    Problems with 4k monitor

    I am having problems connecting my Surface Book v1 to a 4k monitor. I first tried connecting to the monitor's DisplayPort input via the Surface Dock 1.

    How do I install the Intel graphics control panel?

    I ran across a thread the other day that described how to add a custom display resolution for the Surface Book with 50Hz. Unfortunately, I can't find that thread at the moment. It called for using the Intel graphics control panel. I am unable to figure out how to run/install that utility. Can...

    Any advice? Dual monitors not working through Surface dock.

    Buy keyboard section only?

    Do you think at some point Microsoft might sell just the keyboard part of the Surface Book? I'd love to have one keyboard at the office and one at home. I suppose the fact that there are multiple versions (i.e. with and without dGP) makes this more complicated and less likely?

    SP 4 Core M3 vs SP3 Core i5?

    Anyone know what to expect in terms of performance between the new Surface Pro 4 with the Core M3 compared to the current Surface Pro 3 sporting the Core i5?

    Is anyone else having problem entering paragraph breaks when typing a message in this forum? I have tried from the desktop IE browser of both a Windows 8 Pro machine and a Surface RT machine. I hit enter, but don't get a paragraph break. Annoying!

    Do Surface RT and Surface Pro use the same Touch/Type keyboards?

    Do Surface RT and Surface Pro use the same Touch/Type keyboards? I just tried the Type keyboard at Staples yesterday. It felt much thinner than I expected and yet the keys still felt really good. I'm tempted to pick one up, but only want to spent the money if I can also use it with the Pro.

    Why the unusual interface for the AC adapter?

    Is there a functional reason for this? Allows for faster charging? Something else? I can't stand it, so at least tell me it servers a purpose.
