Yes this is a rant. So I have read/watched the tear down reviews from ifixit on the Surface Pro (2017) and the Surface Laptop. I was already let down with the fact the devices did not have a modern USB type C connector but when I read their tear down reviews I was horrified and appalled at the fact that they made the choice to make the hard drive non removable. Yes Folk you cannot replace the hard drive on either of the two devices. This is by far the dumbest mistake Microsoft has made in my opinion since removing the Start button on Windows 8. I do hope that they receive enough push back from users that they quickly change this mistake and release another version within the next year and not multiple years. This is supposed to be a pro devices not that cheap $70 tablets they keep on trying to pawn off on us at the Microsoft Store. I mean come on what happens if the mother board that everything is soldered to goes out. How can a IT department recover the data. So I have to go and tell my executive who had to have the red one with carpet keyboard that their data is all gone! FRIED! More like your FIRED!
I will be telling any one who ask me if you want a Surface buy the Surface Pro 4 and skip the new models or buy the knock off versions.
Did some high up at Microsoft saying the devices were built for future ? Well not if you need to repair them. Make sure you buy the extended warranty your going to need it are you may WannaCry. And forget upgrading thats a thing of the past.
Here is the best quote from their articles.
“Yeah, Microsoft impressed us—by being way worse than we expected.“
Surface Laptop ifixit.
Surface Pro (2017)
Microsoft I hate you right now,
Proud owner of a Surface Pro 4.
Has anyone experienced OneDrive forgetting the selected folders to downloand just out all of a sudden its just downloads all of your onedrive and fills your hard drive?
That happen to me today and I realized what happen during an important event thanks MS!
It downloaded all of my Photos/Vidoes which are Gigs of data.
I am using Windows 10 Creators Update version 1703 OS build 15063.296 on a Surface Pro 4
Now I am trying to just remove my OneDrive and re-set it up and it wont let me disconnect.
Do you own a touchscreen pc and wish you had the capabilities to pause the touch screen so you can clean it without starting a program. I think if they were to add a Action Center button would be great. Can you help upvote this feature in the feedback hub? I was not the person who created it but boy I wish we had this.
So I have scoured the internet world looking for the Holy Grail looking for a Bluetooth mouse. One that is full size not a mini mouse made the hands of a pre-teen but a manly mouse. Everything I find requires a USB dongle.
I love Logitech mouses and keyboards but they do not have them in Bluetooth all of them use that Logitech USB unifying receiver. With the limitation of Surface devices only having 1 USB port (SERIOUSLY MS!) that is troubling when you need to attach your storage device or a mouse.
I really want a mouse like the Logitech Wireless Marathon Mouse M705 that is sculpted for the hand.
Have you seen big foot out their on the inter-webs?
