Lisa Gade reviews Microsoft’s first laptop, the top Book. Like Surface Pro 4, it is also a tablet, but it’s designed to become a laptop first, having a traditional laptop feel and style. The 13.5” Surface Book includes a striking 3000 x 2000 PixelSense display that supports both touch and pen through the incorporated N-Trig pen with eraser. The “clipboard” as Microsoft calls it, or tablet section separates in the fulcrum hinge for solo use. There is a battery within the tablet and the other within the keyboard base, which base also houses the not compulsory custom NVIDIA dedicated GPU.

It features a backlit keyboard, dual band Wireless 802.11ac, Bluetooth, a rear 8MP camera along with a front 5MP that actually works with Home windows Hello facial recognition. It’s provided with dual core, sixth generation Skylake 15 watt Ultrabook CPUs and eight or 16 gigs of RAM. It uses fast PCIe SSD drives (128, 256, 512 gig and 1TB capacities available). It’s an elegant machine as well as an costly one which costs $1,500 to $3,000 based on configuration. We consider the $2,100 model with Core i7-6600U 2.6 GHz CPU, 8 gigs of RAM, a 256 gig SSD and NVIDIA graphics.
