    Apple is aggressively pricing thier arm products, Microsoft is not. Kinda annoys me! I'm interested to test it, but not at $2k on sale.

    • +1 vote

      You could order one from the Microsoft store, thought the discount isn't as large, and utilise the returns policy. Not that straight forward though.

      edit: for clarification I thought the comment was about the pricing of the Surface Pro X which is ARM based.

    •  

      The Surface Pro 7 i7, 256GB is $1836.
      The M1 MacBook Pro is $1,899.
      The surface has 16GB compared to M1 8GB.
      Pricing is similar?

      The M1 MacBook Air is definitely better value at $1,499.
      Given the pricing of the Air, not sure why you would get the Pro?

      You would get the Surface over the Air, if you require windows apps.

        Surface Pro 7 is a tablet with bluetooth keyboard.
        13" i5/Ryzen5 Surface Laptop 4 vs 13" MacBook Air & 15" i7/Ryzen 7 Surface Laptop 4 vs 16" MacBook Pro would be more appropriate comparison IMHO.

        incipient is talking about the "arm product" which is the Surface Pro X.

      •  

        8gb on M1 performs goes a lot further than 8gb on x86. Apples and oranges, so to speak.

    • +6 votes

      I am not sure why would you even want to buy a Surface Pro X as its near useless. It doesnt run anything, its not powerful and its expensive.

    Microsoft is a piece of trash, used two devices and both got battery buldging issue just after two years and screen got detached from left hand side. Microsoft don't think this is a safety issue and dont want to fix it.

      We have about 150 or so in our fleet, there have been maybe 4 (a mix of Surface Pro 4s, 5s, and 6s) in the last 12-18 months that have died that way. It's not surprising since they spend their lives plugged into a dock.

      We've probably had more Dell Laptops with bulging batteries.

      That a good point. I have seen this issue at work as well. Will give it a pass

      I ordered a tad under 30 surface pro 7's for staff at my workplace and the failure rate (as in completely dead, won't power on) so far is 15% in 9 months.

      I wouldn't be confident spending this much money on a surface pro, even at this discounted rate.

      •  

        What's the bet a lot of them have a completely dead battery and need to be powered up from the travel charger, or are stuck in some power saving mode and can be fixed by holding the power button down for 30 seconds.

        •  

          I’m sure its less than 1%

        •  

          I tried the recommended troubleshooting steps and nothing worked on any of them. In most cases, they were left powered on, connected to a dock overnight. Next morning, completely dead.
          Gotta say MS support is pretty good though, swapped them all out without any issues.

        So you are suggesting anyone with a laptop is stupid and using the laptop inappropriately if we don't edit the battery charge settings in BIOS?

      I am onto my second Surface and both have been absolutely superb. Amazing battery life, tough, powerful for their size. They are perfect mobile work machines IMHO and I could not find anything comparable other than Apple stuff.

    •  

      It's not just the Surface Pro. I've seen many Surface Books with malfunctioning hinge detachment mechanisms, yellowing on the screen from heat damage, screens that won't turn on etc. I've also seen Surface Laptops with cracked screens.

      • +1 vote

        I’ve had a surface book with a malfunctioning hinge that couldn’t be revived swapped over for a surface laptop that one day unexplainably had a crack appear on its screen. This time though I was out of luck at the Microsoft store.

        They’re attractive but not durable at all. Went back to an Intel based MacBook Pro. So far so good.

      I had an SP3, sold it earlier this year and have an SP7, not had those issues though I have heard of them.

      That said, I see no reason for an SP7, its underwhelming. The SP3 was real innovation.

    I'm very very very tempted on this one even though I don't need one.

    I have a surface laptop 1 with 4gb of ram and at times have wished for 8gb but love it to bits, plus the 15" would be awesome

    Any reason I shouldn't get this?

    • +1 vote

      Didn't notice the pricing on that. Solid.

      Even though the new AMD processors are a decent leap in performance. That said, for $1200, it's not bad even if the storage is a bit limited at 128GB. I'd opt for 256GB.

      •  

        Too late ordered!

        Sales rep said (yes yes yes salesman) said the chip should perform the same as quad core in,
        Thats good enough for me!

        SSD is easily upgradable in these unlike the older surface laptops

        •  

          hey you said its easily upgradable but where do we buy that size SSD that we see in the surface laptop 3 and 4?

          •  

            @Digitalco: Not sure i was more referring to the chassis being easy to open unlike previous surface models. Mayba Amazon or newegg sell some compatible ssd's

    Have the surface pro 4. It's a decent laptop but there are a lot of things that a MacBook air just does better. I realised I didn't need the touch screen and as a tablet, it's nowhere near as durable as any type of iPad.

    I even had finger imprints from just lying on my back and holding the surface pro 4.

    The power supply cord also frayed in 18m time and the battery was basically toast after the third year. The best feature of this SP4 has been its screen quality and sound quality, which to this day are still very pleasing.

    Not that it is required, but a cute little thing I can do with the SP4 is tethered shooting with my mirrorless camera and capture one pro.

    I'm still able to use the surface pro 4 now, if it's plugged into a wall but I'll never buy an ms laptop product ever again, especially since I have a desktop system.

    I'll stay with a Dell laptop or other for work/study and will use an M1 iPad instead for media consumption.

    Decent price but I ended up getting an M1 Air and have no complaints.

    Surface Pro 7 is such a dissappointment. Expensive, slow, questionably reliable hardware, and, just atrocious support. If you're not in Sydney, you can't even go into a store and act up like a brat out of pure desperation for service. All calls routed to Philippines where any and all problems are directed to abstract MS knowledgebase articles suggesting to re-install windows.
    Can't call service agents directly. Takes weeks for a back and forth. Just atrocious.

    My work gives all the employees a Surface Pro with the dock. It’s slow, screen is way too small, battery life is bad and the ports are a joke (no USB C until current gen, pretty much was forced to use dock for external display). Neither good at being a laptop or tablet. Would much rather use an XPS or MacBook Air, the bigger screen and battery is much more useful than the small boost in portability from a tiny display.

      These things aren't for everyone, they're designed for executives who want something shiny and compact, and don't have much open at a time. The new 7+ models seem to be much better performance and battery-life wise (thanks to Intel 11th Gen CPUs)

      Non-USB-C models had a mini-displayport output, so there was always that option.

    Am interested in the Surface Book 3 for WFH use. Thinking of a 13" mid spec. Recommended? Any experiences on known faults i.e. hinges? I read that the SSD can be upgraded, the RAM sadly no.

    • +1 vote

      Great machine, have multiple family members with them. In my experience, and looking at the internet the hinge is surprisingly solid.

      The SSD can be upgraded, but not without risk of destroying the display when prying it up. It's not 'user accessible'. I know as a first gen Book had its battery expand and I totally destroyed the display even being super careful and using a heat gun.

      Great machine though, even if you don't use the tablet portion. I much prefer this over the laptop, but that's just me.

    • +1 vote

      The 256GB models come with a pretty slow SSD so I'd avoid those. The 13" model does not have a fan in the display/tablet portion so some overheating/throttling is to be expected.

    • +2 votes

      Get the 15" if you are considering the surface book. The 13" has no CPU fan and can easily overheat and throttle. The 15" has a small CPU fan and has better cooling but is still not suited for heavy CPU loads. Battery life is crap with the 10th gen Intel CPUs. My SB3 15 gets about half the battery life of the SB2 I had before that. The 10th gen CPU are real garbage

      Make sure to get the surface complete extra warranty. Well worth it

    I really mean this when I say it, zero bias, am not a fanboy whatsoever, at work, me and two people use MBP's, none of us have had issues in the 3 years i've been here.

    The other 5 people in the business all have Surface's, 4 of them have changed their laptop at least once.

    I have a windows gaming pc at home, happy with that, but Microsoft just don't get it right with these products it seems.

      There was heavy demand during COVID - my theory is that they let QA to slip to fulfil demand for those sweet enterprise contracts.

    Surface pro is a superior product to macbooks. Imagine buying a product and being locked into evosystem that is only used by a minority

    • +1 vote

      I use both for work and personal use. I alternate between the two for reasons.

      They each have their strengths, but I've been using the M1 as the daily more often as the W10 ARM support in Parallels is amazing. It's also a much more polished product, the screen is amazing, and battery life is easily 5-6x longer on a bad day.

      I don't feel locked into anything at all. Can you explain further?

    • +1 vote

      You can install Windows on Mac if you don't like MacOS but from personal experience, the battery life isn't anywhere near as good when using Windows on Macbook.

    Dang exclusions, last year they had 20% off the Surface Go 2, hasn't had that kind of discount since.

  •  

    You can get an extra 10% off Surface products at good guys with education discount. Making it 32.5% off before gift cards. Says not to be used with any other promotion so would be difficult using in store but it works online. Probably an error so won’t make a post giving more exposure.
