Don't believe the hype!

The marketing for these devices is over the top, I was skeptical but tried it anyway after reading all the wonderful things it supposedly can do so I bought it three days ago, got it all updated/tweaked and ready to start working with it but then reality set in... I installed Photoshop (CC 2017) and quickly discovered that it wouldn't be suitable for any real-world photo editing (too many delays for simple tool changes etc) The pen might as well have just been a pointer stick, it isn't smooth and drops its connection WAY too often). It absolutely chokes when I try to use DXO Optics Pro Elite with my D800 RAW files. Trying to use Autopano Giga 4 was laughable (useless). Corel Painter 2016 was a mess as well... If you are looking for an expensive toy to play with the Microsoft Fresh Paint app this will work great. Just don't expect it to be a serious editing device. That being said, it is built very well and is very quiet (even with the fans running). It handles surfing the 'net, checking emails etc easily.

When this works, this is a great computer. If only it worked. Instead, my surface book crashes every time that it goes to sleep. It is necessary to do a hard reset (holding the power button down for 30+ seconds, then starting up the computer) in order to use it again. This results in the loss of any active work. This problem has persisted despite clearing caches and multiple attempts to adjust it, as well as reinstalling windows clean. Microsoft tech support was useless in attempting to fix the problem. In addition, the screen was inadequately attached when I received the computer and is bowing out of the casing. While it is clear that the problem is faulty adhesive and construction, when I contacted Microsoft about this they told me that this is not covered under their warranty because it would be considered accidental damage. Too late to return in store, so I'm stuck with this.

Awesome Tablet, Laptop & Desktop Replacement

My experience with the Surface Book (Intel Core i5-6300U/256GB SSD/8GB RAM) so far has been excellent. It works marvelous with the Microsoft Wireless Display Adapter. I am able to seamlessly stream content to my HD TV. While wirelessly streaming YouTube in HD I am able to press the detach button and separate the screen portion without a blip in the transmission. I can then use the Surface Pen to control the tablet. The screen reattaches either forward or reverse to the keyboard portion, again without a blip. I also purchased the Surface Dock and the Philips 40 inch 4K monitor to enable a full desktop experience. The image in 4K is stunning. Simply plug the monitor and any peripherals into the dock and then take the single magnetic Surface Connect Cable and plug it into your Surface Book and Voila a wonderful desktop experience is the result. Excellent Job Microsoft - I love your Surface Book products!!
