    A closer look at Microsoft's new Surface Book laptop

    Posted: 06 Oct 2015
    When I reviewed Microsoft's Surface 3 tablet earlier this year I simply concluded that Microsoft should make a laptop. I can't believe I'm typing this, but the Surface Book laptop now exists. I got a chance to take a closer look at the Surface Laptop during Microsoft's Windows 10 devices event in New York City this morning. It's gorgeous.

    Microsoft wants its Surface Book to be a MacBook Pro killer, and while it's too early to say whether it is, it's off to a great start. Like the Surface Pro 3 before it, Microsoft is using magnesium on the Surface Book. It's a laptop, but also a tablet. Like most laptops, it has a hinge. Microsoft's hinge is insane. It's like a snake and it folds into place to let you adjust the display viewing angle. The trick of the Surface Book is that everything, apart from the Nvidia graphics chip, is contained within the screen. That means you can hit a button and it magically detaches from the display.

    Sure sounds good, except the $ 1500.00 price.

    GPU in the Base? Switchable graphics with the high power GPU in the keyboard?

    If I were to get one (and I do want one), I'd have to go with at least the i7 with the 256gig SSD drive; but good god the pricing on the high end side...

    Anyway if I do get one, it'll be a birthday present to me in February. By then we'll know what bugs and issues this thing has... and if that'll change my mind. I've actually been looking for something like this anyway and I like what I see thus far.

    I guess I was expecting something lower in price for a company just getting into this sector, but I'll wait and see if Microsoft rethinks this pricing scheme.

    For those of you in the US you can pre-order here - Buy Surface Book - Microsoft Store

    Hopefully it wont be too long before they release it in the UK.

    Not really; they already had the Surface Pro, and if you looked at the price and specs on those, these prices aren't terribly out of line, especially when you consider what these things do, and the tech used.

    That said, yeah, the i7 models are expensive.

    Those prices are nuts. Best of luck at those price points.
