good, surface book 2 display would blank out randomly
Wish they would find a way to fix the horrific battery drain issues. I cant use my surface book 2 tablet at all. Runs out of battery in minutes. Full device in 90mins
Interesting. I still have an old Surface Book 2015 that I use for Minecraft and I've switched to the latest Nvidia graphics drivers which are constantly updated. Good to see this long term support though.
