  • Dang no ability to pop an sd card in like the surfacebook can..
  • Interesting they have gone with AMD for the bigger model. Is this a change in processor shift. I wonder if we will start to see more Microsoft AMD chips. For me I'm happy with that love the performance of my Ryzan in my desktop for gaming.
  • This wouldn't be compatible with any of the existing docking stations at the corporation I work for. Our It has standardized on TB3 docking stations. Not very smart for Microsoft to not understand that TB3 is the De Facto docking standard.
  • To me not having a 17" variant is a no way.
  • Considering no one wants a 17", their not losing any sleep about one less sale. :P
