CONGRATULATIONS MICROSOFT - you've done the impossible and put a MacBook trackpad in the Surface Book!
That is not an exaggeration:
- Navigation is effortless.
- Two finger scrolling is smooth as silk up/down and left/right
- Rotation is great
- Pinch to zoom works like a dream.
The Surface Pro trackpad is the BEST Windows trackpad ever, and I dare say 95% of the MacBook trackpad. A singular achievement in itself.
Now for a little rant...
I'm using my Surface Book (i7/16gb/512gb) with the new dock. It keeps having problems with random fast disconnects/reconnects to the point that no USB devices work, but displayport is still rock solid. The immediate work around I tried was going into device manager to uncheck power management for every USB device. That worked, but then a few days later the problem returned, and the Generic Superspeed USB Hub was re-checked to allow power management. This is extraordinarily frustrating because: (1) there is absolutely no reason to power manage when on AC, and (2) more importantly - WHY CAN'T I DECIDE HOW I WANT TO SET UP MY OWN COMPUTER! I should be able to go into advanced options in power plan customization and fix this permanently, but Microsoft in its ultimate wisdom (or is that just ultimate power) doesn't list USB Settings, in fact, a lot of stuff is plain missing.
ENOUGH WITH THE NANNYSTATE ALREADY!
