    I now have two on pre-order.

    My main question, to myself, is whether I give the 'MD' a machine with Windows 11, or Windows 10. It's the MD... with a brand new OS. Will have a think. To have 16Gb on a Surface pro is damn fantastic. (Yeah, I know, 32Gb would be nice, but we're not made of cash).

    Will be on the hunt for a 500Gb 2230 replacement, early next month.

    The SP8 has me finally posting on this forum, after years of just lurking in the shadows. Hi everyone!

    Are they the same mid range SSDs as in previous SP/SPX units, or something newer? WD SN530 / Toshiba KBG something? Are you able to say what exact SSD was in your sample?

    So, MS does multisource SSDs in their systems. But the sample we have 256GB is identical to the one in most of our Pro 7+ units. A WD SN530

    This might be a good opportunity for a Public Service Announcement to all you lurkers out there:

    weaktoss joined our site earlier today and was able to get an answer to his technical question from another member in about an hour. Membership definitely has its benefits!

    You could do worse than signing up to join us and, of course, it's free...!

    Along with healthy doses of witticism, skepticism, realism and idealism.

    This is a NO CLICKBAIT ZONE
