    Guess I should have remembered P.T. Barnum's motto...

    Haha. Yeah. It was a fun adventure. Now I'm sitting on a VAIO Z Canvas I can't decide if I want, and a x220t refurb that's on its way. Honestly the price and low battery lid just killed it for me. Basically turned it into an expensive ultrabook.

    It's amazing how I keep being drawn to the display model at Best Buy, until it crashes when I disconnect and reconnect the clipboard...

    My biggest concern was the electronic way of removing the clipboard. If the SB is off, you'd have to boot the device, press (and hold) button, and then remove clipboard.

    It's not so much the latching and electro-mechanics that bothered me - it's the system failures when doing so...

    I suspect the unit at Best Buy has rarely if ever been updated from the initial image that the Book shipped with. I can't remember the last time mine crashed or BSOD-ed because I disconnected the clipboard.

    Yeah that would really piss me off if it crashes all the time.

    Surface book is the best device I ever used.

    It is tough to go back to Surface pro 4 when I am used to the size.
