    Surface Dial

    I'd read that before; there's a difference between working with and working on the screen like it does on the studio.

    Surface Dial

    Thanks for the details; I might grab one. Likely will.

    Surface Dial

    For now the sales sites says that this will only work on screen on the Studio.

    Help!!!

    Yeppers; one's portable and the other not. Other than that they're pretty similar.

    Surface RT not detecting keypresses or start button presses

    This worked for me; refresh the tablet with the keyboard attached. Make certain in Ease of Access settings that Filter Keys is turned off. I had the same issue with my wife's and this resolved the problem.

    Microsoft is now more innovative than Apple

    Not certain why you'd want to. For Apple proprietary software I suspect.

    Microsoft is now more innovative than Apple

    And Apple users are a very conservative group and won't let go of the programs they've grown accustomed to using regardless of how superior another piece of hardware might be.

    Surface Book or Surface Pro 4

    At work we are still using Win 7 due to legacy software. I would thing that the Book with its detachable clipboard would be even more versatile than the 4. Interesting.

    Surface Book or Surface Pro 4

    Really simply I like the configuration of the Book better; it works so much better for my needs of being able to write with it on my lap. Frankly the Pro that I have doesn't work well for that purpose with the flimsily attached keyboard cover. I ended up with the Performance Base unit upgrading...

    Tiny menu fonts

    I loaded CS6 on my new Surface Book and had the same experience; even dumbing down the resolution didn't make it legible. Since it is a Christmas present (along with a 27in monitor) I can't really play with it too much. Will try it with the monitor come Christmas day.

    Help!!!

    Well judging by the high traffic of responses I'm taking that none are willing to suggest to make the trade up. I've decided to keep the SB w/PB and hold off on the Studio until some more is known about how it performs. Picked up a 27 in monitor to go along with it. The docking station which was...

    Help!!!

    OK, I was already to go with the Surface Book with Performance Base 16/512. I brought it home from the MSS and have even loaded software on it; I have another 30 days to return it however. But I am so struck by the Studio that I'm really questioning whether the little guy will suffice even with...

    When will it come to the store?

    The Sub Forum name is Microsoft Surface Studio; that should give you an idea.

    Surface Dial

    So anyone know how this will interact with the Surface Book? Will it work on the screen the way it does on the Studio? What do you think; will there be a lot of apps which will be developed to work with it? Any inputs?

    Microsoft is now more innovative than Apple

    I must admit that the Studio is a very sexy computer!!! As I was buying my surface book this week I couldn't help wonder whether the book with a 27 inch monitor or the studio is a better deal? The format of the book is great but the Studio is from a different time and space outside of this...

    Which SB w/ PB?

    So on Thursday I decided to make the return and went to the MSS on the way to work. Did the facial recognition at the store and didn't open it again until Friday afternoon. At any rate, opened it at home on Friday afternoon and nada; wouldn't recognize nor would it accept anything other than the...

    When will it come to the store?

    I was playing with one yesterday; about the sexiest computer I've ever seen. Almost makes me want to give back my new Surface Book and get this instead.

    Not sure I have Performance Base?

    As shown the new models specifies 2 gig.

    Which SB w/ PB?

    After some thought I decided to go with the 16/500. The other will be returned on Friday to the MS store. I have gotten the same advice from multiple sources. It's especially valid given that there is no post purchase upgrade path that I can see. BTW; I can't subtract; it's a $400 upgrade after...

    Which SB w/ PB?

    Mary (my wife) has given me the go ahead to buy a new computer for Christmas. I went down to the Microsoft store and decided to get the Surface Book with Performance Base. I've played with idea of spending another $300 and upgrading to 16 gig and 500 gig SSD. Although this seems attractive to...
