    Should install anti-virus on Surface Pro 4?

    1 Yes 2 Yes, there's one mentioned in this thread, and a quick forum (or Google) search will give all the info you could want. 3 Yes, but I don't trust it, unless you are a very cautious and discriminating web surfer.

    Scratched my surface book after one week

    I got my SP4 10 minutes ago.... I'm stuck on the boot screen

    Couldn't happen to a nicer guy... :D We expect others to come here to this board with their issues, but yeah it's always a little cringe-worthy when one of US experiences something major like this!! :(:(

    Is Recovery Partition Clean??

    I have a buddy who just got a new XPS 13 but it's from Dell (as opposed to a Signature Edition from the Microsoft Store) so it's got a ton of crapware on it. He wants to do a clean install. It has Windows 10 on it. Do any of you guys know if the recovery partitions on those kinds of devices...

    Surface Connect

    It wouldn't surprise me. It's been a staple on wish lists since SP1.

    Muscle Wire - Removing the Screen

    Completely agree with this. @SeanP, the only way to guarantee that you get a new unit is to completely return your existing one for a refund, pronto. It will be a pain yes, because you will probably have to wait a little bit for new stock to arrive, but then you can be confident you're getting a...

    Day 2 with SB - Uh Oh

    I wouldn't go that far. Everything has issues when it's first released, and no doubt without Panos' passion for the devices to begin with, we wouldn't even have a Surface Pro 3, 4, or Book.

    Forum for Book Owners moving on from SP3?

    I sold my SP1 on eBay. Got a good price for it, and the guy that bought it was really glad to get it, his first MS product. They're not all sketchy... :D (and I buy a ton of stuff eBay as well!) Edit- not to diminish our own Buy/sell/trade forum, as Lee posted above...

    Forbes just quoted you guys on SB Problems - lol

    Definitely some problems, but not too bad. SP3 was the worst, with combined issues with Connected Standby and the horrible Marvel WiFi/BT adapter. I think I'd always expect some issues of a new device at launch, but we also have to keep in mind that this site is partly a hospital, where folks...

    Surface Book aspect ratio beats competition

    I love the 3:2 aspect ratio, and 16:10 is what I use for my desktop monitors.

    I5 versus I7 thoughts

    Just out of curiosity, and maybe I missed something, but why are you replacing your old HP with a Surface? I'm just thinking you could get a similarly spec'd laptop for a lot less than a Book.

    Surface Book is a disappointment.

    Or Microsoft :D Windows Mobile back in the day was KING. Then MS got lazy and complacent and assumed that they'd always be on top.

    Text on SP3 is too small

    Welcome stuka! I've renamed your post to make it more clear what your issue is, and moved it to the right section.
