    "This is a nice Surface Book - it has clean lines, it isn't bulky, and it performs well. I really love the functionality for taking and sharing notes, as well as doing programming when it is in laptop mode. I also appreciate that the color is not a dully gray or black."

    "I wouldn't classify the Asus ZenBook as a surface book, though having said that...it is an amazing touch screen laptop! I have a Microsoft Surface as well, and the ZenBook makes me leave the surface behind 9 out of 10 times! This is definitely the way to go if you want the flexible input of a tablet/surface, but the more traditional form factor of a laptop/netbook, etc."

    "This MacBook is also expensive and it's so small! Definitely not something I would be interested. I'm specific about laptops. Good brand but there are cheaper options that can do just as much."

    "This Pixelbook has exactly what I need. I love the ease of folding it back and carrying it with me to take notes and work on the device in flip mode throughout the day. When I need a keyboard all I have to do is flip back over to laptop mode and it meets all of my needs. Sleek and stylish I am in love with this product and don't know why I didn't purchase it sooner. A little on the pricey side but well worth it. The stats allow you to get all of the work done you could possibly need to do. Great for work projects and tapping in to yuor favorite entertainment cources."
