Even the caps lock button gets lit after 5-6 seconds of pressing it (not only caps lock but all keyboard buttons as well as the mouse) I could barely reach the log in account screen, even if I do its so slow it doesn't let me log in as its so slow. I have to reboot again BUT rest 5% of the time it worked normally! So I'd repeatedly reboot until it loads normal and doesn't slow. Any solution man? 😞😓 I'm tired

  • There wouldn't be a problem if the 15 inch AMD Ryzen 7 16GB Surface Laptop 4 would cost $1,000. Ultimately, price is what makes a device great or not. The performance difference to the M1 MacBooks would be more than justifiable, but like this, paying even a slightly higher price than a comparable 13 inch MacBook is kind of insane. This is clearly a business aimed product, where some folks are unfortunately stuck in the Windows ecosystem and these, as laughable as they are, are actually the best Windows laptops on the market right now, in this category. It's no wonder they keep Windows locked down on ARM chips, the Surface line would end if they made Windows available on ARM, as I am sure Apple is more than happy to allow Boot Camp just fine. I mean, you still buy one of their computers, and I am sure that real world performance of Windows on M1 silicon is better than any x86 machine. Indeed, the best Windows laptop on the market could be an M1 MacBook. Even with a 20% drop, the MacBook would be a top choice for people that need to use Windows if it run Windows. So, bottom line, Microsoft, discount these Surface devices by 50% and then you'll easily win in the consumer market. In the current state of affairs, only people that really need Windows on bare metal should look on these when the M1 chips exist.

  • The interesting bit here is that, as much as AMD did come up on multicore and battery life, there are legitimate tradeoffs and reasons to get either one. The Intel one keeps nearly all of its performance on battery life while the AMD falls off, and does have better GPU and single threaded performance, which makes things like the web feel snappier. AMD for battery life or if you know you use more than 4C/8T. Intel for better "everyday snap" with the consistent performance unplugged, the single core performance, and the IGP. But they're both slightly red in the face because of M1.

  • The M1 machines are very spiffy but the NAND write issue has me thoroughly spooked from getting one because an SSD crapping out in 2~4 years due to ram heavy loads... woudn't be much fun, knowing apple they'll probably try to weasel their way out of covering repair costs despite building an avoidable failure mode into the machine to eek an extra bit of performance out of the machines in question. You can get around it somewhat by buying one with more ram & nand cells but despite this it's apparent (at least on the surface) that these machines aren't built to last. Apple's boards in laptops aren't known to be the most reliable not that there are many laptops that can claim that title. (Outside of stuff like toughbooks which tend to be overbuilt but still manage to fail once in a blue moon). Maybe in ten years I'll look back at my SSD hypermiling and laugh that said the peace of mind that comes from not constantly dumping data on the suckers is worth more to me than the slight performance edge that comes from dumping/loading data that would ideally stay in RAM instead of taking a trip on the SSD.
