    Surface Pro 5 Discussion

    Late to this thread, but damn I can't imagine them releasing anything without an avalanche of bugs. I have owned (and returned) every surface product since the sp2 because of bugs. I sure hope we will see a USB-C/TB3 40gbps port with the option for external GPU. I haven't lost faith yet

    Surface 3 not working on 5Ghz wifi

    I just scooped a S3 up today. My 5ghz speeds are 1/8th of my 2.4ghz speeds..... This is sitting about 10 ft from router. All my other devices are blazing fast on the 5ghz chan. Shrug

    Who's getting one?

    I'll probably have work get me one. I have been through so many different devices in the last couple years... I have a real love/hate relationship with the surface line. I need to take notes and sketch. I will always hate the lack of a clamshell keyboard option. If Microsoft made an addon that...

    New product announcement on the 30th?

    Yea I'm more or less thinking as a consumption device to replace my iPad. When i'm at my desktop/workstation I like having a little device that has music/chat and non work related stuff on it. Sp3 screen is too big for that

    New product announcement on the 30th?

    I'm pretty sure their watch isn't ready for holiday season. I would probably buy a Surface mini for the hell of it.

    SP2 vs SP3 for drawing

    I have owned both and prefer the Wacom over the N-Trig.... Typography for me was much better on the SP2... I didn't have the Sp3 with the latest update however so maybe it's improved...

    A year of issues - a happy ending

    The only thing I love is the trackpad. I have yet to find a Windows laptop with anything close... With that being said... When I say I hate OSX It's buggy... 1) I use and external monitor and my menu bar randomly jumps from one screen to the other (it drives me nuts) 2) The Bluetooth audio...

    Any Happy SP3 users?

    After going through a SP2 and Sp3, I do have a Lenovo Thinkpad Yoga now... With that being said, if they made a thinner version of this with a better screen it would be the perfect device for me. I hate not having a "clamshell" style keyboard/computer combo. Type cover + surface is not lap...

    My first impressions with the sp3 i7, i'm an illustrator.

    I had purchased a SP2 for design work went through hell and a year later got a refund. I picked up a SP3 and hated the N-trig and wasn't willing to deal with all the little bugs again so I just took it back.... Surface is an awesome concept that was riddled with bugs and annoying issues for...

    A year of issues - a happy ending

    It sucks... I absolutely hate using OSX and not having touch on my Macbook. I ended up taking back the Surface Pro 3 and a Surface 2 my girlfriend wanted. Limited Wifi after waking from sleep on both devices and then on her Surface 2 it started opening all websites as the "mobile" versions "I...

    A year of issues - a happy ending

    That's what I mean. I push it rendering in Solid Works. Adhesive gets loose, eventually starts making noise when I grip it or use the pen.

    A year of issues - a happy ending

    I'm sure if I never (pushed) the machine I wouldn't have had the squeaky screen issue. It's not coincidence it happened on 3 different ones. I baby my devices so it wasn't that I was being rough. I have a surface pro 3 right now but i'm debating returning it and just waiting till next year and...

    SP2 Owners: Satisfied or Regret Upgrade to SP3

    I have a SP2 , got a SP3 and returned it and now have a Thinkpad Yoga.... I LOVED the screen res and weight of the SP3 - with that being said, the Surface can never be a laptop replacement for me due to the kickstand/type cover design. If Microsoft ever makes it clamshell style ala Asus t300...
