    The Pros, Cons and Oks for the Surface Book (HR)., November 17, 2016

    Honest Reviewer (Los Angeles) –
    (TOP 1000 REVIEWER)
      

    Pros:__________
    – Futuristic design with its hinge design and polish silver covering. This will defiantly make people turn their heads.
    – Tablet separation is seamless, as all you have to do is press the eject button on the keyboard.
    – Full magnesium body creates a strong and sturdy design. It’s one flat piece of metal so it’ll be able to hold its ground anywhere you go.
    – It’s solid, even when you’re holding the tablet, when connected to the keyboard, it will not get loss of feel it’s about to disconnect.
    – Unlike many laptops, you will never see any key outlines of oily imprints on the screen when you close it.
    – This is the first to have a separate graphic processor (Nvidia) into a computer tablet. Very rare right now to have that much power in smaller laptops.
    – Tablet, when drawing or writing, is smooth and fluent
    – SSD drive, you can never go wrong with an SSD.
    – Unlike its previous models with the kickstand, this one is built to stay on your lap.
    – The keyboard layout is one of the best as it private a deep click, creating a satisfying feedback.
    – Nothing plastic this is as if Apple has built it.
    – Pen works at it does and has a built in magnet so you attach it to the side.
    – Two USB 3.0 ports
    – Nvidia graphic chip will be able to run some basic gaming.
    – The battery layout is pretty impressive as there are two batteries built in. When the base battery is dead you can still us it as a tablet because that battery will never be used when attached to the base.
    – Not much bloatware. This is something that we can all appreciate when buying a new computer.
    – Beautiful display with a 3000×2000 pixel layout.
    – Dark scenes in videos are deep and consistent in quality, even when the brightness on the computer is turned up.
    – Strong performance, definitely above average.
    – The touch surface is stable and not glitchy at all. Smooth and gliding, with no resistance.
    – Backlit keyboard is a beautiful light display that illuminates the symbol on each key.
    – Brightness level works like a charm when you’re outside facing the evil sun.
    – Large trackpad.
    – High power I-core and GTX 965M graphics card make this a beast with higher end programs.
    – 6-10 hours of battery life (this is also a Con) of the normal day browsing the web, jumping between apps, writing an email, social media. Not bad for the power it holds.
    – The webcam is enough to have meetings on it as well has a built-in facial recognition for signing into Windows without a password (Yes, it does work just as it promises).

    Cons and Oks:__________
    – When your tablet is low on battery, when connecting it to the base you will not be able to eject it until the battery is recharged till a certain amount.
    – Battery life is decent but falls in what they promise (12-15 hours). I suppose it’s possible if you just do the bare minimal, but the worse I got was 6 hours. So it’s still a great battery life, just not as long as it’s stated.
    – Always need major updates which become annoying.
    – The unique hinges make the screen unable to close flat on itself. You will have a noticeable gap between the screen and keyboard when the unit is closed.
    – Tablet weights around 1.5-2 lbs.
    – This is not a gaming laptop; you will be able to play some basic gaming on medium graphics.
    – Overall the tablet and base combine to weigh around 3.5 lbs. Pretty heavy for what it represents. Keep in mind this weight is justified because of its solid, full metal body.
    – No key function to control the screen brightness as sometimes the auto-adjusting light sensor isn’t entirely accurate.
    – Multi-touch gestures are still not the best in response.
    – All ports are on the keyboard so none (except the audio port) of the ports will come with the tablet when you detached it.
    – Tablet around 2:30 of battery life.
    – No USB Type-C ports.
    – Expensive compare what other competitors are selling with closely resemble software.
    – The “sleep of death” has occurred This is when the computer will go to sleep but won’t wake up as the only option will need to be a hard set. The “sleep of death” keeps running the battery until it runs out. There have been updates to prevent this from happening.
    – You are not able to update the RAM.
    – No HDMI port as you will need to purchase and adapter to get this option.

    Bottom Line:__________

    It’s indeed a strong laptop and a powerful tablet. This is the first form of layout that you’ll be able to function both sides of use without any annoyance as both the base and tablet functions work beautifully. I consider the last model the iPhone 6 and this model the iPhone 7. Meaning if you already have a…

    Best laptop I’ve owned, November 29, 2016

    Best laptop I’ve owned. It’s an investment to pay this much for a laptop, but the quality is second to none and is very functional. The first one I received was defective (locked up every 5-10 minutes or screen would go to a checker pattern), but Amazon handled my exchange quickly and had a new one the next day. This paired with the dock as a bundle which was something Amazon offered was a better price than the laptop by itself through MSFT. My one recommendation would be to buy the Complete Protection Plan at a Microsoft Store after you purchase the laptop here. The warranty adds two more years and provides drop/spill protection for a small price. Think of what you’re paying for this laptop … the extra for the warranty can be justified.

    THE BEST & MOST ENJOYABLE LAPTOP I HAVE EVER OWNED!, February 15, 2017

    This review is from: Microsoft Surface Book (Intel Core i5, 8GB RAM, 128GB) with Windows 10 Anniversary Update (Personal Computers)
    Love it! This is the first time I have ever written a review because this is such a great laptop.

    I’ve owned 4 or 5 different laptops over the years and none have come close to the Microsoft Surface Book. just prior to buying this one, I purchased a different brand of laptop from a big store, It was significantly larger in size and had a detachable keyboard. I had it for a week and returned it. Had trouble with it right out of the box, did not run right at all and kept shutting down. And it turns out, it was way too big for me anyway. I didn’t like how the keyboard detached and I didn’t like how big the tablet was. I am SO glad I returned that one and found the Surface Book on Amazon.

    So, I was a bit concerned at first that the Surface Book would be a little too small for me because I always had bigger laptops, but that turned out to be what is so great about it. I can take it anywhere. I put it in the case I bought with it and take it everywhere. Fits perfectly in my backpack.

    The detachable keyboard is awesome. One button to detach and I’m working on an awesome tablet. Line it back up and it locks itself back in. it is so cool, I can’t say enough good things about it.

    I’ve had it for a couple of months now and I have not had a single issue, not one complaint and no regrets. I really enjoy working on it and have never been able to say that about any other laptop that I had in the past. It’s just fun.

    I can honestly say that the Microsoft Surface Book (Intel Core i5, 8GB RAM, 128GB) with Windows 10 Anniversary Update is THE BEST and most ENJOYABLE laptop I have ever owned. I have, and will continue to recommend it to everyone.
