Not only does it look sexy but it is exactly what I need to do the multiple tasks I work with. Awesome!
This laptop makes my work life easier. I look forward to finding out what more it can do. I am well pleased.
I've been a Mac guy for the last 15 years or so but I had to get a laptop with Windows 10 for work. So I decided to get this model since it has the 16gb of RAM. It handles everything I throw at it so far. Powers multiple monitors, has no problem running multiple applications with lots of tabs open.
I love the matte black look. Best looking laptop I've ever seen. The glossy screen takes a little getting used to but it's growing on me. I like the keyboard/touchpad...no issues there.
I do wish it had just one more USB port. And the battery doesn't last nearly as long as advertised. Not the biggest deal in the world for me personally but really my only complaints.
Each day I learn more and more about Windows and I'm liking what it has to offer. I have no doubt this laptop will last me many years.
After some disaster quality control experiences with 4 other major laptop brands. I finally switched to the surface laptop.
A few highlights:
1. Most importantly at least for my own experience: Quality Control. I am tired of getting new devices with QC issues but the surface laptop I received is perfect.
2. Nice screen color and resolution.
3. Excellent build quality.
4. One of the best keyboard and touchpad combination on the market.
A few compromises:
1. Screen is too glossy to use in a sunny day even for in door use.
2. Power connector is awkward. Although it's magnetic, it's still too loose.
3. Too few ports. Only 1 usb-a + 1 usb-c. Even 1 more usb-c would make it a much more versatile device. It would be even better if it has a sd-card reader.
This is without doubt the most beautiful computer I've ever seen. It is solid, fast, light -- in short, perfect for a new college student. The keyboard has a great feel and the touch pad is large and sensitive. The touch screen display is not quite 4k resolution but will be fine for most people. We've had this computer for about a month now and so far my daughter is ecstatic. You should definitely check out this machine if you're in the market for a smaller lightweight laptop.
What I wanted from a laptop was it’s portability and it’s functionality, and this definitely delivers. But I have one problem with the Surface is mine came with software bug and it kept black screening when blue light filter was on. I went with Geek squad and they “fixed” the problem but it was only temporary because the black screen returned once again. Not sure what the problem is but it seems that it’s common with the Microsoft Surface. Overall the laptop works great and is pretty powerful for how small and compact it is.
Purchased this to be able to work from home. LOVE this sand color! And of course Microsoft... uncluttered screen and extremely well functioning. The keyboard on this feels so much better than any laptop I’ve worked with. So thrilled with this purchase!
I bought the Surface Book 3 13.5” (SB3) because it's very beautiful, compact, well crafted, powerful, has a great display, many ports, and runs very fast - can't complain and couldn't ask for more! The selling point for me is the fact that the screen can be detached and used as a tablet. I am using this laptop for my business , love office 365. Very helpful with meetings teams and zoom. there's no other device on the market like a Surface Book.
We purchased this to use in our office running Adobe creative suites and other graphic and marketing programs. Have been very impressed with the overall performance of the unit in terms of opening up and running Photoshop applications along with Adobe illustrator. Has handled everything we've thrown at it with ease. Build quality is on par with the MacBook. Overall performance maybe slightly less but for half the cost I am very happy with this compacts laptop.

Even though you may over clock at some points for gaming, I play FFXIV for hours with no issues.
I would suggest closing applications just to be safe, but it upholds to the highest graphics with ease.
It also has no issue with photoshop or blender - or no issues that I have found.
