    Microsoft Surface All In One Tablet

Since the screen was constantly lit I had to keep the device plugged in permanently after watching a few shows on the surface. I know part of that was me using chrome with Adblock to avoid all the ads on websites and Microsoft does recommend using Edge Browser for...
