Didn't you say this was a b tech version of surface pro?
Old, underpowered processor and a relatively large and heavy spec. Not much going for this as far as I can see?

Only the design. If you buy on appearance of course.

Why underpowered? I thought i7 is meant to be good?

Depends what i7. In this case it's an energy efficient dual core that's two generations old. Good for battery life, but I'd rather have something more powerful for this price.

I'd appreciate it if you could tell me how you tell the difference between different i7 processors. I'm looking to buy a laptop and need a good processor/ram for multi tasking. I've been told to got for the Intel one and try and avoid amd but had no idea there was different versions of i7

It's overly complicated, but Laptop mag have a decent article, check out the cheat sheet at the top for a short run down.

My very short summary:
- i7 > i5 > i3
- But, newer generations tend to trump better 'i' numbering from previously generations. The generation is the first number after the dash. So, for example, an i5-8 is often better than a i7-7.
- The last letter denotes the type: H > U > Y.

Personally, I'd look for any Intel starting i7-10, i5-10, i7-8, i5-8 (in that order) and ending in a U or (ideally) a G. The AMD ryzen range are roughly equivalent (ignore the Intel vs AMD crowd), look for a 3500 or 3700 (roughly i5 and i7 equivalent respectively).

Unless you're doing particularly processor-intensive work I wouldn't worry about i5 vs i7. Having previously had both I usually go for i5s - the i7s are normally much more expensive but make no difference for day to day tasks.

Hope that helps! If you find any specifics you're looking at then I'm happy to chime in

Thank you! Very helpful! In that case I'll shop around for the i5-10 as well... Interesting stuff
