    MS Surface Pro (2017) with LTE Release date?

    I have been searching to replace my SP3 with the SP2017 with LTE. They were available for a few days and then removed from the website. One affiliate site says they will be ready for sale in Spring 2018? Anyone have any inside information as to when these LTE devices will come out?

    SP3 and WIN10 Creators Update

    So, the Fall Creators update was released like 2 weeks ago. I heard that newer machines would get the download first. I check for updates every day and the update is still not ready for me. Did you guys get the update automatically or did you have to manually update?

    SP3 user looking to SP5

    So far the information online shows that the new SP5 will in fact use the Kaby Lake Processors and it will retain the SP3/SP4 charger or dock plug. Thats good for me since I have a SP3 and a SP4 dock and a charger and a car charger. If it wasn't for the poor battery quality of the SP3, I would...

    So, when I am using the SP3 as just a tablet...... and I touch the keyboard icon on the lower right corner it gives me the keyboard. If I have used the pen at all instead of the keyboard, it brings up a writing line to hand write instead of keyboard. Does anyone know how to change this or...

    Battery Maintenance.....what's best?

    My SP3 has about a 4% battery wear level after about 6 months use (hard to say because my current SP3 is a refurb). Anyway, I am concerned that the battery life already can go pretty quickly, and if I get the battery wear level to 10 or 15% which I guess could happen in a couple years, what's...

    Surface Pen.....How's it working for ya?

    I have an SP3 i7 256GB and when I opened it and fired her up...I tried the pen out. Wow was it accurate. It was literally just like a pen and paper. Then after about a month, it wasn't working as well. For instance if I write the word "Microsoft" in regular letters (not cursive) the M comes...
