    Hey guys I just got home from BB with my new Surface Book and they had the same deal that I see advertised on Amazon but I see the Amazon site calls it the updated model and now I really don't see that advertised from BB. I don't even want to open this box if it isn't the newer model so how can I tell just looking at the outside packaging?

    I checked the model number on Amazon and it is slightly different.

    I can't remember the look of the box for my Surface Book with Performance Base, but I believe it was indeed clearly marked. I wouldn't open that box. Worth going back or waiting for.

    I was at BB yesterday and asked if they had the Performance Base models on sale and they checked and the prices were retail. They had great deals on the older models from last year. I'd suspect that you ended up with an older model.

    What deal did you get and for which model?

    Anyone know what Go RAM is? i.e 8GB/Go RAM
    I assume it's a distinction of the size since they also use that nomenclature on the storage 256GB/Go.

    Lawyers are ruining everything.

    It's multi-lingual. The French call them octets instead of bytes.
