Last week we reviewed the Surface Pro 4 in-depth. Unfortunately, we were not given a Surface Book review due to limited quantities. We know you folks demand more from us so what else to do but buy one on day one at a Microsoft Store?
Luckily, we were able to walk into the New York City flagship location around 3PM and still pick up the hard-to-find Core i7 version with 512 GB of storage and a nice heaping 16 GB of RAM. Plus, yeah, it has that nifty Nvidia GPU on board too. Cost before tax? $2,699.99. Yowza!
We roll hard.
Although we plan on reviewing this impressive hardware next week, for now we'll do a quick unboxing and hands-on of the latest Surface. Have you pre-orderd? Still deciding which Surface to get? Sound off in comments and let us know what you think!
