    Thanks Steve, but I'm thinking about something like an invisible shield, so that I won't loose the amazing look of the device :)

    ...Take a closer look at StickerBoy's metallic-finished films. The metal finishes are a close match to the Surface's natural finish...

    The dealbreaker for me was clipboard battery life. I do realize Toshiba's Z20t is Core M, but they squeezed equal batteries in the tablet/dock, and made the weight of both equal to the SB.

    When Microsoft does that, I will consider the SB. If you're taking notes all day at school, and after 2 lectures I have to dock the clipboard, it's now a 3.5lb tablet. Completely defeats the purpose, IMO.

    What's the real storage space in the 256GB version?

    I was just "catching up" on this thread (last few months of posts), and it really stood out to me that following @jnjroach's post about the firmware update, stability complaints dropped off drastically. Encouraging.

    It's still a bit of a buggy device for me, although better after the updates. I just replaced my lot1543 with a new SB (1601). The former was crashing with a BSOD every day, so I was able to have it replaced under warranty. The ms-store folks were great about it, no hassle at all. Sadly, the new one has had two bsod crashes, so we will see if it can be trusted...
    I think, as mentioned earlier, the connection to the dGPU in the base is the cause of many issues. If my crashing continues, ill probably make the switch to the upcoming VAIO z flip.

    Those BSODs may not necessarily be device related. After the February updates a few of my devices started getting random BSODs. Not often enough to be able to track and a different message each time. It will be interesting to see if they continue after today's update.

    Does it even matter if they are hardware related? I would return it anyway.

    haha..funny you mention that, I had a xps13 for less than 30 days and did just that with it even though I doubt it had anything to do with the pc itself.
