    Please don’t buy any surface products, software has many issues, they update it regularly, whenever new updates comes the system fails in many other hardware things…for me in last update and the keyboard and mouse stopped working…customer service is worst. Doesn’t worth the money we pay to those people!!!!!

    0:10 It's a laptop of surface product so you said it's a surface laptop. But after one and half years MS introduced surface laptop so the name is overriding.

    Thee is a reason why they left a big gap in the surface so tat the fingerprints on the keys don't touch the screen. when I open my laptop I see key prints on my screen. I like how they used the big gap to not have finger prints from the keys touch the screen.

    What? This review was kinda silly and petty. If you're between buying a Microsoft Surface Book and a Macbook Pro, then go with the Surface book! You get way more for your money.

    Isn't the weight equivalent with the macbook pros? Yet macbook pros don't even have touch screen.

    I have to agree it is a little strange how it becomes a tablet and how there's a gap when it is closed.

    Oh no, he actually has to put some effort everyday by cleanings small piece of equipment that hardly takes a few minutes. Man this apple fanboy really hates that Microsoft made a laptop that whoops the MacBook.

    yeah every laptop wobbles when you touch the screen while it's open, so don't fault Microsoft and their hinge for something that all laptops do no matter what type of hinge they have

    I agree that you're biased. the gap in the hinge is to protect the screen from the keys, or dust, grease from the fingers.

    BAHAHA. It's $2,800 for the i7. And over 3lbs. You can buy the latest 15 inch gaming desktop for that price.

    Have the Surface Book and have yet to get anywhere close to 12 hours. At best, 5 hours. The keyboard is not that great and Windows 10 is wonky. The biggest issue is the support. Microsoft support in one word just plain sucks. This is where they need to take a hint from Apple to compete. The support from MS is historically typical. Give me a chance and I would love the challenge of changing this bad service. Microsoft makes a very attractive device, but due to the high replacement rate, this device is a Pinto with a pretty shell. It is just half baked and while I want it to be my go-to device, it is too unreliable.

    Oh, so a nontouch screen, horribly overpriced (actually both of them are), shiny-seceptible-to-dents Macbook is better than the Surface Book?

    And you give the trackpad an 8 out of 10. Is Apple paying you or something? Pathetic.
