I fell in love with the Surface Book and when I thought about getting a Surface Pro… I didn’t like its type cover, felt it was quite cheap, but It was not the Alcatara’s one.
So I like its display a lot and its keyboard is a dream to type on, but I’m super weak and its weight was bothering me even thought I had heavier laptops before. Those one, I’ve never thought about transporting them, they were always at home. It only became heavy because I put other things in my bag so it was not a big problem.
I like and dislike the 13.3" screen. It was really great to read my pdfs for school on the go, but it is big and I was being super cautious in the metro or the bus. It really does standout and I’m a scaredy cat. Sometimes, I just thought about how ut would be great if it was smaller.
I was using it’s tablet / canvas form a lot. Either to read things, to draw or to watch my movies and it was bothering me because I had to pickup the keyboard as well to have my fulltime battery. It’s tablet battery was roughly 2 hours. I dislike the visual keyboard so I was really annoyed to not be able to use the physical keyboard while I was on the canvas mode like I would kind of do with the V and its Bluetooth keyboard. But here’s again when I was using its laptop form it was fuckinh great. I still try to scrolldown on my friends laptop because I think they are touch.
Sometimes, when I was removing the tablet from the keyboard, I was getting a blue screen of the dead or the screen would just freeze even if all the updates were installed. It’s a common defect from what I read about it. The SB really boots up fast so after a minute I could just mind my own business again, but what if I was doing something important… just the thought of it cringes me.
My last point is the fact my SB was a refurbished one, so the battery was not at its best and I couldn’t buy the MS protection. I’m a clumsy person and for my peace of mind I would have liked to have it, but I can’t afford a 2300 $ i5 / 124 / 8gb SB. I’m a student, I could pay a semester and half with that money. It also costs a lot to replace the battery or the screen. So if I could buy a brand new i5 V for the same price as a Refurbished SB, I’m sold. Unfortunately I’m not sure anymore if V’s price is going to be lower than the last one.
At the end, I thought about keeping the SB and selling it for almost the same price ( hihi. ) when the Eve V would come out. I performed some test and people are sending me message when I list it for 1400, but I wonder if it’s going to be the same few months later. Maybe the SB2 will comeout and the SB worth is going to drop, maybe… maybe… maybe. I still think about it. I was mad in love the SB and every bad points I found could have been endured, but the V kind of seduced me.
I don’t know. Am I being too picky?
