Imo, and lots of others opinion, £1300 too much for a surface pro.. screen too small, no meaty gfx

The form factor alone is where the money is at and the spec sweet spot is sub 1K

For £1300 you can get a high quality, powerful and more capable laptop with a bigger more accurate screen, *and* a tablet for simultaneously reading your reports etc

If you're minted though.. go for it! If I won the lottery I'd get 2 and donate another £100 tip to Microsoft

Probably

Isn't it the idea to vote hot when the deals are not too expensive

£1300 and only 256GB non-expandable drive for system and all future software packages..

i5 to i7 .. That's £450 extra to open chrome 2 milliseconds faster

same price since the 22nd of november.
Should be at least 512gb for those monies imo
It's the lapability that annoys me most about these devices.

True, although some people don't mind it, the stand does work somewhat sitting on lap as it's well made but not like having the secure weighty slab we all know and love..

But that's kind of a good thing imo, surface is great for low weight aiding super portability, and great for the ability to actually hold higher instead of staring at the lap racking up future physiotherapy bills.

Use as a laptop is excellent, just on a.. er.. surface

hot deal for sure but IMO ~£750 for a I5 with 8GB is the sweet spot for form (factor) vs function for the surfaces (and I have had more than a couple over the years)

If that £750 -/+ is the case (agreed) then how is the minor performance upgrade worth £550.. which is enough money for a new massive professional grade monitor or an entire laptop? For what? You won't want the upgrade for top spec games, you won't want it to pro render 3D world's in Maya as the GPU is hamstrung and has no thunderbolt for ext GPU so why spend £550 going to i7 when i5 works fine?

Doesn't seem like a good deal, I wouldn't recommend it to anyone.

£1300 for high performance then buy a proper hybrid ultrabook with a 1TB SSD, bigger better screen, expandability, thunderbolt, GPU, switchable thermals that you can actually use the i7 with

PS
One of the main reasons I fell in love with SP was zero fan noise. That was a real kicker. i7 has a fan and it's not silent. Just saying

You seem to be knowledgeable regarding laptops, so I'd like to ask your advice.
I plan to purchase a laptop next year, mainly to use with Photoshop/Lightroom, to process photo files. I'll need a largish, high resolution screen, and enough oomph to run the above programs. Any pointers as to what I should look out for, gratefully received.

ps: the silent fan 'sounds' like an excellent idea.



Apologies OP for going off topic.

Yes, that's an annoying word invented by Microsoft
Does not support Thunderbolt 3 even at this expensive price so external graphics not possible and maximumdata rate only 10gbps with usb c

Exactly what I was thinking BEFORE I clicked on the deal link in my alerts. Love the machine but I can hold out for them to go under a grand or to buy another machine with better spec for under a grand. Also, I think I would prefer the 6. Battery life longer. But the spec I want won't be going down to under a grand anytime soon.

Does the touch screen hybrid thing appeal?

Next year, okay I'd get an Ice Lake Spectre with OLED, integrated Intel Iris gfx is actually excellent for regular Photoshop, Lightroom duties etc. OLED screen on the current 13 inch X360 is beautiful by all accounts, I think the 15 is yet to be released but works on your timeframe. Wonderful machine.

I'd look at some of the top end yoga too if you like that hybrid thing. imo touch is necessary for design heads, and making it into a tablet is a genuine advantage.

Yeah surface silence!! No fans. i5 model
I’m tempted to get the pro 6 i5 model...... got a bundle of amazon vouchers to use up
Can an external GPU be used with this for gaming?
The specification on the Amazon website is shocking, even states it's an i5 somehere! much better description here:

business.currys.co.uk/cat…Fri

It seems that most aren't upto date knowledge wise with the new generation Intel graphics, this has the Intel G7 graphics which is better than the Vega 8 graphics in the AMD Ryzen chipset. I would take the Intel G7 over the dedicated nVidea MX150, you get slightly less performance, but not by much, but much better battery life

Thanks so much for your helpful reply. I shall do research on the options you have outlined.
Also, the the touch screen hybrid machines do appeal - handy, as you mention, for PS & LR.
Cheers, Happy New Year!

Should probably warn you that for use digital inking the pen has noticeable more jitter on SP6. SP7 nailed it down to a minimum

Not too bothered about them own, to be honest I just want a decent 12inch sized tablet for my back pack during work travel.
