It's a fair cop, guv.

These last few days have clearly been out if spec for the insulation. Heating up in the morning sun, then not cooling down sufficiently during the day and night, before heating up again in the morning. Each day it's getting hotter and hotter in here.

Will be fine once the rain comes tomorrow...

Today, I'm having to do my drawings in bursts of 45 minutes, then turn it off to cool down for a bit, otherwise it's shutting itself down.

Arse.

Oddness, mine has lived in the conditions you guys are temporarily suffering day in day out and I've never had any issues.

Like Deuts, I've got the dock hooked up to 2 screens and I'm still really happy with it.

I do keep looking at the Studio just because but in all reality the SP4 rocks.

Still loving my SP5. Don't feel any need to upgrade.

I love my SP5, far better than my SurfaceBook for what I do on it.

For reasons I've switched to a Dell 5290 2 in 1 at work and it's virtually identical to the Surface, don't know how they compare price wise in the real world (we get a decent discount from Dell)

Dell build quality seems to be very good these days. We subjected a number of laptops to shock testing and one of theirs beat all the others and all the ruggedised ones.

These are massive shocks btw- you would not believe how much of an s-shape laptops can survive (for an instant on slow-mo) and stay in once piece
