    Meaning you can actually use touch in it?
    Hah, I thought you still need a keyboard attached.

    Nope. Unlike many other tablet PCs, the Surface Pro 4's UEFI is fully touch-enabled.

    I have the 3, but it should be the same, no?

    Hot damn!
    It wasn't as pretty as on the 4, but there was a mouse pointer (arrow) that responded to touch, and the battery setting was called Kiosk mode, but it worked.

    Only issue now is that if I want to bring it with me, I pretty much have to reset the UEFI and then charge it over night (upside is I should have a stronger battery), but hey, that is what I have the Go for. Thanks for illuminating me.

    Has anyone ever seen this error message displayed when disconnecting or reconnecting the Surface power connector? "There was an error detecting your system's batteries." There is no shutdown or anything and the battery percentage still shows up before and after this message is displayed. I will be confounded and flabbergasted if this warranty replacement unit is going out mere months after replacement. I really wanted to wait until next year to replace my Surface Pro 4 but I might be forced to do an emergency upgrade to the Surface Pro 6 if this gives up the ghost soon.
