    This is a huge disappointment for someone like me who wants an LTE model. Why can’t they get their act together?

    Maybe pre-orders weren't fantastic? Not even sure if there's a pre-order or not.

    Anyone else update Windows 10 to Fall Creators Update? I did and its going pretty well, but my Surface Arc Mouse has been acting crazy. I've rebooted a couple of times and its like a wild horse for a minute or so... and then settled down and worked fine. Then this morning it just stop working completely. I've powered the Arc on and off a few times, but no go. I get the blue light, but I'm wondering if it is coincidentally a battery issue. Any troubleshooting recommendations?

    yea might want to replace the battery just to be sure, I have RS3 on my nSP and its working well but don't have the arc mouse so I can't speak for that one. so far it seems smoother than RS2 if that makes any sense...

    There was a driver update for the Bluetooth Driver waiting for reboot. I rebooted and the mouse started working again, but its still acting wonky after I first booted, and then settled down. It makes you really wonder, what in the world did they do in Fall Creators Update that would have mucked with a mouse driver???

    Since fall creator's update, I still can't figure out how to get my onscreen keyboard back when not using tablet mode.

    And you don't want to put the 'touch keyboard button' on the taskbar? (right-click taskbar > show touch keyboard button)
