    This is literally my Cobalt i5(7200U since apparently we have to specify xD) every time I try to watch YouTube or any other flash video on the web in full screen, Edge or IE. Starts getting laggy and fans get super loud. Its really annoying at this point.taskmanager.jpg

    I just received my Surface Laptop with a slight lightbleed but nothing too crazy. But that also made me realize the QC from apple product is pretty good!

    Pros:
    1) Great Screen
    2) Nice Audio
    3) Amazing keyboard
    4) Alcantara gives good comfort
    5) Classy shell design

    Cons:
    1) Lack of ports
    2) Screen Panel QC
    3) Dust on the plastic packaging right out of the box
    4) Dust also on the machine right out of packaging...makes me wonder...
    5) Hard to service?

    But i guess i'm the odd ball here...i actually like this surface laptop....simple...nothing too gimmicky like the touch bar.

    I have a Cobalt Blue Surface Laptop. So far it is treating me very well. No bizarre CPU utilization or anything. I think it is fantastic, and it is the prettiest device I have ever purchased. The Cobalt Blue is a phenomenal color. Really like it.

    I am also an owner of the Surface Laptop i5 7200u/8/256 and I am pretty disappointed with the SSD speeds. I previously owned a Surface Pro 4 which felt much faster/snappier than the Surface Laptop.

    I am curious, though, about the different model numbers. The "consumer" edition seems to be DAG-00013 for my model. There seem to be some "business" models out on the market which have the model numbers DAH-00013 (256) and EUS-00013 (128). According to their specifications these seem to be equipped with the i5 7300u. @sunfir222 Can you confirm that one of these model numbers corresponds with your purchased Surface Laptop 7300u? And also, have you tested your SSD, is it a Samsung or Toshiba? Thanks for your help!

    I bought one on Craigslist. It was used for 2 weeks by the original owner and pretty much new. Paid $750 for i5/8gb/256
    I love the screen, it's much larger coming from a surface pro 3. Sound quality from the speakers is excellent. I'm sticking with Windows 10 S for now to if I can get by and also get great battery life. I can always upgrade to Pro until March 2018. Edge does run much faster than on my SP3 so I'm pretty satisfied so far.

    I just received my i7/8gb/256gb Blue model yesterday. It's early, but so far I'm very happy. Coming from a SB, no complaints. I'm going to try to use 10 S as long as possible without upgrading ;)

    Quick question: how are you able to test disc speeds with 10 S? CrystalMark isn't available in the store.

    So, after another day, one thing that really stands out to me is the keyboard deck, and not in a good way. It's not bad, but in comparison to the Surface Book, which I'm coming from, it seems a step down. I'm not sure why they went with the cloth, but I can't think of a reason, other than to be different. I think the colors are enough of a differentiator. Just my opinion.
