A Surface Pro 3 - ex display stock, minor cosmetic damage to one corner, but the screen is perfect, and it comes with the Type Cover in a fetching red flock-feel. Includes PSU but no pen, but for the price (£220 incl delivery) I can live with that.

So ... it's ex display, and I don't know the password. And Windows 10 is finicky about such things. Plus it connects to my WiFi but "no internet" so I suspect that is disabled in settings I can't get to.

I'll wipe and reload with a fresh recovery OS download. May take a while, but I should end up with a clean and clear machine.

Surprisingly, it seems quite quick - 54% recovery in 15 mins or so. I guess the SSD is way faster than the WookieTab one was.
