    she (and other reviewers who had their videos pulled) broke the embargo, which doesn't end until the 16th in North America I assume.

    EDIT: Just realized SurfaceProArtist said the same thing above..

    Hilarious when she said that windows switches to "tablet mode" (when detaching the screen) to save battery... :rolleyes:

    based on the review, the tablet battery life is the same as SB1.

    Which review? I posted a couple..

    Ah, found it, Windows Central. They state:

    " I fired up Netflix and set the display brightness to 50 percent and the tablet half alone got close to two and a half hours of non-stop Stranger Things. That's not terrible, but also not fantastic. It's also right in line with what I get from the smaller 13-inch Surface Book 2 in tablet mode, as well as the original Surface Book. "

    That's pretty short, I thought they had significantly improved it.

    I do love one of the sites that listed, as a negative, "No up-firing base speakers".

    Umm? Okay. (Techradar)
