    There are so many extras to this laptop - the flexibility of the keyboard section to screen is awesome and that was one of the major problems with my last laptop. - I bought the surface pen too, so that has it's own great review as well, but definitely makes this laptop more easy to use and entertaining - long battery life

    Very expensive but unique in its qualities and quirks. Solid build, great battery life, amazing screen and keyboard, and the detachability (is that even a word) makes it a fun and versatile device to use.

    Like that I can remove the screen from the keyboard and use it as a stand alone touch screen tablet. Two batteries (one in screen, other in keyboard). has a long battery life.

    I mainly use my Surface Book for video conferencing, presentations, animation, design and leisure (movies, social media, etc.). The battery life is amazing, it's incredibly user friendly/intuitive and customization is excellent. I also travel a lot and it's on the heavier side but it doesn't bother me too much.

    If you prefer windows but are tired of alot of the issues that arise, invest in a Microsoft surface. You'll still have the occasional hiccup but things run way smoother, it looks and feels great and the tablet screen is great. My only gripe is the battery is quick to drain when in tablet mods but its understandably due to the size of the screen. When docked with the keyboard base it gets great battery life.

    I bought this for work to get the versatility of a laptop and a tablet. It works great! I have the processing power of most desktops (when attached to keyboard) and all day battery life. The arc mouse and surface pen are excellent additions as well.

    I use it for medical school and I LOVE IT. Battery life is amazing especially. I occasionally use it as a tablet which is nice, but I don't use that feature as often as I thought I would. A 15" tablet is big and heavy, but not as heavy as it would be still attached to keyboard.

    Great, if not the best, 2-in-1 laptops on the market. Has a graphics card, enough storage (plus more from onedrive), great battery life and practical surface pen. Only drawback is the price which I get is steep. Luckily, I was able to purchase this laptop during a promotion.

    This is a fantastic laptop / hybrid - Tech Review

    This is the Surface Book that I wanted when they first released it in 2015. The issues that plagued the first Surface Book are gone now. This has long battery life, around 8-10 hours of real use. The 15" version has a dedicated GPU that is powerful enough to edit videos and play games when you have some down time. The 15" (almost 4K) display is bright and has excellent color reproduction. It is still light enough to use as a tablet and has better battery life on it's own now (around 3-4 hours). The overall system is 4.2 lbs and is extremley light for a 15" laptop. The speakers are loud and full and always face you since they are in the display. Ports are excellent and include; full sd card reader, 2 USB 3.1 ports,the surface power input that doubles with the surface dock, and a USB C port (lacking thunderbolt 3). The operating system is Windows Pro 10 and works great with the new Ink features. The new surface pen (not included) supports over 4,000 levels of sensitivity and has side angle support with some apps. The new keyboard feels snappier and not as mushy and has 1.55mm of travel. The track pad is glass and is the best of any Windows laptops. I would highly recommend this laptop to anyone. It can handle your work and play with all day battery life and power with the internal GPU. -CoachCWC

    This laptop is pricey and a bit large and heavy. However, it is ergonomic, fast, with enough ports to get my tasks done. The pen works great. The battery power is amazing. I can go a full day without needing a charge.

    I upgraded from a SurfaceBook 1 and it's what I'm used to, a great laptop all around. Smooth with great looks and beautiful screen. Battery is great when used as laptop and a lil disappointing in tablet form. If I could change one thing I'd ask for a much larger harddrive. After installing my usual apps and Gears Of War 4 I've got only 45 gbs left. It's not so bad if you utilize a portable ssd.
