    That's the problem with the 32gb window's devices, there's never enough space to download new major updates and using an ISO file on a dongle is quite cumbersome. You have to keep worrying if the battery will run out before the very slow update is completed.
    What I did was to compress the entire files on the main drive (took 24hrs) and recovered a lot of space. With the DV8P 5855, it wasn't a problem because it had 64gb of storage and 4gb if ram.

    Taking a picture of the hands of another man purchasing some boxes from Microsoft.

    It's not like your wife could be taking a picture of you purchasing a Surface Go or anything like that.

    It was surprisingly light and I could force it into the same bag I used for only the iPP, but with a larger keyboard I'll need a better bag. The mouse can connect to two devices. There was even place for my tether phone.

    My Surface 3 gave up for me. I was loosing touch. It was becoming a PITA. We'll see how it goes.

    Tether time?

    I gave in to tethering to my GN8

    Was worth it to me to be able to use the gorgeous af SB2 15 inch screen on a bus in portrait mode
