    As the title states, I just got a new Surface Book and when I turned it on for the first time, it booted right to the lock screen. I unlock it and it asks for an email address and password for "Other Account." It's like it's been set up with an account already. Has anyone else had this problem and if so, were you able to resolve it?

    Had same issue with my first Book. Something to do with wrong shut down at the factory once they installed Windows. I freaked out at first thinking I got a prototype or something.

    The same thing happened with mine and my wife's. I did some searching online and came across a thread at the Microsoft answer forums where people were being told that SBs were being pulled from the assembly lines and fired up. I ended up going to MS support myself, and I was told the same thing. The support person checked our serial numbers assured me that our SBs were brand new.

    indeed they are brand new when they were going through Quality Check the individuals who were assigned to this duty tried to get the lots out asap.
