Surface 3 was sitting on my desk plugged into a wall charger and the title says it all. Everything works but touch screen. Replacing it with a Pixel Slate ...

Ohh Snap. Batteries in general are known for swelling over time with age. Even more so when the cells get over/under charged alot. Good thing it didn't catch fire. My S3 Atom is rarely used but often updated. Win10 Pro x64 1809. A bit slow but servers it's purpose.

Was tempted to give the Surface Go a shot but weak battery life was the reason my interest switched to the Slate. My S3 was strictly my road warrior. I'm sure Chrome OS will meet my needs.
