Only disappointment is that they are now selling a performance base. Only disappointment is that they are now selling a performance base which i would gladly buy, is twice as fast in 3d benchmarks.
Got my surface about two months ago and i love it. Powerful, quick, i love using onenote in tablet mode with the pen and writing my notes. Fab keyboard, great battery life and i am so glad i upgraded.

The best laptop/hybrid ever. This is how laptops should be. 🙂 the i7 is super fast, windows 10 is user-friendly and intuitive, the touch screen is spectacular and easy to use as a tablet, and there are a whole load of great new features including windows ink.
I had some reservations towards purchasing surface book, but after a month of using it, i regret i didn’t buy it sooner. Drawing with pen is delight, and actual performance astonishing.
Sleep of death – otherwise nice. . It stops responding after entering a sleep mode. Otherwise very nice and versatile tool – especially useful if you like handwriting. Microsoft surface pro 4 may be a better choice for most users.
Microsoft Surface Book 13.5 inch Touchscreen Laptop (Intel Core i7-6600U, 8 GB, 256 GB SSD, NVIDIA 1 GB Integrated Graphics, BT4/AC, Wi-Fi, Touch, Windows 10 Pro) – Silver : Expensive, classy, but dogged by the “sleep of death” bug. The surface book looks like a great piece of engineering and design, but does it live up to that impression?. This is the entry level model without the separate graphics card, but like the others in the range the display can be removed to use as a tablet. Microsoft says that the body is cut from magnesium alloy and it feels ‘rock solid’ in use (apart from the keys surround) or carrying it. The screen is a gem of clarity and, the touchscreen and touchpad work with precision once the installed windows 10 pro is updated to the windows 10 anniversary update and later thge creators update. Keys are nice in use particularly if you’re a touch-typist and, the level of backlight to the keys is adjustable. Even though bitlocker encryption is enabled by default, it’s quick and attaching an external ssd via the usb3. 0 ports provides seamless file transfer. Wi-fi is stated as mimo, but there is no guidance as to whether this is su-mimo or mu-mimo. With a wi-fi connection via a linksys ea9500 with bonded 5ghz channels, the surface book immediately picked up the fastest of the two 5ghz channels.
