    "The Microsoft Surface Book 2 has powerful specs to replace your laptop. Has an amazing i7 processor to run graphic intensive apps, plenty of ram and space. It is fast and easy to use. Has different screen options and it is light to carry around. The battery lasts a long time as well."

    "This laptop has everything you could need, good CPU, tons of ram and a SSD. The laptop does cost a lot to compensate and it's small, although that could be what you're looking for in a laptop."

    "The Microsoft Surface Book is a pretty decent laptop. Really expensive though. If you have that much money for a laptop, then I'd suggest looking around for other options. Also, it's a bit heavier (1.64 kg) than the weight range I was looking for (1-1.6 kg). "

    "The Surface series has proved to be an unexpected winner in the crowded tablet/laptop market, and this proves no exception. Although a little pricey, the Surface book does exactly what it needs to do and the wifi connection is solid."

    "For years I’ve been looking for a replacement for my MacBook Air and I think I may have finally found it in the Surface Book by Microsoft. Although there are some things I wish Microsoft would have done differently for the most part I love it and it's easy to use. "

    "I needed a good laptop, but one that served as a laptop plus, if you know what I mean. Being an architect means I put my laptops to hard work. When I finally got a Surface with 16GB of RAM, I knew I finally found the best machine for me. The fact that I can carry around the screen and use it as a tablet for my drawings makes this device the best one I've ever had."

    "The best thing about the Microsoft Surface Book 2 is that it is a 2-in-1 laptop which means aside from being a laptop you can also use it as a tablet. And i have read too that it has the most accurate screen of any Windows laptop. And i agree with that after i bought this since i really checked out physical stores of laptops. "

    "This product is a prime example of how no amount of marketing funds or general resources thrown at a project can make up for a truly uninspired and lacking design or purpose for it. Is this a tablet, is it a laptop. Who knows? The flashy ads say it's both, but it's not good for either. Too heavy to be a nice tablet, and not flexible or sturdy enough to be a solid laptop. My work gave me one of these, but I use it as little as possible. The battery life is horrid; the engineers didn't bother to boost it up when they threw that huge power hungry i7 CPU in. Someone please buy Microsoft out and tell them to go back to just working on Windows."

    "The Microsoft Surface Book is a pretty good, cost efficient laptop with Intel's integrated graphics. It actually packs quite a powerful set up hardware for the price including an i7 processor, 16 GB RAM, and a 512 GB SSD. Also, it's convertible to a tablet! Truly the future and I'm so, so happy I got to pick one of these up when it was on a 30% off sale. I couldn't be happier with it, and it has exceeded all my expectations. I can't even begin to explain how often the conversion to tablet functionality has made my life easier when I'm running around."

    "You can buy this model of the Microsoft Surface with a 256GB hard drive, however the current one listed is the version with the 512GB hard drive. They both have the ability to offer a versatile user experience. They have fast hard drives, great storage, a beautiful screen, and a lengthy battery life. I know I've wanted a Surface since they originally released. Just make sure if you're only looking for a 256GB that you select the right Surface version. No point in paying hundreds more for storage that you don't need. "

    "One of the best Microsoft laptops that includes an internal webcam has to be the Microsoft Surface Book HNL-00001 (13.5"). I was not convinced of this product at first but the quality has really shown through as I have used it more."

    "This is an incredibly powerful laptop but also comes with the price to match. I think that's the question that will most challenge potential buyers: do they really need all this power? Huge processor, tons of RAM, a relatively large solid-state drive, surprisingly long battery life. Big, beautiful screen. And shockingly light. The only thing you don't get is a surface pen. Otherwise it's everything you could want. I'm just not sure most people need it all; you could probably get away with something cheaper."

    "This is a hybrid laptop tablet, so it should suit the needs of anyone looking for a very light weight and portable design in their laptop. The convertible functionality should also be great for someone who wants to use their computer for a variety of different tasks and situations, like reading in bed, or working on things during a commute."

    "Tried and True Laptop, if you want a daily worker of a laptop well the Microsoft Surface Book is the one you want, it's part laptop and part tablet but easily accessible for both. It's great for daily work whether it be coding or if you use it just to play games or surf the web. It's 16GB RAM and 512GB SSD make it easy to store and run anything you could think of. The screen is larger than most laptops so pick up this great hybrid."

    "SBook2, 15in, I-7, 256gb is in all respects a premium device & I haven't had any of the issues noted in other reviews. Even with the 15" gorgeous screen, it's light & FAST. Every design has its +/- and the SB2 is no exception. Plus side: See specs: 8th gen I-7 & 1060 Nvidia graphics; hinge allows screen to be used as tablet with the base also without it. The battery is great under normal use (I don't game). Out-of-box experience first rate. Some minor shortcomings: Charger may be under powered, the SD card slot is short, card sticks out & could be damaged & the keyboard feels cramped, no dedicated video out, also Surface team needs to adopt Thunderbolt, USB-C is so yesterday on an otherwise VERY today device. My qualifications: 30yrs enterprise desktop support working with & evaluating PCs but this one is for me. I was looking at All-In-Ones that cost from $1985-2799 when the SB2 came out. I passed on them for the portability of an SB2 with better hardware than AIOs. Glad I did."

I'd like to emphasize the PRO because the price point isn't really for beginners. Advanced Java programming while ensuring a smooth workflow. Top choice! I am choosing this over the Macbook Pro :)"
