I searched a few pages back and couldn't spot a Surface Book topic, so I'll start a new one. Apologies if this one ends up being a duplicate. A long story short, I recently ordered a Surface Book as at least the Finnish Microsoft Store was (and still is at the time of writing) running a nice discount for the Surface Book with the Performance Base. To me it seems like this is basically a Surface Book 1.5 as the Performance Base has a beefier GPU than the original Surface Book, but it's still not the Surface Book 2. I ended up ordering this one as it should be able to function as my primary home computer. Currently I'm running a Mac mini 2011 and an i7 Windows desktop that I got for cheap from my previous employer's clearance, but as the Mac mini isn't getting Mojave and the Windows desktop is rather loud and old, I need something more portable as my primary home computer nowadays. I was holding out for the rumored new MacBook Air with a retina display, but when I saw this remarkable discount and checked what kind of a GPU the performance base contains, I decided to pull the trigger on the Surface Book as it checks even more boxes than the new MacBook Air most likely would when it comes to serving my personal home use. For after all, the MBA would most likely be around the same price as the discounted Surface Book, but it's quite likely that it's not going to be a performance monster and you can more or less forget about gaming. The Surface Book with its i7 and the GeForce GTX 965M should be able to handle at least some casual gaming while also offering me some serious productivity advantage with its pen support. So currently I'm in the nerve-wrecking phase of waiting for my order to arrive, but I'll post here as soon as I have the computer.
