I got the surface pro 256 GB i5. I paid £999 for it at Currys and I say its worth every penny. not everyone is a full hard core gamer.. for my this device is a game changer. Highly recommended. (I play games on it they work but I am not a gamer . its mainly used as a pc to browse, youtube , music , movies ,, etc ) I think its a great device .
Makes no sense but ok
Totally agree, it has enough improvements to justify that little extra.
So u ld buy a porche 911 with a steam engine?
This is a unique device with superb build quality. You can't simply compare its specs with other machines and claim its value is not as good. Look at all the great critic reviews and user reviews. Just because you don't see its value doesn't mean others don't. (y)
Microsoft announces Surface Laptop 2 with black finish and 8th-gen processors http://flip.it/NIK6HT
This next gen SSD is only 90 quid, they charge a fortune for a privilege to have an X years old tech. https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/wd-blue-500gb-3d-nand-ssd-m2-2280-8049-ebuyer-3066773
The Laptop screen resolution is lower though at 201 ppi compared to 267 ppi on the Surface Pro
The laptop is a better... laptop. The screen is bigger, the keyboard has a better layout, the touchpad is much larger, the battery lasts a bit longer. I bought the Pro, but I bought it primarily for taking notes in lectures, using the pen & OneNote. Having the type cover is handy, but I've rarely used it. I don't think the have the same target customer TBH. But the Pro is the better all-rounder.
Oh nevermind...apparently the code expired at the start of the 20th not the end :(
I'd be interested to know whether you can get the £40 off and the £200 cashback as if so this is a great deal, but I suspect the cashback wont be honoured if you use the code... Has anyone done this successfully?
That's not the same one. That's a Surface Pro, not a Surface Book 2.
I have one 256 GB . i paid £999 and got it from Currys. its a Awesome machine for what it is ... Its a full windows machine packed in tablet. yes you can get better specin in a bigger laptop yes you can get a desktop for that with better specs But if you are looking for portability this is the gold standard. And with regards to battery if the battery starts losing charge in 3 years time then i will get the new batteries installed in it. Look at bright side !!!! https://www.currys.co.uk/gbuk/computing/laptops/laptops/microsoft-12-3-intel-core-i5-surface-pro-typecover-256-gb-silver-10183880-pdt.html
I tested one and got almost 5 hours of general usage with Adobe CC products but that was a new machine once all updates were on. It doesn't surprise me that actual usage would be less (part of the reason why I didn't like the split approach).
To be fair, comparable spec'd laptops with a dedicated graphics card (even the 1050) would be hard to find at £1,409 with an 8th gen quad core i7. That's not considering the detachable screen element and excellent craftsmanship. I'm really happy with mine.
Cold, the IPhone XS has more memory for a similar price (excited) (excited) (excited) . . . . Actually didn’t vote.
It’s a good saving so heat from me even if it is still crazy expensive. But the kicker is that it still only has 256GB. Surely it has to have 512GB at a min at that price?
(shock) DAMN that's alot of paper
They are official suppliers to the queen.
Yes they are, being using them for years
Ah fair enough. Saw they only give 5% discount on the Surface Go.
What are battery life on these like?
Thanks. Are these guys reputable do you know?
You don't have to leave it in the case but you have the option to do so if you want to drop onto the macbook for a few minutes while you have a quick coffee or whatever. There's nothing stopping you taking it out of the case altogether. Personally I have one of these and a soft case. The sodt case is fine if it's going into a larger bag, but the hard cases provide extra protection if that's all you're carrying. They hold decent residual value on ebay also. Owners of older macbooks note that tge current versions are designed for the current wafer thin macbook pros (the expensive non-upgradable ones with the dodgy keyboards). Owners of older macbooks will need to buyer earlier versions (via ebay etc) as the cases are quite a tight fit for whatever is the current model at the time of manufacture. Great cases if you can get a bargain.
That completely blocks the rear-facing vents on the MacBook Pro! I’d rather take any laptop I’m using out of its case anyway unless it’s one of those snap-on plastic ones.
Thank you, ordered one for dell XPS 15.
A hard sleeve offers more protection and with the gauntlet you can use your laptop while it’s in the case like so The soft sleeves here also have an extra pouch for accessories etc. compared to the amazon ones. Amazon sleeves get the job done too
I voted hot because it seems a good deal for the branded sleeve. I have this £4.50 when it was in the warehouse deal and £6.99 now. If the Thule had £15.50 worth of extra features I might be tempted but I can't see any.
Wow this has gone colder than your hearts :o I honestly thought people would make use of this, I bought 2.
Book 2 still too expensive... Does anyone knows of a good deal for a surface book 1st gen with performance base?
That Vaio Pro is just a Windows laptop, an ancient Haswell generation one at that. Nothing particularly exceptional about - in fact, it's pretty flawed with the fan issues, overheating, wobbly build quality etc.
So everything is wrong except you, when you have no experience with anything of any quality. It seems you can't accept what is put in front of you, a typical black is white childish response to everything. I'm not going to bother answering you as i have come to the conclusion you are a 12 year old child with nothing better to do. If you have any experience with my laptop then you can comment, but as you haven't then you should just keep quiet. Stick to what you can afford or what ever your mam buys you in the £200 price range.
Is that with the additional 1kg sheet battery attached underneath the laptop? Everyone knows that the Windows battery predictor isn't accurate from a full charge, especially for a worn battery that's 5 year old. It will just readjust its estimate as the battery loses power. I've seen old Dells that Windows estimates to have 8 hours of charge. Then after 15mins, Windows adjusts it's estimate to 6 hours, then Windows estimates 5.5 hours etc. After 4 hours of actual use, the battery has completely drained.
Only one dreamer here, showed you the link for the $2k advert, showed you the great expert review, I never said I get 25 hours, I said 15/16 n one go or 20-22 over 3 days with around 4 hours standby. Here is my “just a windows laptop” this morning See if you buy £200 laptops you’ll never get to see this. As I said, around 16 hours in one go. still not answered the original questions.
I've got the 2017 model in 15", and am HIGHLY tempted to sell up and go for this... Bear in mind the new spectre 15 is thicker than mine. I'm tempted by this due to the smaller size...
Bizarrely all Surface book 2 have gone OOS at the same time?
This or HP Spectre (16 GB memory; 1 TB SSD storage) for £1699 http://store.hp.com/UKStore/Merch/Product.aspx?id=2QF92EA&opt=ABU&sel=NTB
Damn. Have to become a member for £15. :o (annoyed)
Yes it's used on a desk all the time. Being a business laptop that's where it would spend all it's time so bit of a design floor if an issue with that! It's on feet so has air flow underneath it but after one of these catching fire I won't be leaving it on at home unattended again.
Today I went to check the laptops in Curry's. I had reviewed the specs and was convinced that the surface book 2, and basically all surface products are overpriced. Only morons would buy an i5, 128gb, 8gb surface, when for the same price you can get a dell with i7, 256gb, right?. And then I spent a good hour looking at screens, typing a few words, opening the same page on different makes and models. And not for a second did I want to buy anything else than the Surface Book 2. It is so much better than the competition. The screen is gorgeous, the keyboard is excellent, the design is sleek and the bezel around the screen is tiny. The main selling factor for me was the 3:2 ratio screen with almost 7 milion pixels. It is simply beautiful to look at. For me the price is justified by the screen alone, but again, others might still want to get the latest i7 processor with a simple HD screen from Dell or Lenovo for the same price.
This is still overpriced even with the discount. For the 13.5" / i5 / 8GB / 256GB model, it's still over £1,200 which is crazy money. I'd rather buy an Dell XPS13, HP Spectre x360, Acer Swift 5 or any number of other laptops saving a few £hundred.
Not much good after Brexit....
Best keyboard on any laptop. Only downside is the weight of this machine - it's surprisingly heavy for a 13" lappy.
I have a Surface Book I with the dedicated GPU, but I don't think I've ever really used it. I run 2 monitors though the dock, and I only use it for work, no gaming.
eGPU I would recomend Gigabyte AORUS GTX 1070 Gaming Box Portable Graphics Card. It cost under 600 including a GTX 1070 (now £ 569.98 at ebuyer). For laptops Lenovo offer decen quality-price. Lenovo has offers now for the Lenovo Yoga 720 that has thunderbolt 3, there is a model with a i7 for £850 for example. Still lower price than Surface and you get much better spects (including a full size GTX1070 vs a mobile capped 1050).
Looks like they are out of stock on all 15inch variants
Which eGPU dock and specific machine would you recommend?
How much extra weight does it add? Tempted but would defeat whole point of getting surface if it adds weight ending up similar to a laptop
Thanks for the feedback, I think I'll give it a miss and use my extended cover for any damage.
I paid £50 for it. I must say that it good and not excellent as fitment is poor. Also, when you detach and use as a tablet and wishes to put it back to the base, you have to push the casing back to get it right. Overall, good product and excellent price.
Got one to protect it from my kids - thanks for posting
NB UAG Surface Pro 4 case is also discounted
LOL - nicely played.
I wasn't referring to you. Though I can be a bit of an ass.
Troll? Moi? Call me Shrek baby. You can be donkey!
I did lol, just noted I also got £14 topcashback - boom! result.
Did anyone actually get it at this price? I cant believe it was genuine and not a missprice.
And now my charger is fried lol. SVP can deal with that one ! Good job I already have a spare !!
Replacement arrived with me today. New condition. Just doing all the updates now. Oh and 3 months warranty starting on the day they dispatched it from the service centre.
So far might e has no issues. No complaints at all. Bit I have dealt with MS returns before and they are brilliant at replacing items as long g as you have warranty. Be sure to register your device to your account too so they can check details if required. Hopefully we all dont need to go down this route.
Mine came with a pen too.
About half a day until it started doing it again. It looked like driver issues but there was nothing recorded on the event logs. It was intermittent but when it was happening it would happen quite often. Can’t fault MS. Tons of communication including an email last night confirming the serial number of the replacement unit and to reply to them if anything else went wrong.
They are pricey but the Surface Book and Surface Laptop look so good! is a DELL XPS 13 or HP Envy better for around £1,000? Do not need the tablet function of this but the pen seems like a nice idea.
I wonder if I should swap my sp4 and laptop for a surface book. can any tech savy guy tell me the difference between the one listed on this deal and this i7 on Argos ebay one says 6660 vs 6600 CPU ARGOS EBAY
Isn't there a new Surface Book out now? So this is the old model....This deal is too expensive anyway and far too expensive for the old model
I just want the base, so I can upgrade from my current Surface Book's 940m GPU. And I'd pay £200 for it
Ditto. Offered me refurbished sp4 because my brand new one has a white spot on the display. Take it or leave it is their attitude rather than replace it with a new device.
Me too. Lol
Caught a flame deer here
This is laptop for creatives like the mac book pro. Its not a gaming laptop. Still Microsoft should just offer a good deal on it instead of a bundle discount.
I would say that if you are prepared to pay this amount for the above that you don't actually need it; in that you are already in your own mixed reality..... (cheeky) I do see a big future for mixed reality headsets though...
The amazon states its a 7th Generation m3.. it's not an i7. I wish it is at that price.
Read the Amazon one...it's an i7
Anyone able to get this applied to reserve and collect rather than C&C? Thanks
The amazon one does have a typecover Box Contains1 x Surface Pro Tablet Surface Pro Type Cover (Black) UK Power Adaptor
Because the amazon one is m3 not i7 and does not have a typecover.great deal
