    I'll try not to rush my review, but the pressure to take advantage of release week interest is strong! (I'm not one of the anointed reviewers who gets advance units).

    Seriously now. @surfaceproartist please try to check if there's ANY light bleed on the bottom side of the screen like the new Surface Pro and Surface Laptop and if the pen works reliably (meaning it doesn't change it's behaviour if you touch the screen with your palm or if you keep the tablet portion in your hand while drawing)

    So of course the SB2 didn't arrive. Microsoft says they shipped it. FedEx only shows a label printed and estimated delivery changed from sometime today to "Pending." So much for my chance to scoop anyone.

    In-Store Pre-Ordered Surface Books 2 arrived in MS Stores Today

    I was in the MS store today where I pre-ordered my SB 2 15" 1TB.

    They said all of the units pre-ordered in the store early on the 9th had already arrived and were in the stock room with their matching receipts taped to them. They couldn't be persuaded to let me have my unit today - but I'll be there at 10AM when the doors open in the morning! WooHoo!!

    One of the technicians said the packaging looks pretty cool - better than SB1.

    Looks like you're not alone: https://www.windowscentral.com/surface-book-2-preorder-ship-dates-slip-some

    It also looks like PCMag will have a one-minute review up first thing in the morning. Currently the video is not available though.
