Surface raamat on esimene uue rida sülearvuteid Microsoft twist, Ekraani tuleb maha.

Microsoft Surface Pro line alustas kohmakad: suur, raske ja pigem tööstusliku disaini. Viimane Surface Pro 4 on õhem ja võimekamaks, kuid üsna sama: Windows 10 tableti eemaldatava klaviatuuri.

Aga Surface Book on erineva looma kokku: sülearvuti esimese, tableti teine. See kõlab nagu veider vahet, kuid see teeb päris suur vahe, kui klaviatuur on teie esmane tõukejõud arvutis.

Rääkides klaviatuuri, see ei ole lihtsalt loll lisaseadme. See mahutab suurema aku, SD kaardi pesa, kaks USB 3.0 sadamates, mini DisplayPort ja magnetvälja laadimise pesa. Aga see võib olla ka eraldiseisev graafikakaart sees, Sõltuvalt mudelist, andes Surface Book palju grunt, kui vaja.

Ülejäänud töö arvuti on kantud ekraan, mis muudab selle veelgi tähelepanuväärne, kuidas õhuke see on.

Ekraan ja klaviatuur on ühendatud väljamõeldud Fulcrum hinge, et rullides läbi mitte ainult pöörlev. See pikendab baasi klaviatuuri parem tasakaal ekraani, ilma et lisada kaalu.

Tundub imelik, peaaegu jahe, ja praktikas toimib hästi. See ei kaldu päris nii palju tagasi, kui mõned teised sülearvutid, kuid piisavalt kaugele mugavaks vaatamiseks laua taga.

Klaviatuur ja ekraan on valmistatud halli magneesiumsulamist, mis näeb välja kena, kuid märgid üsna kergesti. Minu lühikest aega koos Surface Book olen märganud kriimustuste alaosa klaviatuuri ja märgi huule vaatamata hoolitsev seda hoolikalt.

kui kinni, hinge ei klapp korter, Selle asemel on vahe umbes sõrme laius luua kiilu kuju, mis kitseneb 22.8mm punkti, 13mm paks.

Nagu te võite arvata, olles Microsoft valmistatud masin, Surface Book jookseb Windows 10, mis on vaieldamatult parim Windows versioon tänaseni.

Tarkvara ei ole tegelikult mingit erilist tweaks või kohandusi pinna Book, mis ei ole ühegi muu Windows 10 kabriolett.

Operatsioonisüsteem on nii rafineeritud ja segadus võrdsetes osades. Parim viis kirjeldada seda on kaasaegne, remonditud kasutajaliides kihiline otse mööda sama vana Windows.

Ringi liikuma, programmide käivitamine ja igapäevases tegevuses tegutseb selles pealmine kiht ja on tõeliselt üsna lihtne kasutada ja kasulik. Aga kui teil on vaja vahetada midagi tõsist, eemaldada töölaua programmi näiteks, saad käivitatud tagasi samasse Control Panel mäletan Windows 2000 – see on kuigivõrd.

See on võimas, muidugi, ja saad mida on vaja teha, kuid vahe tegemist on põhimõtteliselt Windows 10 kiht ja underworkings on üsna räige. Võhikud Ma kahtlustan, see võib olla üsna murettekitav, Eriti kui sa sõrmega ajal ja äkki on puudutada pisikesi kastid.

Lisateavet Windows 10 lugenud:

There are couple of things to note for the Surface Book. The first is Windows Hello, which recognises your face and logs you in without passwords, is fantastic and works as quickly as the computer can boot.

Activating tablet mode actually helps when trying to tap things or use the Surface Book as a tablet.

The Surface Book has a beautiful, high resolution and pixel-dense screen that has great viewing angles and looks brilliant, until you reach an app that can’t scale properly. In that case you end up looking at blurry icons and texta really bad experience, which was all too common in my use of desktop Windows programs such as Evernote, various text editors and other programs.

Apps from the Windows store don’t suffer from the same problem, but they’re often not as powerful. Evernote Touch is a good example, but it’s better than attempting to peer at a blurry mess.

As a laptop

First and foremost, the Surface Book is the best Windows laptop I have ever used. Period. See on kiire, has an excellent backlit keyboard, really great trackpad, enough ports and it’s relatively light at just over 1.5kg.

Some Windows laptops are thinner, some are lighter, but none have quite as good a combination of screen, klaviatuur, power and industrial design.

I managed to get a good working day out of it on battery power and still had enough for a bit of light reading on the train home with the tablet.

It’s worth noting, although not unique to the Surface Book, that being able to touch the screen for input is excellent, even when doing boring things like typing, as moving the cursor around is so much faster than using a trackpad.

As a tablet

The tablet is held onto the keyboard by a very fancy “memory wire” locking mechanism, which changes shape when a current is applied across it. The mechanism is electronic: pressing a button on the keyboard or an icon on the screen disengages the tablet.

You have to pull it directly up from both sides while holding the keyboard down. It sounds hard, but isn’t. Attaching it is just a case of plonking the screen over the connectors. The two then grip each other automatically.

The screen can be placed either way around on the keyboard base, meaning like a laptop or inverted, so it can be folded down like a raised notepad on a desk or stood up as a display.

It’s worth noting that the tablet can only be detached while the Surface Book has power, which means if it dies in your hands then there’s no reattaching it or detaching it to flip it over and close it properly.

The screen is very sharp, on a par with an iPad or Google Pixel C, samas kui tema 3:2 aspect ratio means it’s about the size of an A4 bit of paper. Websites, comics and books all look great. It has two front-facing speakers that are loud and clear for watching video, while the headphones port is in the tablet, not the keyboard.

The 13.5in screen means its significantly bigger than most other tablets and at 726g it’s also pretty heavy. Despite being a full-blooded PC it’s still only 7.7mm thick, which is really quite impressive. That’s thinner than most smartphones.

I managed to get around three hours of reading life out of the tablet with a decent brightness. Microsoft reckons it will stretch to four hours for video playback. The tablet can also be charged separately from the keyboard, should you need to.

The biggest drawback of a PC as a tablet is that the instant-on nature of most other tablets isn’t quite as instant for Windows. It can be a couple of seconds if it’s shut down and not just asleep, which it does after a set period.

Surface Pen

Microsoft’s stylus is one of the best in the business, with a good weight and size. It magnetically attaches to the side of the screen, which stayed put when I was moving around, but got knocked off in a bag.

Sellel on 1,024 levels of pressure sensitivity and really does feel like a pen on paper. The nib can also be changed if you prefer a harder or softer feel.

There are two buttons. One on the side acts like a modifier key for tap or drawing actions. The top button acts like an eraser and can be configured to launch various programs or perform actions when single, or double press or a press and hold. By default it launches OneNote on a press, which allows you to draw on the screen in a second or so.

Hind

The Microsoft Surface Book starts at £1,299 for the base model with 128GB of storage, a Core i5 and 8GB of RAM, but without a discrete graphics card in the keyboard.

The i5 version with 256GB of storage and a discrete GPU it costs £1,599. The Core i7 version with 256GB, 8GB of RAM and the discrete GPU costs £1,799 and with 512GB of storage and 16GB of RAM £2,249.

Võrdluseks, Apple’s 13in MacBook Pro (just laptop) starts at £900, Delli XPS 12 2-in-1 starts at £899 and Asus’s convertible T300CHI £800.

Vaatlused

  • It’s a work in progress: I’ve had a couple of updates that have fixed issues and strange behaviour with the machine
  • Occasionally it wouldn’t charge through the keyboard until disconnecting and reconnecting the screen
  • Sometimes it won’t enter tablet mode, requiring a restart
  • Power-saving mode is essential if using like a tablet
  • It uses more of the battery in the laptop first, so the tablet has some juice left to detach it (you can also charge the tablet separately)
  • Occasionally it would power on when it was meant to be asleep, cooking itself in a bag
  • The fans only fire up when when trying to do something heavy, normally it’s completely silent
  • A dock is available to turn it into a pseudo-desktop, with ethernet, USB, headphones and multiple mini DisplayPorts. Aga, a monitor that worked fine when plugged directly into the Surface Book wouldn’t work when plugged into the dock.

Otsus

Surface Book on üks parimaid Windows 10 sülearvutid. Aga selle poole tükk on rohkem kui trikk. Kui kehast eraldatud ekraani teeb korralik, kui lühiajaline, Tablett, mis on super õhuke ja kerge hoida.

Ekraan on suur, the hinge is interesting and the mechanism for detaching and re-attaching works very well.

The Surface Book is arguably the best compromise yet between a laptop and a tablet, if your main usage is going to be as a laptop. It solves the problems of the Surface Pro when being used on your lap or anything other than a desk.

Kuid, as a tablet, the apps available for iOS or Android for offline media consumption or similar are missing, as are mobile games. It’s also very expensive – but for that money you get a powerful machine, with an excellent stylus and a work-ready battery.

Plussid: suurepärane klaviatuur, decent trackpad, geniaalne ekraan, great stylus, 13-hour battery, fancy hinge, great 2-in-1 compromise, proper ports, Windows Tere

Miinused: Windows has a tablet app gap, software bugs, kallis, tablet-only battery could be longer, heavy for a tablet, HiDPI mode fails for desktop apps, interface is a mess if you dig deep enough
