Ratings and reviews

Rated 5 out of5 by fromSuperior Laptop & TabletI purchased my Surface Book, i5 8 GB RAM 256 GB, on 14 May at the Tampa, FL Microsoft Store. It was a replacement for another Laptop Brand purchased a few days before which had two initial hardware failures. While this Surface Book cost twice the other OEM Brand, it is without a doubt the best PC purchase I have made in over 25 years, to include every other major OEM Brand and Mac Books. Why? Simple: The build quality is superior, the unit is faster than any other I have used, the screen is gorgeous and it integrates Windows 10 better than any other machine while supporting several legacy Windows programs I still use. And it has NO OEM Bloatware, plus it can be a Tablet for ease of personal presentations. Excellent product worth the premium pricing.

Rated 5 out of5 by fromMy Best Laptop YetThis list will outline the pros and cons of the i7, 8 GB, dGPU version of the surface book:Pros:+ Versatile: Can use it anywhere comfortably as a tablet or a laptop.+ Light: It really is.+ Fast: Startup never took more than 20 seconds with Windows Hello on.+ Display: Gorgeous 3000x2000 resolution for my movies, shows and games,+ Battery: Lowest I've had is 4 hours and 30 minutes. That's plenty!+ Touch Screen and Pen: Smooth and responsive. The best I've had.+ Interface: The keyboard is well aligned and the touchpad is placed well.+ Cameras: Sharp.+ Sound: Some of the loudest and crisp out there.Other pluses would include a magnetic charger and being pretty.Cons:- Temperature: Raises to the point where touching it is painful behind the screen.- Gaming: Temperature rises, fans get loud and it can't handle mid-level graphics.Other cons include a slight disturbance when opening (lifting the screen) the laptop and the awkwardly placed headphone jack. But then again, there really is no better place to plug in the headphones so it's understandable.

Rated 5 out of5 by fromAmazing design and qualityThe unboxing of my Core i7/512GB Surface Book was excellent. The unit arrived in a heavy duty white presentation box, completely pristine and perfect. The unit shipped with about 30% battery charge, so just enough to complete an initial setup without the AC adapter and still afford some time to tinker. Once setup complete, I immediately wanted to see just how well the undocking experience was, and after fighting with a ShellExperience component that was sitting in the background (a leftover from OOBE?), the Surface Book informed me that it was ready to undock. Click! A lift from the left, and the display easily lifted right off the keyboard, never missing a beat. And I really mean that - I was streaming a lossless WMA when I undocked, to see if it would hiccup, and it never missed a beat. Even after re-docking, the audio never so much as chirped. The video experience during an undocking/redocking was also outstanding, with the display only pausing for about 1 second, before it kept rolling. The audio never stopped. If you know anything about laptops and docking stations, you know that the process of docking and undocking is fairly traumatic to the OS, so the fact that this went through that process sight unseen is exceedingly rare. The physical hardware interconnection between the dock/keyboard and the tablet is magnetic, so when you request to undock, wires retract the magnets that grip onto metal tabs on the base. It's absolutely elegant, freakishly simple and fairly mind-blowing from an engineering perspective, considering these magnets are clearly strong enough to hold both parts together with genuine confidence.The audio quality is amazing for something that's only 1/4" thin. You WILL be impressed. The display resolution is fantastic, and ever bit just as peppy as Microsoft promised (even without the dGPU in the base!!). I can't wait to load this thing up and really put it to the test.If I had to complain about something, it would be the color of the keyboard keys. I would prefer something darker, to make it easier to see the letter printed on the keys - some additional contrast between the white backlight glow and the white-ish keys. Yes, there's a great keyboard backlight, but under the right lighting conditions, seeing the letters on the keys is somewhat difficult, because it's just a little too light-on-white to see under certain ambient lighting conditions. The only other thing that I thought was unexpected was the lack of ability to set screen brightness directly from the keyboard. Not even close to a problem; just an observation. I used my Surface Book at 50% brightness and it was plenty bright and comfortable on my eyes.There are two batteries in the Surface Book - one in the tablet, and one in the base with the discreet GPU, so the OS averages the two together when computing remaining battery life. Also, the OS tells you what the remaining life is in each battery, and also lets you know which battery is in use (usually both at the same time).The Surface Pen came to me with the battery already installed, so I didn't have to take it apart to add a battery. You pair the pen as part of the setup, so please don't expect it to work right away while setting up Windows 10 - the pairing process is covered several steps into the setup, then the pen works fine the rest of the time.Beyond that, there's only one critically important word of caution: Those of you with hairy legs might want to watch out for the dynamic fulcrum hinge as it eats leg hairs! Ouch!

Rated 4 out of5 by fromHow I fixed each surface book issueSo this is technically not a review but a list of problems I have faced since getting my surface book i7/16gb ram and how I fixed each problem. I am posting it here so people can access these info easily. It took me a long time searching for solutions online. Now my surface book is functioning perfectly.1. detach icon says it's detached when it's not and windows hello unable to turn on when you first turn your computer on after shutting off for a few hours. (shut down, not hibernate or sleep)Fix: go to power option in setting and disable fast start-up. It takes away the problem and only slow down the boot time by about half a second. Then hope that microsoft fix this issue if you really want the fast start-up feature2. Windows store won't download/update any appFix: I had to open another microsoft account and used it as my main account on surface book. For some reason it just wouldn't work with my original account. I've tried resetting, restoring, and returning my surface book to factory setting and it just won't work with my original microsoft account3. Cortana answering everything by saying "sorry there's a problem, try again later"Fix: same as #24. Pen button setting missing from the "Surface" appFix: download .iso file of windows 10 1511 from tech bench. Mount the .iso. Run the set up app and "upgrade" your windows 10 back to the November version. My guess is windows update was not able to push through some feature/driver that you have to do an manual install. This won't delete your file or the apps you already have installed. Your windows update will still work and help you get the latest version of windows, and your pen setting will still be there.Like I said in my previous review, these problems are clearly not surface book's fault but more of a windows 10 problem. I hope you find these helpful.

Rated 5 out of5 by fromThis is Exactly what I needI just purchased this product. I love the pen on it and have so many uses for it. Besides the pen is pure fun. The pen is high quality with a solid feel and the pressure sensitivity is unbelievable, I am able to write accurately very small letters and tilt it and use it however I want for drawing. This serves as a lap top that I can take with me on the fly. I love the way I can detach the screen from the Key board and use it as a tablet. The picture is gorgeous. The processor works at lightening speed. The size of the screen is perfect. The tract pad works great. It runs adobe suite and I can code web pages on it. Movies on it look fantastic. The keyboard has a back light and feels solid. But the best part about it is how much fun it is. It has caused one of my kids to take an interest in art.

Rated 5 out of5 by fromwould have give 3 out of 5I bumped my rating due to proactive bug fixes by microsoft. The display glitch and heat issues were bothering me, but after the 11/2 patch. I'm a happy camper.

Rated 5 out of5 by fromSuch an amazing product.Recently received my i7/16gb ram/1TB Surface book (A+ on the packaging) and can't explain the satisfaction.1) I'm a computer engineering major in college right now. Everybody in my classes - including teachers - is amazed with it. They think it looks excellent, but when i tell them the specs their jaw drops. I haven't received one negative comment.2) the keyboard experience is like no other. I've used macbooks and others and nothing compares.3) the transition from laptop to tablet or vice-versa is seamless.. I receive 0 lag or hiccups.4) The pc can boot up, sign me in with windows Hello (which is amazing), and be on my desktop in 6-10 seconds. Are you kidding me. My last laptop would take 10 minutes to get to the login page. Safe to say i needed an upgrade.5) So far everything I've used has been flawless - Steam, adobe apps, Eclipse, Jgrasp, multisim.. etc.Overall, I've had an amazing experience. If i had to choose between my surface book and my car, let's just say i would be saving a ton of money on gas. 100% 5 stars.

Rated 4 out of5 by fromGreat Product, Still Some Bugs; Excited for Gen2This is my 4th Surface product so I am definitely a fan of the product line and cant wait to see what they come out with next. I had a Surface book for about a month. It was an early X-mas gift to myself. I purchased the 512GB/i7/16GB/dGPU model hoping to replace my Surface Pro 3 and my Inspiron 15 laptop with a single device.I was very happy with the device overall and it very nearly succeeded here are my notes:Processor: According to PCBenchmark, the processor in the i7 Book is less powerful than the i7 3632QM that I have in my I have in my primary but my Inspiron is also a 6 pound anchor with the battery life to show for it.The dual core i7 6th gen didnt seem to have any struggles with my normal daily workloads though I admit I didnt really push the device with any gaming requirements or other processor heavy tasks such as audio/video re-encoding but overall I was quite happy with the processor performance.Battery Life: Its true the tablet alone only gets about 2 hours of battery life but I the device is light enough with the dock that I have no real problem using it in "docked-tablet mode" (docked with a reversed screen so that it looks like a thick tablet) as a general practice. In fact the full tablet mode and the reverse screen was probably my favorite feature of the device and why I chose it over the new XPS 15'sOn the dock, I was able to use the device to watch videos for almost 12 full hours while flying across country (fight 1 delayed: 3 hours in airport + 5 hours on plane, flight 2 delayed: 1.5 hours in airport + 2 hours on plane) and I still had an hour and a half battery life.This was with the screen set to "brighter" than suggested. Of course, I also killed all non-essentials (wifi, bluetooth, etc). The more you do, the less the battery life but I found even with wifi and more moderate loads, the battery life was excellent.Storage: 512 GB was great, I didnt need to spend the extra money for 1TB because I carry external harddrives with me regularly anyway and everything I have is backed up online anyway.Graphics: Built-in and discrete both seemed to perform admirably though I didnt really go and try to tax either one to find out how good or bad it would do. I did experience a few driver crashes when switching which was expected. My biggest graphics complaint is more with Windows than the Surface which has to do with the UHD display scaling. RDP (mstsc) and several other programs were nearly unusable due to scaling issues; this is systemic to 4k displays though but it is disappointing we still dont have a "real" fix.Issues (and things I would like to see in Gen 2):1) Freezes, blank screens and display crashes. This was the primary reason I had to return it. In a month of using it, I experienced more freezes, lockups and reboots than I've had in a long time. I suspect its due to the dual GPU as often times the display driver would crash when switching modes and recover just fine. Admittedly, I have the a similar "screen goes blank/black" issue occasionally with my Inspiron 15 with dual GPUs but recovery on my Inspiron rarely requires a reboot as putting the device to sleep is enough for it to recover.For an expensive device that I had hoped to have be a total device replacement, the lost work and productivity every time this happened was just no tolerable.2) Sleep mode, battery and security. I noticed quite a few times that closing the screen failed to put the device to sleep correctly and it would drain the battery and/or generate a lot of heat in my bag causing the fan to spin up and draining the battery. Also a lot of times when waking from sleep, the device login page would only cover the center portion of the screen and what I was working on was visible. Not only that, but it would occasionally allow me to login without a password which was a real security issue/concern for me.3) No External storage in Tablet mode. The 512GB was the right amount of storage for me but one of my bigger complaints was the move of the USB and SD card reader to the dock. I have a 128GB microsd card in my Surface Pro 3 and I found an adapter that would allow me to make the microsd card fit a full size slot and be discrete (it doesnt stick out of the device the same way a full sized card normally would and is flush) which is great but because the SD card reader is on the Dock and not the tablet and microsoft decided not to include one on the tablet portion, if I wasn't docked, I didnt have access to the SD card. As the SD cards arent really intended for the many writes of hard-drives, I keep a lot of read only things (such as music and video files) on my SD card that I would want access to in both docked and tablet modes.4) No USB in tablet mode. This sort of bleeds over from the storage issue but its less of an issue because even the Surface Pro 3 USB port didnt supply enough power by itself to power a external mechanical drive so I needed a source of power on the road for my mechanical drives though it could handle SSD.That being said, the lack of even a single USB port on the table was disappointing as again, I carry a lot of data on external hard drives that I cant access outside of docked mode; while storage wise that wasn't too big of a deal, it also means not being able to use any other external accessories in tablet only mode.5) No 3G/LTE. Still would love to see a 3G/LTE version or maybe failing a version with it built in, Microsoft can spearhead development of a new USB dongle that isnt as large and unwieldy as the current gen devices. I want to be able to use my surface device the way it was demoed when the Pro 3 came out; which is to say that I can get live updates of OneNote documents (things like grocery lists) wherever I am but I cant do that unless I have internet connectivity which to me means having 3G/LTE. There isnt open access internet everywhere and Im also not about to connect to every open access point in the world either. This has long been one of my big complaints with the Surface lineup.6) Tablet charging. I know you can charge the tablet directly with the power adapter which means the interface connector between the dock and the tablet supports power transfer and maybe it already does this (it didnt seem like it did but I didnt try to test it either); it'd be great if the dock battery could be used to recharge the tablet battery. If I use the tablet for an hour, dock it and put it in my bag for an hour and then come back to the tablet, it'd be great when I pull it out again to find a fully charged tablet battery.I think this was a great first iteration and though it has its bugs, its an excellent starting point and Im excited for Gen2 which I hope will definitely be the replacement device I wanted.
