets the same battery life as the surface when I'm at my radio station, but the surface is doing practically nothing and the hp envy is running Traktor, eclipse...

    SP4 may have NO Ports, Zero, None.

    nope, they already said that the SP4 will work with all SP3 accessories. which includes that dock. http://www.pcworld.com/article/2824534/microsoft-pledges-commitment-to-surface-line-and-surface-pro-3-accessories.html

    Dell P2715Q on my SP2

    jut in case, I ordered a mDP to mDP cable. Let's see if that does it. At some point, I'm going to get a SP3 (or SP4), but I'm not swimming in cash so I figure wait.

    Dell P2715Q on my SP2
