    What if Microsoft had waited?

    The SB was the machine that brought me as a long time Apple laptop purchaser to the platform. I got mine on launch day, and while it's pretty solid now and I really like the machine as it is today the early experience was definitely sub par. I'm going to be a little less likely to trust any of...

    Glad I decided to keep my Surface Book

    I had a fair few of the issues reported here on the forum and I came very, very close to returning mine while it was still in the return window. With that said, MS has done a pretty good job in pushing out updates and fixes and I'm now very happy with the SB. It's my first Windows laptop for...

    11 tips for Surface Book/Surface 4

    Hi all, first post here as I just got my i7/512gb Surface Book yesterday. I'm very, very happy with it so far and fortunately haven't experienced any of the issues that a few other new owners have posted. I was always a big Mac guy and this machine pulled me over from what would have been a...
