    No, I bought a SP7 around November last year and it had a defective screen out of the box. I didn’t have time to take it in until only recently—and luckily I timed it when I did or I would now be having to snail mail it to Microsoft.

    I have to admit....a few weeks ago I was detailing my nefarious plot to engineer a calamity to befall my Pro 5.....in hopes of using my Surface Protection plan to.....ideally snag a Pro 7 or Pro 6.....but with the physical Microsoft Stores closed till further notice.....and my protection plan being up at the beginning of June........while I feel I would have a good chance that a physical Microsoft Store wouldn't have any Pro 5 stock left and thus replace it with a Pro 6 or Pro 7...........If by May the stores are still closed and I have to snail mail it to Microsoft Direct.......I don't think I would luck out nearly as much..........Microsoft corporate more certainly I'm sure would have no problem obtaining a Pro 5 to send back my way. It would seem my hubris in detailing my plot might prove to be my downfall at the hands of tech karma.

    Karma can be a b**** or so they say, so caution is your best friend in this case. I guess the isolation and distancing are getting to me already, but I feel like we'll get "just two more weeks" on May Day.

    If it makes you feel a little better, I have had the the same thought as you. Hopefully, we can stand six feet apart on this boat.

    There's a new thread on this topic - and I call BS on Microsoft's "explanation" - they are the ONLY OEM not supporting TB3, and this is just an excuse for protecting the Surface Connector. Worse yet, justifying non-replaceable/expandable RAM on the risk of freezing DRAM with liquid nitrogen to "steal" data - that's like saying we should shield the entire planet from the sun to avoid some folks getting severe sunburns. There are only two justifications for soldered RAM:
    1. save motherboard space in tightly confined laptops, and
    2. upsales - if you will ever want more than 4/8 gb, you better buy it now.

    Updates to Win 10 2004... 'Cortana isn't available in your region'.

    Joy. Probably why updating on a SP7 is blocked. Opps. (I've read a few articles and I really cannot be bothered to fix it. If I add the U.S. Language I'll forever be haunted by the random appearances of the language bar thing)

    P.s. Works fine on my desktop. Quite odd. (I've removed it and then installed the app. Nope)
