[The Verge] Microsoft Surface Book - Page 5

post #41 of 260

Razer blade uses 970M , there's a HUGE difference in power/heat requirements between a 970M and desktop 980. Also the razer blade is 0.7 inches thick, that's way thicker than what the surface book appears to be, In addition to that the razer blade starts at $2399, whereas the Surface book Nvadia GPU version starts at $1899. You see the difference. I'm sorry to have to be that guy and burst your bubble kid but it's not gonna happen. Your dream device is not here yet. Anyways you will know in a few days when the full specifications sheet is released. But like i said before your LUCKY if you get a 960M. That's the best case scenario, trust me i know what i;m taking about. Peace.

Yeah, I'm not sure how I feel about the price... it's kinda high, even for what you get. Then again, it's a superslim notebook with the power of a desktop that turns into a tablet. Maybe that's worth $2k+? Gonna have to think about it.

Either way, I have a feeling these are gonna sell faster than they can make them.

Now if only someone can definitively find out what GPU is under the hood. But the price the make you pause a bit over it.

Interesting. I still like my Surface Pro 3 though.

50%=950M, 40%=960M, 5%=970M, 4%=980M, 1%=(DESKTOP) 980

These are my bets

Why 50% on the 950? because Apple got away with the 750 on their mbp so thats what Microsoft will go for (You know stuff when you know the game)

The Surface Book has a 13.5-inch diagonal PixelSense, 3,000x2,000 pixel display, with 6 million pixels at 267 pixels per inch. The screen supports touch and you can write on it with the included Surface Pen.

(Edit: I just saw that the surface 3 was 3:2 as well. Regardless, I like the choice).
Did someone just do something with screen aspect ratio that makes sense?!??!

Can I finally view my photos in the same native aspect ratio as nearly every professional photograph taken in the last 50 years?

Yes, yes I can.

And both the Surface 4 and Book include the Stylus. Sweet.

Agreed. The more I look at it (which has been a LOT this afternoon, believe me lol) the more I realize you're definitely paying a premium for a product that really has no equal. But then again, it is a product that currently has no equal, perhaps that premium is justified.

The difference between a comparably spec'ed Pro 4 vs Book seems to be in the neighborhood of $500. At that level, I definitely want to know precisely what "geforce graphics" i'd be getting. Better be at least a 960m, if not a 970m. But I'd bet on a 950 based on the premium.

Surface Pro seems a better choice if it comes with SSD. This is a bigger and more powerful version, but Surface Pro is a tablet-laptop rather than a laptop-only. That for business, non-gaming applications. I do not see how this laptop can include a powerful-enough GPU for gaming.

And you can get a dock with an Ethernet port.

At $200 it's frigging expensive, but for the ability to turn your notebook into a reliably connected, multi-monitor, mouse-and-keyboard PC with a single plug, it might be worth it.

I use a similar "docking station" for my laptop in my office. The problem here is that unlike Apple, which can price its hardware high because its enthusiasts are mostly individuals with brand loyalty, Microsoft's primary demo here is the corporate environment... and while the Surface Pro/Book + this docking station would be hugely appealing in any corporate office, not many are going to shell out that kind of money for it when similar (though less powerful/versatile) hardware is available from Dell, Lenovo, etc at literally half the price.

But I'm just spitballing here. Personally, I totally want one for myself just to play with. Whether I'll shell out $2500 to do so is another matter entirely.... TBD.
