When you are in tablet mode, will there be a digital keyboard, if you wanna browse on the internet?
Lisa Gorman (12 days ago)
You should have probably mentioned that the battery life Microsoft claims would never be that high. It's tested in an ideal environment with video loops and it depends on a lot of factors. It's likely you're only going to get about 14 hours max unless you're a heavy gamer. I don't have one yet but it's a common consensus from everything I've watched and read so far about the device. Loved the video though!

The hinge design is weird I don't like it. The hinge design on Lenovo YOGA 920 is much much better and well engineered. Another thing I don't like it on Surfacebook is the color of the keyboard. The keyboard color should be darker since it is backlight keyboard. It is hard to see the letters when the backlight is on. With these cons in addition to what you said, the price is very high on top of that. Another issue is the keyboard is available only in English and French.

** Please Reply ** Can we use the USB Port present on the charger to connect usb devices to the laptop??
Vedant Ghadi (3 months ago)
So I cannot use it as a usb dock to connect pendrives and other usb media stuff?? I would have loved if microsoft provided that feature.... and yes, please tell me if this deal is good or not, as I am ordering this from all th way from USA to India..... https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0163GS05Q/ref=ox_sc_act_title_1?smid=A2IKQ65UR5BUE7&psc=1 and thanks for quick reply...... I love your videos.... :)

Please answer. Is surfacebook2 comes with stylus ???
Matthew Moniz (4 months ago)

looks like that was a Microsoft asset... i see you bro ;)

Why the hell would Microsoft not label the product SURFACE BOOK 2 on the box? My customer is asking if he got a SurfaceBook instead of a SurfaceBook2 because the box branding doesn't distinguish the difference.

Is there a big difference between the power of the gtx between the 13.5" and 15" models for creative/artist types for this device?
Matthew Moniz (4 months ago)
Definitely! the Gtx 1060 in the 15" model is significantly more powerful than the 1050 inside the 13" model. It really depends what you do! If you just work in photoshop the 13" model is fine. But if you want to game and work with 4K video I suggest getting the 15" model.

Nidesh Khobragade (4 months ago)
Can you show us some gamings on this laptop, something like OVERWATCH game, because I am a gamer and I prefer to use a gaming laptop of a min of 1060 graphics card.

it's the ultimate laptop but why other companies aren't making the same in a cheap price?? is it expensive to make |??
Kyouhyung Kim (4 months ago)
AFAIK the USB port on the Surface charger is for charging only. Did they update their power brick on this iteration?

Still just charges! Verbal mess up

on the tablet mode, can you access your file in hard drive? and when you plug the external hard drive, can you access it too? thank you
Matthew Moniz (4 months ago)
+Lsiahaan yes in tablet mode you can access your hard drive. But if you plug in an external hard drive it needs to be attached to the basement in order to access it.

I'll buy this after 3 years as a replacement to my SP4. I'm sure it's gonna be below 2k at that time.
Saalar Ahmad (5 months ago)
Amazing videography and i loved that u talked about the dial as well. Just wanted to ask u if u could use the dial ontop of the surface book, like the surface studio.
Matthew Moniz (5 months ago)
+Saalar Ahmad Thanks man! I'm 99% sure you can but I'll confirm in my review !
txmoney (5 months ago)
Very interested in the main painpoint for me: screen wobble. What's the point of having this awesome touchscreen device if it's going wobble when using it in laptop mode? I hear the revised hinge design improves the stability. Please cover that in your review.

does it scratch easily? can you use the display and keyboard separately or with another bluetooth keyboard? bluetooth headphones connect to tablet or keyboard portion?
Ibraheem Toure (5 months ago)
So is this better than the surface pro for students?
Matthew Moniz (5 months ago)
+Ibraheem Toure depends what you're using it for. If it's just notes and browsing the web is stick to the surface pro. But if you want to game a little, using apps like phtoshop or premiere than the surface book is a better option
Hobbes (5 months ago)
Thanks for the video Matthew! Honestly, like you, I really like the hinge, not just for the unique look it gives the Surface Book, or because of all the engineering talent that had to go into making it, but because of its utilitarian aspect. Many people glossed over Microsoft's initial unveiling where they specifically described why they designed the fulcrum hinge, which was to extend the length of the base of the laptop when opened to make it so that the laptop wouldn't tip over due to the weight of the tablet portion, since it has a full computer inside of it. If the base, when opened, was the same length as the tablet portion, the weight of the tablet portion would cause the laptop to tip backwards, but by extending the base out when opened, that doesn't happen. Now yes, they could have done the same thing simply by making the base of the laptop a lot heavier, but then it would be needlessly heavy, I think that the fulcrum hinge is a much better solution.

Really a pity that Microsoft doesn’t include the surface pen anymore, for this price they definitely should

Erika Martin Taylor (5 months ago)
Looks nice, but I can't believe that they have the audacity to charge that much and not even include the surface pen!!!
NotAndy (4 months ago)
Most people don't use the pen. This is something they learned in the last 4 iterations. Developing the pen also costs a ton bc the specs of the pen are on par with Wacom's (prof. Industry standard) sitting at 4096 levels of pressure and it's thinner, just as functional. I'd rather not have to be forced to pay an extra $100 for a pen I might not use it. As for the cost of the device, it's justified. They basically re-engineered all the internals and you can imagine how much that costs. Not only is it a laptop, but also a tablet with laptop grade specs. With the base attached, on par with some gaming laptops. You can't get this level of versatility and power anywhere else really, so it's worth the money if you have it and you can use the pen display. Otherwise buy a regular laptop.
Chemtrail Dreams (4 months ago)
Erika Martin Taylor I’m guessing they didn’t turn a profit on the first version and are under fire from management to make a profit on this one

Sunidhi Naik it’s been shown to only drain battery while charging only on a few titles which can be fixed by adjusting the settings (destiny 2 was one of them)

why would you bother with the 13
Hobbes (5 months ago)
Better portability, and it's powerful enough for those that don't need as much raw performance but are still fine paying the price premium for the Surface Book exclusive features
Parker Brooks (5 months ago)
portability and price

What's the battery life on the tablet portion? How how and loud does it get when gaming? If you ever get the 15 inch version, is the tablet just too big to use as a content consumption device or is it fine?
