Hope it lasts a long time!
Comments about Microsoft Surface Book Silver 512GB i7 Tablet Computer:
Bought 11/10/2016. Model I7, 16G, 512G. First impression out of the box was "it is heavy"! Display is beautiful but legacy programs with small fonts are not legible. Running the screen at 225% instead of the recommended 200%. Handled everything I threw at it so far. Removing the display and reattaching works well but not with a GPS sensor in a USB port. That will cause a restart to hang up. Haven't tried it with other USB accessories. Overall I am satisfied with the device but can't say I am WOWED by it.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

What works out of the box!
The review is an openbox offline Surface Book Performance Base. Here is what I did to test: Installing Acrobat DC and printing 35 pages w/consultant drawings to PDF. Wow, I mean the Book did the job in about 1.5x times my workstation. This is very intensive AutoCAD Plots so good job MS. Photoshop Pen & Eraser are a great combo and run smoothly, some delay on long fluid strokes but very accurate and precise in pointer precision. SketchUp works great. 3DS MAX works great, renders with Nvidia Mental Ray FAST. AutoCAD Architecture runs well & plotting to PDF also. Revit works very well. I test what I have at work, so not demo files, it is running fay beyond expectations. Like the Book is such a workhorse. Absolutely everything I have done works awesomely well. Everyone at Microsoft, has worked to make this machine great and that demonstrates in the flying acceleration of speed, productivity, and performance. You want to render and look like the future? Get the Surface Book w/Performance Base. Surface Book Help Tip for those having display drivier graphic issues: NVIDIA Control Panel > Manage 3D Settings (Left Side) > Global Settings (Tab) Preferred graphics processor: High-performance NVIDIA processor.

Horrible Do not Buy!!!
By B Jun
I preordered the Surface Book Performance Base. I7, 16gb, 256gb memory and it's nothing but constant problem. Constantly gives me a blue screen with "error", restarts on its own, and it takes forever to start up. It will be stuck on the greeting page and whenever I finally get to login after 5-10 minutes of waiting, I have to wait another 5-10minutes before anything opens. And I don't even have anything installed but Microsoft Office products so far. I will be returning this. Microsoft led me down big time yet again. I seriously despise Apple products but I might be forced to go to that route now.
