Microsoft Surface Book and Surface 4 Options for my Next Laptop
Boris Mann

I have a Surface 4 w/ i5–2.4GHz w/ 4GB RAM running Windows 10 Pro. I treat it as a laptop that has good battery and reasonable startup/wake-up time. Screen has good ‘pop’. I like the little kickstand in ‘laptop mode’. The overall design is inoffensive.

The touchpad on the cover/keyboard is not super awesome and the keyboard is decent but likely a weakspot with longer use. I rarely use the pen and touch.

It runs my VMWare Virtual Desktop just fine and Chrome is speedy on the gigantic pages (e.g. The Verge).

Not sure I need it to do much more.
