The unboxing of my Core i7/512GB Surface Book was excellent. The unit arrived in a heavy duty white presentation box, completely pristine and perfect. The unit shipped with about 30% battery charge, so just enough to complete an initial setup without the AC adapter and still afford some time to tinker. Once setup complete, I immediately wanted to see just how well the undocking experience was, and after fighting with a ShellExperience component that was sitting in the background (a leftover from OOBE?), the Surface Book informed me that it was ready to undock. Click! A lift from the left, and the display easily lifted right off the keyboard, never missing a beat. And I really mean that - I was streaming a lossless WMA when I undocked, to see if it would hiccup, and it never missed a beat. Even after re-docking, the audio never so much as chirped. The video experience during an undocking/redocking was also outstanding, with the display only pausing for about 1 second, before it kept rolling. The audio never stopped. If you know anything about laptops and docking stations, you know that the process of docking and undocking is fairly traumatic to the OS, so the fact that this went through that process sight unseen is exceedingly rare. The physical hardware interconnection between the dock/keyboard and the tablet is magnetic, so when you request to undock, wires retract the magnets that grip onto metal tabs on the base. It's absolutely elegant, freakishly simple and fairly mind-blowing from an engineering perspective, considering these magnets are clearly strong enough to hold both parts together with genuine confidence. The audio quality is amazing for something that's only 1/4" thin. You WILL be impressed. The display resolution is fantastic, and ever bit just as peppy as Microsoft promised (even without the dGPU in the base!!). I can't wait to load this thing up and really put it to the test. If I had to complain about something, it would be the color of the keyboard keys. I would prefer something darker, to make it easier to see the letter printed on the keys - some additional contrast between the white backlight glow and the white-ish keys. Yes, there's a great keyboard backlight, but under the right lighting conditions, seeing the letters on the keys is somewhat difficult, because it's just a little too light-on-white to see under certain ambient lighting conditions. The only other thing that I thought was unexpected was the lack of ability to set screen brightness directly from the keyboard. Not even close to a problem; just an observation. I used my Surface Book at 50% brightness and it was plenty bright and comfortable on my eyes. There are two batteries in the Surface Book - one in the tablet, and one in the base with the discreet GPU, so the OS averages the two together when computing remaining battery life. Also, the OS tells you what the remaining life is in each battery, and also lets you know which battery is in use (usually both at the same time). The Surface Pen came to me with the battery already installed, so I didn't have to take it apart to add a battery. You pair the pen as part of the setup, so please don't expect it to work right away while setting up Windows 10 - the pairing process is covered several steps into the setup, then the pen works fine the rest of the time. Beyond that, there's only one critically important word of caution: Those of you with hairy legs might want to watch out for the dynamic fulcrum hinge as it eats leg hairs! Ouch!

The Surface Book issues are growing for me. Here is what's happening now:
-The Display Driver issue is becoming more constant
-My WiFi Card has started to crash and in order to get it working you have to completely uninstall the card through device manager and reboot the system. I have had to do this 4 times now.
-My Bluetooth mouse will not stay connected and now will not pair.
-After disconnecting my Surface Book from my Bluetooth Bose Speaker the internal speakers will not work without a system reboot.
-I had to turn off Auto Dim because I was getting the color temp issues while scrolling. This computer is for my work and I cannot spend hours on the phone with support. I cannot drive to the store and wait for hours for another one (if they have any) that will most likely have the same issues. I cannot refresh the PC and reload all of my business software over and over. I just need this to work. I have been following Microsoft and getting really excited about what they are trying to achieve. After this experience I think I am out. I was thinking about leaving iPhone and getting the new Lumia, now not so much. I understand that no company is perfect. I also work in retail on the luxury side of things know that people pay a premium for 3 reasons : 1.) Quality 2.) Aesthetics 3.) Experience This Surface Book nails the Aesthetics but fails on Quality and Experience. So sadly, I think I am going back to Apple. I had a MacBook Pro that had no issues whatsoever for several years. I opened the lid and got things done. I didn't spend my day searching forums for answers to make my productivity tool work. I really hope the leadership at Microsoft learns from this. When you get into the premium game you have to deliver or you will be out quickly. There is a certain expectation that accompanies a premium price tag.

Amazing Assistant

By

Comments about Microsoft Surface Book Silver 128GB i5 Tablet Computer:

I bought the SURFACE Bok to assist in an inventory of my family's homestead. I needed something I could take with me into attic or barn with a good battery life. I have found myself using it more & more for everything I used to use my Desk Top or Telephone for. Thru One Note I can write stuff onto a web page & add it to the items as I find them, & in its tablet form it is quite fantastic. I can take a picture or draw or type or tabulate & make notes about which corner of the family, & which century! each item is as I find it, & where I find it. Couldn't begin to do this without this device. I believe I can also send chunks of data to individuals as I find them via the web. Its versatility is so vast I'm sure there is more it can do that I simply haven't found yet. It does have an annoying habit of throwing up the touch keyboard even though it's own is still attached.

Will not replace anything!

By 

from Undisclosed

Comments about Microsoft Surface Book Silver 128GB i5 Tablet Computer:

I bought this product in April, and have only recently started attempting to use it for full functionality. Microsoft claims it can replace your desktop. This product works fine as a glorified web browser, but when tasked with actual work, like rendering or playing basic video games, it overheats non-stop. Its specifications are good but it cannot operate at anywhere close to the advertised functionality. This is not a good replacement for any of your devices. Microsoft should have stayed in the software business and not gone into hardware.

Poor Qualities

Comments about Microsoft Surface Book Silver 128GB i5 Tablet Computer:

Screen stopped responding to touch. Doesn't wake from sleep. Battery life low. Heats up very very quickly. Oh and again...the screen does not RESPOND. No matter what I do the touch screen does not work even the PC itself says that it should be working fine.

Beautiful in general, problematic in some details

By 

from Undisclosed

Comments about Microsoft Surface Book Silver 128GB i5 Tablet Computer:

*Beautiful color properties, resolution and brightness of the screen; *Windows hello recognizes the face fantastically; *Touchscreen and Surface pen allow me to work without the mouse. It also gives me possibility to use papers for doing calculations and making notes: OneNote, Drawboard PDF are beautiful; *Great lifetime: notebook works during up to 13 hours from one charging. For example, by using Wolfram Mathematica, Firefox and LaTeX compiler I've discharged it within 11 hours; *Good performance: although it doesn't allow to play games smoothly (I can't play 2007 Crysis on highest specs), it gives usage of virtual machines, web-browsers with many opened tabs and Photoshop simultaneously without any issues (I use i7 16 Gb version); *Cool design. Be sure that pretty girls will pay attention on Surface Book owner. Although these advantages, this notebook have disadvantages. They are not huge, but makes me feel annoyed sometimes; *Bad coating. Initially matted corpse loses this property even with very accurate usage of notebook (I carry it in the special custom-made (leather, felt) case). *Soft magnesium metal. After taking the notebook in the hand after a significant (not excessive) contraction the bent has appeared on its corpse; *Wheezing left dynamic. This issue appeared, more or less on all Surface devices which I've owhed (SP 3, SP 4, SB); *Oleophobic coating defect. In my experience, among Surface devices this issue is happened only on SB (I've got two units). Precisely, on some part of the screen frame there are areas from which oiled spots from fingers look different and are hard to clean (in compare to "normal" areas); *Program part: even after all Anniversary Update, Intel Beta driver etc I can't make Firefox run as smooth as on old SP 3. Video playing eats many CPU resources (up to 100% for 4k video on YouTube), while on SP3 it eats up to 20%. *Center of mass isn't balanced. The screen part wobbles when I write down text with the stylus.

I got my product about a month ago for school, and found that I have been using it for my everyday life. It has made everything easier and the experience if using this device has been outstanding. Just one thing, it has no video memory which is really sucky because I cant play Xbox games on here.

Disappointing

By 

from Undisclosed

Comments about Microsoft Surface Book Silver 128GB i5 Tablet Computer:

I bought this product for my dad last year, and it was not a successful experience at all. I thought it would be perfect, but when I got it, I couldn't login in because it already had an account registered. Somehow I managed to pass it with the help of GOOGLE. As I just about to relax and get over with this login problem, my dad told me that he found the battery is dropping like real quick even after several times of full re-charging. AND one last disappointment---the connection of the charger is not always reliable, as it is extremely unstable. After all of this mess, I realized that this product could only be an unsuccessful renovating one. Unlucky for me and my dad,because we paid the for a brand-new Surface Book and instead got an old one.

Should have returned it when I had a chance

By 

from Undisclosed

Comments about Microsoft Surface Book Silver 128GB i5 Tablet Computer:

My first experience was not great. I bought it and had the person at the Microsoft store set it up for me. He noticed there was an issue with it detaching so I had to return it because the screen was not detaching correctly. So no problem they switched it out for me. Then after that I thought I could go home and everything would be fine. Once I got home I tried to use it and the same issue occurred. I could not detach the screen. So I had to drive all the way back to the Microsoft store where I got it switched out again. It worked fine for a little bit then I realized when I detached the screen from the keyboard and reattached it the keyboard would not work so I either would have to attempt to detach it with the onscreen button which seldom worked or I had to completely restart it. The battery life is not what I thought it would be. It lasts much less than I thought. I do really enjoy the responsiveness of the pen and the note taking abilities. However I would not recommend the laptop and given the chance again I would buy one of the surface pros instead because of the cost and simple keyboard that just pops off unlike this annoying issue with disconnecting.

Best laptop I've ever had!!

Comments about Microsoft Surface Book Silver 128GB i5 Tablet Computer:

It has been a year of using the Surface Book and i have no complains it is smooth, easy to use, sturdy and it even survived a motorcycle crash unlike the bike itself... although I even fell on the laptop. I love the battery life! I go out in the morning come back late home after working on only battery life it still has enough for me to run some tasks before it will ask me to plug it in. on average I get about 12-14 hours... yes I'm not joking. The pen is good a bit big but I love the fact that I can switch heads for different writing feeling. Resolution is amazing! Keyboard feels like the real deal and the touch pad is almost as functional as the mac one.
