Commercial Microsoft Surface Book

The ultimate laptop

Incredibly powerful and meticulously crafted, Surface Book is a revolution in laptop design. The detachable 13.5“ PixelSense Display is optimized for Pen and touch and has higher resolution than MacBook Pro 13”.1 With the full power of a high performance laptop and the versatility of a tablet, Surface Book gives you everything you need to work with professional-grade software, anywhere you want.

Commercial Microsoft Surface Book

Built for performance

Surface Book is built to run all the professional-grade software you need for engineering, design, and everything in-between. Intel Core processors have twice the power of a MacBook Pro 13”2 with an optional NVIDIA GeForce dGPU for unmatched graphics performance. And up to 12 hours of battery life for video playback3 keeps you going all day, every day, so you can bring your work anywhere.

Commercial Microsoft Surface Book

Meticulously crafted and built to last

Surface Book was carefully designed to be a powerful laptop that is thin enough to take anywhere without losing an ounce of performance. It's built with a light magnesium chassis and an innovative Dynamic Fulcrum Hinge to keep it balanced at any angle.

Commercial Microsoft Surface Book

Detachable PixelSense Display, with Pen and touch

The 13.5” PixelSense Display on Surface Book is simply stunning, while working perfectly with Pen and touch. The 6 million pixels give you unbeatable resolution and color rivaling real life to bring your creations to life. Detach the display to transform Surface Book into a thin and light Intel Core i5/i7 PC, that runs professional grade software. Surface Pen has 1024 levels of pressure sensitivity and an eraser on the other end, so handwritten notes on your screen are just like pen on paper.

Watch, draw, or design

Once detached, flip the screen 180 degrees and reattach it to the Integrated Keyboard to present, watch movies, or design with Surface Pen. And you’re only a click away from the Windows Ink workspace, with quick access to sticky notes, a blank page for sketching, or a quick screenshot that you can mark-up and share.

Commercial Microsoft Surface Book

Engineered for professional-grade software

Surface Book speeds through intensive professional software, like SolidWorks 3D CAD, AutoCAD Revit, and Adobe Premiere Pro. With the power to run this software anywhere, you’re no longer chained to your desk. Now you can create anywhere and everywhere, and the latest version of Windows 10 will always include up-to-date security and protection.

Great except for 1 flaw

I have owned this device (i5/256gb/dGPU) for about 6 months now and everything is great except for 1 flaw, which is the way the screen is manufactured. I have had this device replaced twice now and all 3 devices have light bleed (the light bleed is in different areas for each device). This light bleed problem is the backlight coming through the edge of the screen in certain areas and makes your screen have a yellowish tint in those areas. If you are watching a movie with black bars at the top and bottom of the screen, you will notice this; you'll notice it even more when it's on maximum brightness. This light bleed problem probably has to do with the adhesion material that is used on the screen. The technicians at the Microsoft store said that there's nothing they could do about it, and I just have to deal with it. I mean for a device this expensive, this problem should not occurred. If you are buying this device, check for this problem before you leave the store.

Does it all from main computer to tablet

I run my business with a Surface Book. Powerful enough to handle any task, yet flexible too. If I need to use it purely as a tablet I can detach the tablet from the base, or if I need longer battery life reverse it on the base. I replaced a MacBook Pro with this Surface Book and don't miss the Mac. When I do use a Mac laptop these days I'm surprised how often I want to manipulate the screen using touch, only to find that they can't, of course, do that (yet). All Surfaces cannot be compared to an iPad, so I don't know why people do that. Surface is a full-blown computer that also works as a tablet when you need it; if you don't need a computer then there are other, cheaper, tablet-only options available to you.

Packed with the Latest and Greatest of Technology

This is a loaner that a friend of mine is letting me use until he replaces the Ipad Pro top of the line wifi plus cellular 13.9' 256 gb machine that he accidently broke when an accident occurred he immediately offered me the Microsoft Surface Pro to use in place of my long loved Ipad pro experience. I was not expecting this to be better than my ipad pro that is for sure but I must say in my opinion it is in a lot of ways. I can only hope that my friend doesn't fix mine anytime soon or replace the ipad if he does I'm going to get this Microsoft Surface pro instead.I like it that much..

Great Design - AWFUL PRODUCT

The design and flexibility of the surface books is great however my experience with the actual unit and my failed attempts to obtain a working unit have been the worst experience I've ever had with any electronic device. My first unit had a fatal error while updating to Windows 10 on day 1, my second replacement unit had a faulty second battery which didn't charge and couldn't be resolved after ~6 hours of Microsoft working on it remotely, my third replacement unit had exactly the same issue as the 2nd unit with a faulty battery which Microsoft took another ~6 hours to try to fix but still failed. In the end I'm left with 3 faulty units and 30-40 hours of my own personal time spent on a 'high end laptop / tablet' either chasing down a replacement unit, troubleshooting with Microsoft help, or on phone calls trying to find any resolution or courtesy assistance for my time with no success. After all of this Microsoft's can only say sorry and recommendation to me to 'wait another couple of weeks for the new shipment and try a 4th unit'. I'm beyond frustrated with this ordeal! Although I'm giving as much patience as I can there is no excuse for this with what is meant to be the industries top laptop / tablet. Very very disappointed and left with no options besides frustration and further waiting.

Display adaptor is flakey, but great machine

Good for Visual Studio. I could use 32GB of ram, but max is 16. I am a bit disappointed in the screen driver. Sometimes it doesn't dock properly, re-docking usually helps. sometimes the screen doesn't come up but the detach button will reactivate the screen. I wish there were more accessories, like an external battery for when I am traveling international. It is much more expensive than comparable products.

This thing Rocks!

Core i7's make for a super fast computing experience. On/off quickly. Programs load fast. Engineering of Book with its detachable screen is fantastic. I'm able to use this for presentations, managing databases, and road warrior work with my VPN Connection. Waiting for the 'Beam Me Up, Scotty' app.

Understand what you're buying

I have owned every surface product and each edition has improved to a higher level. competitors have not been able to keep up. the book is leaps and bounds above any of other devices I own (iPad Pro, iMac 2014, and MacBook Pro 2014) and the price is comparable. This is truly a 'you get what you pay for' product. If you want a premium product this is it. Also, included in my experience was premium support. I cannot speak for others. However, what I have experienced is diligence and ownership. With any issue I've experienced with any of my surface problems, the staff owned it and fixed it. even if there was no immediate answer, there was always an immediate resolution. the stores staff have great personality and willingness to take care of the customer. lastly, don't confuse excellence with perfection. this is a great device but not a perfect device. so if you go into it looking for perfection its not going to satisfy you. but if you're willing to get through the updates and occasional bug, I'd suggest this is top of its class.

Great laptop!

I've purchased the computer about 2 weeks now and might I say, it's one of the best laptops I've had. I love the design and the fact that it can be easily converted into a tablet. Some persons complain about taking apart but it really isn't any hassle. The display is clean and bright and it's processing speed is fast enough for me. The only downside is that sometimes the pen doesn't sense what I press I now certain apps so I just resort to using my finger. All in all it's a great computer!!
