    Great price for great product!!

  • +6 votes

    That model …

    Processor
    6th Gen Intel Core i5 or i7

    probably an old - discontinued model. good price none the less but probably priced about right too.

  •  

    Hybrid graphics, is that dedicated gpu or just igpu?

  • +4 votes

    Seems like a great price combo, I have notebook with similar specs and love it still. This has a massively high resolution screen, fantastic touchscreen and the ability to seperate into a tablet.

    To get the latest Surface Book 2 with 512GB storage and 16GB of RAM with GTX 1060 6GB you are looking at $4,249.00 incl. GST from Microsofts website.

    These are not toys or portable gaming systems, they are professional work tools and are priced accordingly.

    •  

      Professional work tool with a dual core low voltage CPU? Excellent price none the less. Too bad I would not able to do a salary sacrifice on this one as I had one for the year already :(

      •  

        Of course it'll work well on that system, Photoshop was initially released in 1990 with 486 systems, you don't need the most powerful CPUs to do pretty impressive tasks. These CPUs are pretty darn fast CPUs for ultrabooks.

        •  

          i have a same specked thinkpad, video editing is quite slow ad lightroom is quite choppy sometimes too. you dont need a powerfull cpu but you really needs to be quadcore.

        •  

          @ubcool: Well that's good for anyone to know, have you made sure that the application utilises your GPU? I was 3D modelling on my ultrabook and it was running slow even with 4 cores, that was until I forced the application to utilise the NVIDIA GPU, apparently you can do the same for Adobe Lightroom:

          You can change the default GPU for a program through the NVIDIA Control Panel, simply Right-Click on the Lightroom Icon and select Run with Graphics processor -> Choose Default Graphics processor.

          Then you will be given an option to select the preferred graphics processor for Lightroom

    Should note this isn't the performance base. It has a GTX940M instead of 965M

    •  

      So which is the better deal? 512 or 256 model?

      •  

        I'd personally got with the performance base. 940M is pretty weak for anything. 965M is weaker than the current 1050 laptop gpu by about 10%. Slight improvement to battery size too i think.

        •  

          Well to be fair that's only "weak" for GPU tasks - 3D etc. You're not going to be running CUDA tasks on a laptop. For me a 940M or a 965M are both way too slow to use for gaming and I don't do CAD work so they're no real difference.

  •  

    Can anyone who owns this confirm it has a dGPU? If so, is it a GTX940M or GTX965M?

  • +2 votes

    I have one at home. Will update here when I get back in the afternoon.

  •  

    Can someone find our RE dGPU 256gb vs 512gb? Microsoft themselves don't know. I want to buy one but have no idea what is going on RE dGPU.

    •  

      Both should have them just different specs. Initially the surface book was said to have a dedicated NVIDIA gpu which was never actually exposed to be an exact model, because it was Microsoft’s own spec from NVIDIA. But the performance was similar to a 940m.

      The performance base has a better specced GPU

      •  

        Thanks.

        I first purchased the 256GB model without realising it had half the ram less (8gb vs 16GB) than the 512gb model.

        It would have been nice to have the extra GPU power, but since I will predominantly be doing multi-tasking work, I think I will cancel the 256GB and buy the 512GB model.

          The sneakiest thing you can do is buy both, then match the lower spec tablet with the lower spec base, then keep the performance setup and return sell the other.

        •  

          @ATangk:

          That is just some next level s*** right there.

          I don't know if I have it in me, ethically. Do you think they'd notice the base wasn't the correct one? I reckon they would check all that prior to processing the return.

        •  

          @Stugots: they’re going to check that the item is there, not the model numbers specifically. Do you think they’re going to boot it up to see?

          @ATangk:
          You know who suffers?

          Its the next person that receives that sh1tty thing you returned.

  •  

    I'd be happy with just integrated graphics, but want an 8th Gen 4-core. Mainly want a portable coding ultrabook.

    •  

      I want an actual 8th gen, but none have been released yet. i7-8559U and others are 25W TDP, and are much better than the fake coffee lakes, but only the mid refresh 7th gen labelled as 8th gens are out.

  •  

    Thanks was about to buy a 256GB i5 version for $1599

    Can confirm that CR7-00004 is a 6th gen CPU. With Nvidia Graphics.

    •  

      Looks like it is the 1GB dGPU which is equal to about a 940m vs the 2gb 965m in the 256gb model.

    How’s the battery life of this?

    • +1 vote

      Around 10-12 Hours on Low-performance mode.

      • +1 vote

        What does that mean? Brightness down to 25% and you just browsing the web?

        • +1 vote

          Lower CPU, Brightness and Memory speed performance.
          If you click on the battery icon there is a performance slider. There used to be four options but after the update, there is only now three.

        Mostly use it for light gaming (football manager), browsing the net, watching tv series and light use of excels. How is this compare to MacBook Air 13inch 2013 version?

        • +1 vote

          This would absolutely BLITZ that MacBook Air. Even the pros in 2013.

        • +1 vote

          You might get 10 hours out of it. My sister has one it can last throughout the whole day of school work. Watching tv shows depends if you are watching it in 4K or 1080P. I don't have Macbook air but I use to have a 2011 Macbook and that could last about 20 hours. Mac OS X is less demanding OS wise.

  •  

    Price seems good. Surprised they don't mention what gen it is. I'm guess 6th.

    My gripe with it is that it leaves an unsightly gap when the lid is closed.

    I remember reading that the screen is wobbly when you press it which would be annoying.
