I've used that tactic
Customer calls: "Sander, there's a bug in the software."
Me: "Really? I can't imagine our software has any defects..." while quickly doing an update.
Customer: "Yeah really, if I do... Huh, it works now, but it didn't a minute ago!"
Me: "Seems like you've really lost it this time..."
Customer: "Did you just do an update!?"
Me: "You can't prove that "
Those are a good resolution. I like having 1440 lines. I have 1200 at work and it's pretty good but I have 1440 at home. I would probably have gone for the 27s at that resolution just to get the text bigger, although they are twice the price. I would also have looked for some that are cheaper than Dells.

Dell regular price are always to high so they can have big sale as the 200 rebate currently in the US.
I don't remember the last sale price I saw but is has probably close to AUD$450.00. Still higher than the US price even with taxes excluded but a good price for that monitor. I have the previous model (U2515D) at home and it great. Thinking about getting one for work as I miss having Visual Studio on a QHD resolution.
This is happening on two separate dev boxes. Both W10, latest version of VS2017. Both are laptops, but on one, wired keyboard and wireless mouse, the other one is just the built in keyboard and touchpad.
So, definitely not specific to the machine. It's definitely VS, as the stuttering goes away after a few seconds.
I had the same problem with VS2015. Thinking about this, it's tough problem for MS developers. Program registers global mouse hook, so callback function is called on every mouse event. When the program breaks in the debugger and mouse moves, our callback is called, and everything is stuck.
I think that Windows finally detects problematic function in the hook chain and kicks it off, but this is only my guess.
This has been without doubt the moist incredible spring I have ever seen. Day after day of wall to wall sun, and low to mid 20s temperature. Absolutely amazing! (especially for Devon, we can get a lot of rain off the Atlantic).
