    Surface Dock and USB C charging

    I was wondering if it was possible to use the Surface Dock while at the same plugging in a USB C charger like the one that works with the Macbook Pro? Would it provide the extra juice while under load and it does work, is that a safe option?

    Heat issues and Undervolting

    After rebooting and running HWMonitor, my CPU temps while just browsing the web seem to be more normal. I'm averaging between 55-65 now.

    Heat issues and Undervolting

    Yes, I just downloaded Intel Power Gadget 3.5 and noticed right off the bat that while sitting at Package Pwr 20-22W, my idle temperature is fluctuating between 77C to as high as 97C. It seems to hover more in the 80's. Is that normal or did I buy a lemon? Maybe that's why my system starts...

    Question about Performance

    This is probably a duh question but I'm wondering if the Geek bench 4 results for the Mac would be the same if you ran the same test on the same Mac in Boot camp with Windows. I'm only asking because I was comparing the Surface Book 2 to the latest 13" MacBooks. Also, is it okay to turn off...

    SB2 Firmware?

    Hi, I just bought the 1TB version of the SB2 15 (lot number 1746) from eBay. I feel like I got a a great deal on it - looks brand new and comes with complete care for almost 2 years. My question is do I need to download the latest firmware since the last owner just reset the device? I have...

    SB2 Blue screen and nvidia graphics gone from hardware list after reboot

    Oh, nevermind. I guess I can't read! Glad things worked out. I hope that doesn't happen to my gpu because I got that same error message. Although my gpu is working.

    SB2 Blue screen and nvidia graphics gone from hardware list after reboot

    I spoke to Nvidia earlier this week and the latest driver doesn't contain the SB2 device ID which is why the latest version is giving us that error. The technician stated they were alerting the team and will have an updated release containing our device ID. Can you download an older version of...

    Using 2 laptops

    I had a friend who just bought that system and loves it. I noticed that Best Buy has the Lenovo yoga 720 for $730 and it comes with thunderbolt 3. I'm not sure if it is 4 Lane but I think it works with an external gpu. It's tempting to have a slim portable system to compliment my SB 2 but I...

    Using 2 laptops

    I was curious if anyone owning the SP2 15" uses only that system or do you own another more portable system as your daily driver? I currently only use the 15" SB2. If you do have 2 systems, what else do you use?

    Backpack suggestion

    I just got the Staad Stout last night. This bag is awesome! You can easily see the quality put in this bag and I know it will last me for years. I'm surprised how much slimmer and smaller it is than I thought. I'm so glad I didn't get the slim bag because there wouldn't be any room for...

    Backpack suggestion

    I should be getting the Staad Stout bag today and will post back my thoughts. I do agree with you about spending over $300 for a bag is crazy, but I also know buying a $3K notebook is somewhat nuts as well.

    Backpack suggestion

    I have that exact setup for my SB2 15". I like the bag for a weekend trip but I find it a little large for a EDB. It's not a big deal but it bugs me that I can't slide it through the side access and I'm always having to shove that top flap all the way behind the bag to have easy access. I...

    Took the plunge. SB2 15" 512GB RAM .... Awesome Device!!

    I like how strong the Surface pen connects to the side of the SB2. It won't easily come off when I store it and take it out of my bag.

    Backpack suggestion

    I have the Stout on its way. I figured if I bought a $3K notebook, I may as well get a nice bag for it. I bought the grizzly leather flap with the ballistic black.

    I'm looking at the Staad Backpack but not sure if I should go with the slim or stout.

    Backpack suggestion

    I'm always looking for a better backpack that fits the Surface Book 2 15". I have gone through about 4 different ones on Amazon and eBay. Most of them are cheap and minimalist and just barely fit the Surface. I settled on the Oakley Kitchen Sink bag because it fits all of my gear and has a...

    Xbox One Controller disconnects

    Sorry if this was already posted, but I have had 2 different Xbox One controllers randomly disconnect while in middle of gameplay. I'm connected through the built in xbox wireless adapter in the SB2 15". Has anyone else had this issue? Is there a problem with my system or is this something...
