Wouldn't now blow that dosh on a "6th Gen Intel Core i7".
I'd wait for 8 which is a massive quantum leap in performance;
Just compare an already available 8th gen i-blah with 6th or 7th. Blown away.
Some have warned wait until you see if the frames can handle the chip heat output.

i had two surface books, one failed one month before warranty, was replaced and was given 90 extra days, around 100 days, yes 10 days after additionl warranty expired replacement got broken too. I had to come back to my sony vaio z which has never failed me, no more buck for any microsoft laptop from me

Sorry, the Surface is junk, not ANY good (from experience, see threads passim...).

Surely you paid for such an expensive purchase with a credit card? This would have given you section 75 protection and I think there can be no doubt that you would be able to successfully argue that such a "premium" product should be expected to last longer than 13 months!

Microsoft's QA is poor, build quality is far worse than Dell, wouldn't buy.

Perhaps I got lucky, but I've had no problems whatsoever with my Surface Book 1 bought around the initial launch period, over 18 months ago. Brilliantly versatile machine and playing Civilization 6 on my couch using touch controls, is my favourite thing. Definitely worth a look if you can justify the outlay
