    I agree. I actually had the fingerprint reader Pro 4 cover that I used for my Pro 3 years ago. I really didn’t use it that much, because for logging in purposes, if you already had the keyboard cover out and ready anyway, it was just as easy if not quicker just to type your login or pin. Putting the fingerprint reader on the tablet itself would be preferable since it could be used regardless if the type cover is attached or not.

    If they complain about all your calls, tell them that you're doing them a service by preventing all other TPCR SP8 buyers from calling in as well! :thumbsup:

    Haha… It’s been nearly a different person picking up each time so I think they’re not too bothered by it. :)

    Yeah they completely overhauled the entire cooling system in the Pro 8 compared to the 7/7+ and MS told us the Laptop Studio shares it.

    We did notice in our testing that in aggregate the Pro 8 is quite a bit slower to throttle under maximum load and even when it does, it does so for less than half the time of the 7.

    Latest ETA for CDW orders is pushed back to November 24th. So, we are still looking at a 30-day delay from the day you call them.
