Very expensive, but premium laptop

Everything about this laptop is excellent from the keyboard, to screen it seems no expense was spared. With that in mind it's a very premium product, with a very high price. If you want a top of the line product though this is perfect fit. I was initially hesitant given it's nearly triple the price of very usable laptops, but after buying one of those and returning it because it sounded like a washing machine running and slow I see why it's so expensive. The best feature of all is the fanless processor. The laptop is completely silent.

Best PC I've Owned Hands Down

Being a tech professional, I've mostly relied on company provided laptops/machines for high powered computing... my personal laptops for the last 20 years have been middle of the road units. I decided to pull the trigger on this 2 in 1 laptop/tablet and although the price point made me balk (a few times) I couldn't be happier with this machine. Build quality is outstanding. Keyboard is smooth with a sexy backlight. Graphics are lush. I am continually suprised in laptop mode that I can reach up to the screen and use touch to navigate/input when required. Fast. And I mean really fast. SSD with 16Gb RAM and and a 2Gb video card is outstanding. Photoshop launches in about 5 seconds flat and RAW photos take a heartbeat to open. And that's running on BATT. If you are an Adobe Creative Suite user be advised you will have to write a custom Adobe .CONFIG file for both Photoshop and Illustrator to compensate for the crazy screen resolution but a quick Google should get you up and running. I haven't solved the Dreamweaver configuration yet, but the program is still usable... just really small text. I've yet to try the pen but looking forward to it as most reviews are positive. I also splurged on the Surface Dock and recommend it should you want to set up a home office. The main reason I pulled the trigger on the 2 in 1 as I also needed a tablet on my piano music stand for chord charts/notation. With the magnified base of the screen to connect to the Surface laptop keyboard, this also doubles as a safety feature to avoid "slippage" on my metal music stand. I am now in the process of digitizing my music library to OneNote. Again, I couldn't be happier. Pros: best windows PC on the market that is actually a 2 in 1, FAST FAST FAST, graphics are outstanding. Cons: Price... you get what you pay for. Some may think the detached screen is a bit large for a tablet (suits me perfectly though).
