    This price is for 128GB storage which some people will bleat about and was £750 at Amazon last week. Also note that for £750 you can get a Laptop 4 with Ryzen 5, twice the storage (256GB) and (wait for it...) a keyboard!

    Indeed but really glad they made the main memory upgradable using an easy access back panel.

    I don't see Eneba or Gamivo on TCB. Are you sure?


    I've just checked and eneba has been removed. Gamivo was never on there, eneba was 8.25% for more than a year, though. Gutted, because I buy from eneba all the time
    However, try this discount code on the eneba website for 8% off your purchase - a9ioAKS

    I see £50 gift card is down to £41.79 on eneba, though, which is a fantastic price, plus 8% off with that code. Still very much worth it

    Not sure if it's been mentioned already but you can save a significant amount of money on anything you buy from the Microsoft store by buying Microsoft gift cards from gray market key sellers (eneba or gamivo is usually cheapest). £50 gift cards have been as low as £38 before now, but usually go for around £40-£45. You can then save even more money still by buying the gift cards through topcashback portal, which gives you 8.25% cashback on eneba.

    So, assuming the gift cards are £43, that brings the spend down to £688, that's £58 cashback on eneba, bring the final spend down to £630.

    I did this for a couple of xbox consoles from the MS store. (edited)

What it can do, sometimes, is run video through a process which fakes the look of Dolby Vision at the cost of high processor use and heavy fan noise.I say sometimes because most apps like Disney Plus and Prime Video see that the hardware doesn't support HDR and so it isn't even available as an option.Also, running it at 120hz burns through the battery in no time at all so it's not really a viable option unless you're using it corded.Big disappointment from Microsoft.

    I have the pro 8 and slim pen 2, I've had no issues with Adobe fresco or photoshop; from videos I've seen the wonky lines is down to the pen and not the surface, with the slim pen 2 fixing the issues.

    Be aware that the SSD is 2230 format and you'll pay a premium (over standard 2280) there are loads on ebay but if you want new and therefore a warranty your choice is limited in the UK (edited)

    Typical crap description from Microsoft:

    1 They don't explicitly state if it can be charged from USB-C or not. So I have to assume not, just like some other recent Microsoft tablets. Particularly as they refer to a charging port. Not all of us want to carry a big heavy power brick around or be tied into one brand of power supply, so this is immediately a deal breaker.

    2 They don't show a photo of the power brick or as far as I can tell, show it's weight. (edited)

    Yes, it can be charged via USB-C - any typical USB-C charger will do provided it has a reasonable wattage.

    From the blurb:

    "All Surface Pro 8 models come with two USB Type-C ports as a standard. The port supports USB4 and Thunderbolt 4 (with a speed up to 40Gbps or 5GB/s), display out, and charging. Both ports are located on the right side of the PC next to the Surface Connect port."

    The very first line of your post. Now it's "you can run it at lower refresh rates".

    And if a product promises Dolby Vision support then it should deliver it. Like the iPad does.

    You were complaining about the great refresh rate, I was just pointing out the devices flexibility.

    If you consider that an ipad provides the standard for dolby vision then you should probably get an ipad - I am not sure that a device from any other manufacturer will make you happy.

    I have both. The Surface Pro 8 promised a professional grade screen but delivered a poorly calibrated SDR screen. If you're a creative professional and you need to produce work in a wide gamut then the Surface Pro 8 won't cut it, even though the advertising spiel (you pasted some of it above) makes it seem like it can. Conversely, the iPad Pro from 2018 has a fantastic screen, wide gamut and fully supports DCI-P3.

    If that isn't important to you, then buy Surface.

    Nits is a measurement of how much light the screen sends to your eyes (luminance) within a given area, it mostly certainly does have nits.

    "Other than that, Microsoft opted for a fair quality 3:2 IPS panel here with 450-nits of brightness, 1000:1 contrast, and ~100% sRGB color coverage."

    13 inch, 2880 x 1920 px resolution (3:2 aspect ratio), up to 120 Hz refresh rate, IPS, touch, 450+ nits
