    [PRICE REDUCED] FS: Surface Book 2 15" i7 GTX 1060 512GB 16GB w/ loads of FREE Accessories!

    I've had the SB2 for a few months now, and realized this machine is just not for me. There's nothing wrong with it, it's just that I can't escape the Apple ecosystem and I'm returning back to the dark side. For some details, the machine itself is immaculate. I spray it down daily with a...

    Surface Dock can't even charge my iPhone

    How weak and pathetic is this dock? I only have an iPhone SE with the smallest battery in current smartphones, and it can't even hold a consistent charge. The phone is constantly going in and out of charge which triggers the Windows alert sound of a peripheral being connected/disconnected...

    SB2 not connecting to external monitor.

    So here is the setup. I've been using a 2015 MBP and it connects fine to an LG TV that I have via MiniDisplay - HDMI or just a regular HDMI cable. I used the same mini display - hdmi cable from the SB2 to the LGTV, but the TV says there's no signal. So after some googling it could be that the...

    Surface Book 2 and Airpods

    Is anyone having connectivity issues with this combo? I have it paired with my iPhone SE as well as my Surface Book 2. The issues I have are after it's been paired with my SB2, and choose the audio source back to my phone, the SB2 would automatically connect again. If I disconnect from my...

    Not sure if there is a fix for this, but when I'm watching YouTube on Chrome, and when the video controls show up on the video, the entire video lights up more than the original video, then when the controls fade away, the brightness of the video returns to normal. This happens both times when...

    Using the SP3 as an external monitor

    I know how to connect the SP3 to an external monitor, but how about the other way around? Is it possible to use the surface as THE external monitor, and not as the main computer outputting the signal to an external monitor? I have searched but came up with no luck. Thanks!

    turns on in bag during sleep??

    I can't seem to figure out why it does this. I put it to sleep, then stare at it for a few seconds to make sure that it won't turn back on. Then I put in my bag, go somewhere, pull it out, and it's burning hot with the screen on. I travel with it in a sleeve and made sure that the keyboard...

    15" Macbook Pro (mid 2015) vs. Surfacebook?

    I'm not sure this has been asked before, but which would perform better for gaming? Although the Surfacebook has been compared to the 13" MBP, just in terms of price, I feel it should be compared also to the 15" MBP. Any thoughts or data to share? Thanks.

    Using the Surface to type on iPhone?

    Does anyone know of such an app/program to make this possible? I want to type from my surface's keyboard to input onto my iPhone. I've done a search and it seems that macs can do this, but I have not been able to find anything that does it with a Windows machine. Thanks!

    Purple pen button not working after Win10

    Does anyone know a fix around this? After installing Win10 I can't get it to launch OneNote with the purple button. I set up OneNote 2013 to my default app, (didn't work with MUI either before I set this), and even unpaired, then repaired the pen. Obviously the battery's not dead as I was...

    how to sync OneNote MUI and OneNote 2013?

    I've been using the OneNote 2013 Desktop edition for a while, but realized that the MUI app seems to use less battery. I usually read my notes on my iPhone. So far, everything I see on my iPhone is everything that's on the desktop version. All other notes I made on the MUI app doesn't show on...

Could someone please explain what this folder is and what I...

    how do you make a bootable USB to recover from image backup?

    I just came back from exchanging my SP3 to a new device. Before I exchanged it, it made a disk image backup on my external HDD. Some of the directions I read on this site tells me to insert a bootable USB, but I have no idea how to create one. Could someone please advise me how to create one?
