Permukaan Book adalah yang pertama daripada barisan baru komputer riba daripada Microsoft dengan sentuhan, skrin datang kira.

Surface Pro garis Microsoft bermula clunky: besar, berat dan agak industri dalam reka bentuk. Terkini Surface Pro 4 adalah lebih nipis dan lebih mampu, tetapi cukup banyak yang sama: Windows 10 tablet dengan papan kekunci boleh tanggal.

Tetapi permukaan Buku adalah haiwan yang berbeza sama sekali: komputer riba pertama, tablet kedua. Ia berbunyi seperti satu perbezaan yang ganjil, tetapi ia membuatkan agak perbezaan jika papan kekunci adalah pemandu utama anda komputer.

Laptop pertama, tablet kedua

Bercakap papan kekunci, ia bukan sahaja aksesori yang bisu. Ia memegang bateri yang lebih besar, slot kad SD, dua USB 3.0 pelabuhan, DisplayPort mini dan soket pengecasan magnet. Tetapi ia juga boleh mempunyai kad grafik diskret di dalamnya, bergantung kepada model, memberi Permukaan Tempah lebih mengomel apabila diperlukan.

Selebihnya cara kerja komputer adalah termasuk dalam skrin, yang menjadikan ia jauh lebih hebat lagi betapa nipis ia adalah.

skrin dan papan kekunci yang dihubungkan dengan engsel Fulcrum mewah yang bergolek bukan hanya berputar. Ia memanjangkan tempoh asas papan kekunci untuk keseimbangan yang lebih baik skrin, tanpa perlu menambah berat badan.

Ia kelihatan pelik, hampir sejuk, dan dalam amalan berfungsi dengan baik. Ia tidak sengetkan agak sejauh beberapa komputer riba lain, tetapi cukup jauh untuk keselesaan menonton di meja.

Papan kekunci dan skrin yang diperbuat daripada aloi magnesium kelabu, yang kelihatan dan berasa baik, tetapi markah dengan mudah. Dalam masa yang singkat saya dengan Surface Kitab Saya dapati calar di bahagian bawah papan kekunci dan tanda pada bibir walaupun menjaga dengan hati-hati.

apabila ditutup, engsel tidak kali ganda rata, sebaliknya ia mempunyai jurang kira-kira lebar jari yang mewujudkan bentuk baji yang menirus dari 22.8mm ke titik 13mm tebal.

Windows 10

Seperti yang anda jangkakan, menjadi mesin Microsoft buatan, Surface Tempah berjalan Windows 10, yang boleh dikatakan terbaik Windows versi setakat ini.

Perisian ini tidak benar-benar mempunyai apa-apa tweak tertentu atau penyesuaian untuk Surface Kitab yang tidak terdapat pada mana-mana Windows lain 10 tukar.

Sistem operasi adalah kedua-dua ditapis dan keadaan huru-hara dalam perkadaran yang sama. Cara terbaik untuk menggambarkan ia adalah moden, antara muka pengguna overhauled berlapis terus di atas Windows yang sama berusia.

Pandu arah, melancarkan program dan perniagaan harian beroperasi di lapisan atas ini dan benar-benar agak mudah untuk digunakan dan berguna. Tetapi apabila anda perlu mengubah sesuatu yang serius, membuang pemasangan program desktop misalnya, anda dapat boot semula ke dalam Panel Kawalan yang sama saya ingat dari Windows 2000 – ia hampir tidak berubah.

Ia berkuasa, sudah tentu, dan anda boleh mendapatkan apa yang anda perlukan dilakukan, tetapi perbezaan antara apa yang pada asasnya Windows 10 layer and the underworkings is quite jarring. For the uninitiated I suspect it could be quite baffling, particularly if you’re using your finger at the time and suddenly have to tap on tiny boxes.

For more on Windows 10 membaca:

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

The Surface Book’s keyboard and trackpad are excellent. Gambar: Samuel Gibbs untuk Guardian

First and foremost, the Surface Book is the best Windows laptop I have ever used. Period. Ia cepat, 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, keyboard, 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, while its 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.

Ia ada 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.

Harga

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.

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

pemerhatian

  • 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. Walau bagaimanapun, a monitor that worked fine when plugged directly into the Surface Book wouldn’t work when plugged into the dock.

Keputusan

Permukaan Book adalah salah satu daripada Windows yang terbaik 10 komputer riba. Tetapi sekeping parti adalah lebih daripada gimik. Ketika berpisah dari badan skrin membuat untuk yang baik, jika kekal lama, tablet yang super nipis dan mudah untuk memegang.

skrin besar, 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.

Tetapi, 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.

Kebaikan: papan kekunci yang sangat baik, decent trackpad, brilliant screen, great stylus, 13-hour battery, fancy hinge, great 2-in-1 compromise, proper ports, Windows Hello

Cons: Windows has a tablet app gap, software bugs, mahal, 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
