    Great laptop for creators. I'm an Architecture student and the Surface Book2 works with revit and autocad flawlessly. The surface pen and laptop mode are great for sketching and taking notes.

    The Microsoft Surface Book Pro 2 is great for starting college. The student can bring it with them to their classes and take notes easily. Very useful tool.

    After doing research on many 3-in-1's we are happy with our purchase of the Surface Book 2. Bought for my daughter so she could get use to drawing on a tablet before she heads to college in the fall. She has enjoyed using the Surface Book 2 for more than just drawing. The one thing that would have made this purchase better is if it came with the pen.

    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.

    The Surface Book 2 is everything I've wanted in a lap top - a tablet and computer. The inking and writing capabilities will serve my transition from full time consulting to budding artist. The wide selection of free and for purchase apps is great and I look forward to learning more about this great Book 2 at the classes Best Buy offers, in fact, the one taught by Lee Wright yesterday put me at another level of performance . Thanks Lee!

    After debating (and saving) for six months, I finally purchased the Surface Book 2! Despite my previous laptop holding 650GB, I opted for the 256GB for a few reasons... 1. @@@@@@@ Save money. I purchased a 400GB micro SD for additional storage to help save some money. 2. @@@@@@@ Of all my files, I frequently use maybe...2 or 3 folders? Everything else stays on my 4TB external desktop hard drive, so I really have no need (currently) to dish out another $400 for the 516GB This laptop types flawlessly, which is fantastic for typing class notes and papers! I'm in love with the screen, and the fact that it is detachable is wondrous for late-night reading in bed (a.k.a. homework assignments!! @@@@@@@ In addition to wanting a laptop that is great for productivity, I also wanted one that was capable for gaming. I'm not a hard-core gamer, as I've not the time, but I do enjoy playing Final Fantasy XIV which the Surface Book 2 plays like a dream. With how well it handles gaming, I sort of wish I purchased the 516GB, but until I game a bit more frequently, I'm quite content with the 256GB + 400GB micro SD. I do wish that the laptop came with the pen, though it is understandable as to why it is sold separately. I'm looking forward to purchasing the pen, mostly to use for paper-editing. The Surface Book 2 is the lightest of the laptops I was looking at (HP Spectre, HP Envy, and Razer Blade 15), which is great for travelling. I'm extremely satisfied with my purchase after eyeing it for six months, and I got it just in time for the new semester to begin. In all honesty, I think my next laptop after this will also be by Microsoft. I think I've finally found the PC company I like best.

    I was a die hard Surface Pro user looking to upgrade my older machine. While the Surface Book 2 is nowhere near as portable it is still lightweight, relatively thin, and has the muscle to play the games I like to play. @@@@@@@@ Fortnite, Battletech, Champions Online). As a teacher I love that the 15" screen is large enough that I can work on two different apps snapped to either side of the screen and not have to zoom in like I did on my old tablet. And Windows Hello is spoiling me. I like that I can simply sit down and look at the screen and be logged in while never having to worry about a kid watching me log in and getting my password. The added cost of a touchscreen was something I wasn't sure I wanted to pay, but I am happy I did. Quickly zooming into different pictures or trying out interactive SMART Note files before I go live with them with my class, what I thought was an expensive luxury is now something I can't imagine living without. Battery life is perfect for a 12 hour day as a teacher. Enter grades while listening to music, running PowerPoint presentations or SMART Note files, playing videos or songs, and emails, all through wifi.
