Ngokuyinhloko, eNcwadini Ebusweni iyona engcono kunazo Windows laptop engake esetshenziswa. Isikhathi. Akuve fast, ine omuhle kakhulu ikhibhodi ekhanyayo, isiqeshana sokuhambisa iminwe ayisimanga, namachweba akhona ngokwanele futhi kungcono kuqhathaniswa ukukhanya nje phezu 1.5kg.

Ezinye laptops Windows kukhona ohlabayo, abanye alula, kodwa akekho abe akamuhle kangako inhlanganisela kwesikrini, ikhibhodi, amandla kanye design zezimboni.

Ngakwazi ukuthola ukuthi ube nosuku oluhle nisebenzela kuwo kwamandla ebhethri bese namanje kwadingeka ngokwanele ukuba kancane ukufundwa ukukhanya on ekhaya ngesitimela nedivaysi.

Lesi sibhebhe sibizwa ibambelele ikhibhodi ngumuntu fancy kakhulu "inkumbulo wire" locking mshini, eshintsha shape uma wamanje sisetshenziswa yonkana it. I mshini electronic: ngokucindezela inkinobho on the keyboard noma i icon esibukweni disengages ithebhulethi.

Kufanele donsa ngqo phezulu nhlangothi zombili ngenkathi ebambe ikhibhodi phansi. It sounds kanzima, kodwa akuyona. Ifaka kumane icala plonking kwesikrini phezu izixhumi. I grip ababili nomunye ngokuzenzakalelayo.

Isikrini zingafakwa noma kunjalo nxazonke phezu base ikhibhodi, okusho like a laptop noma okuhlanekezelwe, ngakho-ke kungenziwa eligoqiwe phansi like incwajana imphakamisele kwedeski noma basukuma njengeqembu umbukiso.

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.

Ine 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.

Price

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.

kokuma

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

Isinqumo

INcwadi Surface kungenye yezindlela ezingcono kakhulu Windows 10 laptops. Kodwa eceleni ucezu kuyinto engaphezu gimmick. Lapho bathinteka emzimbeni screen kwenza ehloniphekile, uma ibingaba eyesikhashana ngempela, tablet lokho super slim futhi kulula ubambe.

Isikrini mkhulu, 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.

Kodwa, 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.

Buhle: excellent keyboard, decent trackpad, brilliant screen, great stylus, 13-hour battery, fancy hinge, great 2-in-1 compromise, proper ports, Windows Sawubona

Bawo: Windows has a tablet app gap, software bugs, ezibizayo, 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
