I bought my Surface Book last year and am generally happy with (although it did have issues initially). I thought that either the Apple or MS Event would make me envious of potential new products released. However it had the opposite impact, and made me appreciate my SB more. With the MS event, I thought they'd refresh the processors in the SB, add a USB-C port, and maybe improve the graphics. They did the last part BUT are changing $500 more for it. So if I was buying the SB today, I would still order the one I got. As for the Apple event, they did improve the design (weight, dimensions, features, etc.), BUT they upped the price of all 13" Macbook Pros to SB levels, and none have a dGPU. Therefore, even thought it's a year later, I would still choose the same model laptop as I bought. I'll wait till next year to see what the SB2 has in store.
