    I'll cull my wish list down as well (assuming they have the same volume in the GB2 form factor as the GB12 (s we get the kickstand no matter what):
    1. 4g LTE (unlocked)
    2. 1 TB3 port
    3. 8gb/512gb max offerings
    Since there is already a Verizon 4g LTE model, the only things I'm asking for is another 256gb of SSD and ONE TB3 port - surely that is (was) achievable even with the 7th gen i5, much less the more power efficient 8th gen i5...

    But then again, MS couldn't even muster the resources to add 4g LTE to the Surface Pro 6...:vbrolleyes::vbcool:

    You'll get your chance; wait until I post something that's easy to ridicule - meaning, wait until I post something! - and smother me with humiliating youTube memes! (You see what I've done - above?)

    @Azzart - pray tell, where are you headed next? iPad Pro 11 or 12.9?

    IF I find someone who buys the computer, than I'll get the Pro 12.9.
    Plus I'm going to sell the Book 10.6 and get another Book 12.

    The Surface Book 2 is a lovely machine. It's a great machine.
    But a machine I have to admit to myself whose potential I never find the time to make use of. Like the VR headset I got in December: I used it only once with the Book 2 the day it arrived to make sure it worked fine.
    Even playing normal games I end up using GeforceNow streaming service so I don't have to plug the computer to the power outlet.

    Windows 10 1809 update gave me a magnificent bluescreen everytime I wake the machine from sleep if my external displays are connected to the Surface Dock.
    I tried reverting the computer back to factory settings two times today but it stays on 1809 no matter what.
    Windows doesn't accept the system image I created back in August and I frankly don't have the will to search for a previous version of Windows 10 to make a thumb drive to install windows from scratch.
    For what since I'm using the computer only for drawing?!? An iPad Pro can do that so much better without all the freaking problems a full OS always throws at me.

    I'm getting too old for all that.
    I give up!
