    New to SP4

    I was basically in the same boat as you. I too decided to move from a mac to the surface, it's not the easiest, in fact, I find myself using the sp4 less and less simply because i know mac quite well. I use this bad boy : http://tldr.ly/rWCB for storage, it's cheap, and it's always done what i...

    3 Minute Battery Life

    The SP4 will be more useful to you than the SP3 was. Although, the SP3 technically had a larger battery. to get 3 years out of it is " okay ". However I noticed you only had 16 cycles, was the device recently re-installed back to factory settings ? Or did you just leave it plugged in most of...

    3 Minute Battery Life

    No , replacing the battery is not an option. It CAN be done, but you won't be able to do it. a microsoft repair center should / might be able to do it.

    3 Minute Battery Life

    Warranty exchange, which obviously you can't even do that. At this point, do a full restore on the device, and ensure it's up to date. If none of that works, you're likely just looking at a bad battery. How many charging cycles do you have on it ? have you already ran a battery report ? Open cmd...

    3 Minute Battery Life

    Once you install the new drivers, you're basically resetting the meter. MS has the ability , through software, to turn off the machine, even if it's not actually dead. However, their is no real way to test that theory. At this point, I'll be the bearer of bad news, either A, do a full system...

    3 Minute Battery Life

    Three things that need to happen here. Firstly, go into the device manager, and uninstall the battery drivers. Then, see if you get more than 3 minutes ( don't reboot yet ), then, once you confirm you DID get more than 3 minutes, reboot the device, the drivers will re install. That should fix...

    Please tell me I need not worry

    i won't try to say I know, because I don't. However, I do know with the SP4, that's not the case. Many people from the 1st month of builds had fewer issues, the people in the " mid " range of the launch, had more issues, and th epeople with the ones from jan / feb were less prone to additional...

    New one...

    it's an issue going around after the recent updates. No real solution in sight. You can uninstall the drivers for it, then restart the device, and let them re-install, that may help.

    Please tell me I need not worry

    refurbs come with a lot number, what is the lot number on the box ( when you get it ), itll tell you when it was made. They are refurbs, but this doesn't mean they were broken. Any time a place like best buy takes an exchange, they are not allowed to re-sell it, even as open box, they must send...

    Is a Surface Pro 4 a good solution for my situation?

    That lenovo is a solid choice, for sure, the keys also recess when in tablet mode, to avoid any potential button smashing, early key degeneration. the Dell XSP12 is also a good competitor. The Lenovo however, is still a heavier, 2-in-1 with a non detachable screen. The Surfacepro 4 is still in a...

    Terrible Build quality II: magnesium alloy body

    Magnesium needs to be treated with care. Compromises were made, and innovations were created. Stop blaming MS and spend a few minutes watching where you place your thousand dollar toys :)

    Terrible Build quality II: magnesium alloy body

    Thanks! I do like me some likes. I initially did id simply because the Iphone is slippery as hell, and I dont' want a case. I know this is like a case, but its not. It still feels like a thin awesome device. To answer your questions, it looks like a pro did it because that's my 6th try :) . I...
