How to Think About Money How does one normally think about money?
As you can see, it is every configuration with a dedicated GPU. Without it, might as well just go for the Surface Pro 4, which is lighter, smaller and cheaper. At that price, it is a tough buy for many of us.
Apple puts a lot of effort into giving superb experience and it always starts with the packaging. Microsoft certainly put quite a bit of thought and effort into its packaging as well.
Ease of unpacking, simplicity and elegance came to mind as I unboxed the Surface Book. Here is a glimpse at the packaging, once the front cover is open: Everything is packaged neatly. The main compartment houses the Surface Book, the stylus pen and a small instruction envelope, whereas the right compartment contains the charger.
The Surface Book itself is wrapped in transparent plastic. The Surface Book was brand new, so I was not sure what was going on.
I tried to use a blank password and it would not let me in. I had to use Google for rescue, to see what was going on. Apparently, I was not the first person who encountered such an issue. The solution was to power down the machine, then press and hold the shift key as the machine booted up for it to go into the setup.
It did work and the setup process started. From there everything went smoothly — I was able to pair the pen and set up my account. I am not sure what caused this initial issue, but I am guessing it had to do with the new Windows 10 OS.
It was probably too new and had a few bugs to address. In fact, as you will see below, this was not the only issue I encountered with the Surface Book. There are a few other problems, some of which Microsoft has already addressed via firmware and driver updates and others that still need to be taken care of.
It feels great to the touch, with similar high-quality feel as the MacBooks. Overall, it feels like the Surface Book has a very strong and rigid construction that will be able to withstand quite a bit of normal day to day abuse. The top part that houses the display and all the main components feels very light when detached from the keyboard.
It is hard to believe that such a light machine could house such powerful components — a bit mind boggling when you think about it and compare to most laptops we have seen in the past.
This causes the mechanical levers within the display unit to unlock. From there, you have to lift the screen from the keyboard to detach. Since the magnets holding the two pieces together are very strong, you will need to use one hand to pull off the display, while using your other hand to hold the keyboard.
In this state, the Surface Book will automatically switch to tablet mode within the operating system and since the keyboard, along with all the ports and the dedicated GPU are no longer available, they will all disappear from the Device Manager left: In the above case, once I closed Photoshop, I was able to successfully detach the display from the keyboard.
If you run processor-intensive applications, the battery will deplete pretty quickly. However, for regular web browsing and email, you will get about 3 hours of use before the battery runs out. I would recommend connecting the power cable to the bottom of the display where the keyboard tray connectors are located to keep the battery continuously charging as you work in tablet mode thanks Boris!
Reattaching the display to the keyboard is super easy. Thanks to the strong magnets on both the display and the hinge area, all you have to do is move them close enough for the magnets to pull each other and reattach. Microsoft designers did a phenomenal job here for sure.
So far, I have not had any mechanical issues with the attachment components, which is great. However, I did experience a software issue that Microsoft needs to address:That was a long time ago, and I’m about to meet the generous man who sent me that book in person at our mutual friend Dr.
Jim Dahle’s conference where we’re all going to be speakers. I figured it was high time I deliver on the promise I made many moons ago and write that book review.
Reply. Okay, these are off the chain. I just made the brownies last night (and left out the coffee because I wanted to share with the kiddo and wasn’t sure if I’d be peeling him off the ceiling and the extra chocolate chips because I only had 1 bag) they are the best brownies (Paleo or otherwise) I have ever had.
Ever. Quick and easy to make.
I love anything and everything by Dr. E, including being with her live in person at her intensives! For me, "The Creative Fire" is one of my absolute favorites. "Fields of Fire" a realistic Vietnam war book by James Webb, in the perspective of James Webbs experiences in Vietnam as a foot soldier in the "bush". The story is told from many different vantage points, ranks within the military, different races, economic classes, pacifists/5.
