    Yes, it's the full Surface Book with the screen and keyboard. They aren't sold separately. This is a refurbished device.

    Does anyone know if there is a folio case to carry around just the tablet (screen part)?

    I'm, once again, back on the Surface Book train. I really wish that the tablet section had a kickstand like the Surface pro but that would probably eat into the sales of the Surface.

    Welcome back! :) You didn't want to wait the remaining 3 days and preorder the Book 2? Or did you find a particularly good deal?

    Ideally I want the 15" with the 1060 but would have to sell my car to get one. Or a kidney

    So... It's arrived in all its Core i5 (Booooo it's not an i7 or Quad core) glory and, unfortunately, I'm experiencing a small issue. Whenever, or after using the nVidia card, I get dialog boxes with nothing in them for a few seconds while undertaking normal Windows tasks. Also the Book is noticeably slower than before using the card. Early days in the diagnosis but I though that I'd throw this out there.

    This is a second hand unit, from eBay, with a clean install of the latest consumer release of Windows 10. Picture taken with, possibly, the worst phone camera ever made in the last 5 years (Maze Alpha phone).

    The speed of the machine, despite Task manager stating that it's sleeping, is suddenly sluggish.

    The picture shows a right click on the recycle bin. As soon as I press Print screen the options appear.

    Ignore my stupid noob face... It's the latest build of the Dolphin EMU being super rubbish. Just fired up a load of other stuff with no issues. PANIC.

    Sold it.

    A Performance base, 512Gb, i7, 16Gb monster is on the way.

    The new SB2 is a bit too much for my price range so I'll keep the above until the Quad SB2 hits £1200.
